True, with a population of roughly 2,100 people, this little village in Waukesha county isn’t exactly booming, but the residents who live here love it. Tucked away west of Milwaukee, it’s nestled in amidst long, sprawling country roads and lots of gorgeous farmland.
Established by three men from Mukwonago, the village was originally settled by blacksmiths and farmers. And, while it never really hit it big, at its peak it did have three whole grocery stores, multiple taverns, three gas stations, and more than a few industry businesses.
That boom has long since passed, however, and this cute community has settled down with one tavern (with one heck of a Friday fish fry), one diner, and a pair of gas stations. What it does still have, however, are plenty of wood-burning fireplaces. (And its own hometown hair band!)
To keep those well-loved fireplaces safe and functional throughout the year, homeowners out here call Smoke Stacks, Inc. They know that having regular inspections is the best way to keep their families and properties safe—and to keep themselves warm when winter hits!
Chimney Sweeping Services in North Prairie, WI
Many new homeowners don’t realize it, but with every use of a fireplace, a potentially dangerous substance called creosote is released into the chimney. Over time this creosote, which is a brown oil derived from coal tar, builds up in the chimney. And, if it isn’t scrubbed away, it can become a fire and health hazard.
By scrubbing away these deposits, Smoke Stacks’ professional chimney sweepers can help protect and restore a chimney, lessening the risk of long-term health and structure damage to the fireplace and chimney.
