Poll: Do you get your chimney swept for winter?

Give it to us straight. Be honest.

IT’S TIME TO put a match to the open fire (or to yearn for one, if you don’t have a hearth in your home).

With a fire though comes the spectre of a chimney fire. Is that something that concerns you enough to have the chimney swept religiously before the cold weather really sets in every year?

Poll Results:

Yes, I get it done every year (2415)
Some but not every year (1855)
Hardly ever (1523)
I don't have a chimney/fire/stove (796)
