As the cool weather comes in, more customers may come to you with questions about how to get their fireplaces ready for winter. This guide leads sales staff through common questions about how to prepare their fireplace for more regular use.

Bring It to Them
In addition to making this resource available for your staff to review, consider hosting a fireplace safety event with your local fire station. Invite customers to learn the basics of fireplace safety from local firefighters and include giveaways and raffles, such as carbon monoxide detectors and fireplace screens. Have certified fire extinguisher inspectors on-site so customers can rest assured they have safety precautions in place before they light a fire.
