If it’s been more than a year, your family could be at risk! According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America your chimney and flue should be inspected annually.
When you use your fireplace or wood stove, a highly flammable material called creosote accumulates in the chimney. If untreated, this creosote could lead to a chimney fire.
Gas or oil appliances do not produce creosote. However, they produce corrosive gases, which can cause the chimney/flue to deteriorate over time. An annual inspection can identify potential problems before your safety is jeopardized.
Chimney sweeping helps to remove combustible material like creosote, animal nests, and leaves.
