The chimney in your home is another important structure that should be given proper cleaning and maintenance. Your chimney was built in order to serve a particular function in releasing harmful gases through the air coming either from a fireplace or any appliance that is attached to, such as a wood stove.

Chimneys work in three significant ways:

  • Remove exhaust gases from boilers and keep the flow of air
  • Discharge poisonous gases so that they won’t harm the surrounding air
  • Supply the right amount of air to the fireplace for proper combustion

How chimneys protect you

Without a properly working vent in chimneys, fuel, gas, or oil coming from your fireplace or fuel appliance will not be released properly.  Carbon monoxide, for example, is just one of the hazardous gases that can come from combusted products. The functionality of the chimney, the health of its flue, and the integrity of the entire column that surrounds the brickwork are crucial for human health. When the chimney fails, the carbon monoxide accumulated can cause harm, illness, or even death, as it spreads through the house when there is inadequate venting.

Chimneys also play a vital function in protecting your home from fire. Overheated flues coming from fireplaces can enter through cracks in the clay, damaging flue liner and mortar joints, leaving holes for igniting fire against the framing members or the chimney.

Factors of chimney failure:

Chimneys can become blocked due to many possibilities. If the vents are blocked, there will be insufficient venting. 

  • Deteriorating structure or masonry
  • Collected bird manure or nests
  • Overaccumulation of carbon monoxide that enters into chimney vents and produces moisture
  • Accumulated creosote on the inner walls can become a fire hazard
