What You Should Know About Chimney Maintenance:

  • According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), your chimney, fireplace, woodstove, and venting system needs to be inspected once a year, and cleaned as needed.
  • Proper cleaning removes combustible deposits like creosote which can ignite and cause a devastating fire. A proper cleaning also ensures that there are no leaks or cracks in your venting system.
  • Carbon monoxide is a highly toxic by-product of burning wood and other fuels. Carbon monoxide can cause health issues such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, and even death if not properly directed out of your house.
  • Inexperienced and untrained chimney sweeps will make a huge mess in your house while attempting to clean your chimney and fireplace.
  • The venting on your clothes dryer also needs to be cleaned and inspected once a year. Cleaning the lint trap is not enough. If your dryer is not properly vented, it is a huge fire and toxic gas risk.

Are You In Lake Forest or Paradise?

Lake Forest was designed by noted landscape gardener, Almerin Hotchkiss, in 1857. The Hotchkiss plan was to maximize the natural beauty of the area and create the streets, neighborhoods, and business districts to showcase, rather than detract from, the water, bluffs, and ravines. Throughout the years, Lake Bluff has continued with the original Hotchkiss plan and you will not only find exquisite neighborhoods, but also striking architecture that enhances the beauty of the area.

Awesome Lake Forest

The breathtaking views from the Bluffs, the breeze from the lake, and the many historical sites make Lake Forest an awesome place to be. Here are some other reasons why residents and visitors love Lake Forest:

  • Market Square Downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has unique shopping, concerts and festivals.
  • Deerpath Golf Course is an historic 18-hole public course set on a backdrop of streams and ponds.
  • McCormick Woods Nature Preserve has over 61 acres of nature to enjoy while walking, biking, hiking, skating and horseback riding. You can also fly model airplanes and sail model boats on the Preserve.
  • The Wildlife Discovery Center is exactly what its name describes. At WDC, visitors will observe plants, flowers, animals and amphibians in their natural habitat, learn about the environment and explore the interpretative trails.
  • Forest Park Beach is open during all 4 seasons with full amenities: a sand beach, picnic areas, a boat launch, sailing, sailboat and kayak rentals, volleyball courts and a fishing pier. The Raging Kitchen at the Beach will not only feed hungry beachgoers but also hosts community events.
  • CenterStage is a unique theatrical experience for both actors and audience. The theater attracts actors and want-to-be actors of all ages.
