Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:148 EcoTip: If you have a fireplace, it should be cleaned and inspected. Even if you don’t use it, animals may cause damage, build nests or die. Damaged flashing or caps can provide a pathway for water intrusion. A damaged firescreen not only permits sparks to exit the chimney, but in case of wild fire, may permit embers to enter – igniting the home from the inside.
