Obstructions & Pests
During spring and summer, animals could have made homes in your chimneys. This can cause the smoke and carbon monoxide not to escape through the chimney and return to the house, which could be dangerous.
You could have creosote in your chimney, which is highly flammable! This leads to chimney fires and house fires. Creosote isn’t something you can easily remove; you need professional help to eliminate it completely.
Damages and Structural Problems
The chimney’s component needs to be in good shape to protect your home from water damage, fire, and carbon monoxide. But they can get damaged easily from harsh weather and chemical compound.
