Policy wording

by Wayne
(Ontario)

What exactly does "reasonable maintenance" mean. It seems to me that it is open to a very wide interpretation by both insurers and insured. As such, why is it used? Specifically, what is the industry stand on chimney cleaning of a wood burning fireplace?


Reasonable Maintenance and Chimney Cleaning


Reasonable is used in legal terms often. What would a reasonable person do in your situation? Or better yet, what would a professional recommend?

The chimney of a wood burning fireplace should be cleaned no less than once per year.

Hope that helps
