Dangers Of A Dirty and Damaged Chimney
Dirty chimneys pose threats to all who live inside your home. The biggest issue is creosote accumulation. It forms with each fire you burn, and it’s important to keep the formation of creosote at bay, as it is highly flammable. The more it accumulates, this puts you at a higher risk for a chimney fire!
As you can imagine, chimney fires are extremely hazardous to the health and functionality of your fireplace. Once this occurs, the appliance is unsafe to use. If you continue to use it, this could lead to a potential house fire. Unfortunately, chimney fires are not very obvious. Many people don’t even realize they’ve experienced one after it. This means they will continue to use their fireplace when they should not.
