Ah, the holiday season. It starts at Thanksgiving and celebrates the time to gather with loved ones while taking stock of life’s blessings – and eat lots of turkey. Once the feast is devoured and the guests have gone, our thoughts quickly turn to garland, hanging lights, and decking the halls for the holidays.

But just because your gas fireplace burns clean doesn’t mean it doesn’t need cleaning!
