Fireplaces are widely burnt in homes during winters. However, during summer time, because of infrequent use and negligence, chimneys can run into problems. Chimneys can look fine from the outside but regular maintenance and inspection is necessary to ensure that they burn seamlessly and efficiently when needed. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends inspecting chimneys, fireplaces and vents once a year in order to keep them fully functional.
Chimney problems can range from small inconvenience to major safety or health issue. The most important fire hazard results due to flammable elements that are found within the chimney walls. If not treated, these substances can cause unpleasant smells, corrosion of the chimney walls, and chimney fires.
Chimney opening vent may get blocked by bird nests and other debris. It also causes smoke to leak back into the house. Severe weather conditions, such as snow, sleet and wind can also decrease the effectiveness of the vent system of a chimney and can cause its gradual deterioration.
A trained chimney professional should be able to assess a chimney’s condition, safety and performance. Be proactive and get your chimneys ready for winter.
