A chimney does more than vent smoke outside, It also protects your home from harsh chemicals, toxic gases and high temperatures produced by the fireplace. Damage to your chimney can put your home at grave risk.
Even though chimneys are made of fire resistance materials, they are still affected by wear-and-tear. Metal flue liners and dampers can become warped or corrode. Tile flue liners can crack and crumble. The bricks and mortar that keep your chimney together can deteriorate. All of these problems can have serious consequences such as increased risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, greater risk of a destructive house fire, or expensive structural damage. If you don’t have your chimney regularly inspected, you could be putting yourself and your home at risk.
