A chimney is the heart of the home and should be treated as such. Most people get a yearly check-up but not a chimney cleaning/inspection. Why is this? Some people do not know the risk of having a damaged or uncleaned chimney. From animals getting in the chimney and giving a list of diseases ranging from Salmonella to Cryptococcosis to you and your family not to mention the increased risk of a chimney fire. The center of all life in the home has been the fireplace as far back as the 8th century when the Greeks worshiped Hestia the goddess of the hearth. People no longer have the respect for the chimney as they once did but it’s still an essential part of a heating, entertainment, and ambiance.
An uncleaned chimney can release dangerous gas from burning substances such as creosote, if the flue pipe is blocked or the chimney cap is closed the smoke will get inside the house.

An annual chimney inspection and cleaning can prevent respiratory problems, thousands of dollars worth of damage later on, and is recommended by the CSIA. The most hazardous thing that can happen is if you leave the damper closed and have an uncleaned chimney. This will cause a lot of toxic smoke to enter the house. This is an easy fix whereas if creosote is inside your chimney it can cause a chimney fire in the flue, this can dry out the wood around the flue pipe igniting it and catching your house on fire.
