Hurricane season is upon us and most who live near the coast know what that means; major preparation and horrible damage.
Hurricanes threaten lives and also cause thousands of dollars worth of property damage.
Last year alone, 15 lives were taken by hurricanes (not within the United States). While that may seem insignificant, the fact still remains; hurricanes take lives.
While it is most important to protect your life, your house needs to be taken care of as well.
During strong weather and hurricanes, things and shall we say, critters, can enter your chimney. From squirrels and snakes, to even small debris, when hurricanes happen, your chimney can become clogged.
It is important that prior to a hurricane, your chimney has a chimney cap to prevent strong winds from bringing things into your chimney.
In the unfortunate event that your home is over taken in a hurricane, know this: We stand with you, and will do whatever we can to help you during the difficult time.
