There are 2 main reasons to get your chimney cleaned: house fires and toxic fumes. Dirty chimneys build up creosote, which can catch fire. Some may think that it is not a big deal because the fire is still in the chimney, but there is a problem. That fire can heat the chimney walls to such a degree that it can make any materials touching them catch fire. Secondly, dirty chimneys typically have dirty flues. Flues are designed to allow the toxic gases like Carbon Monoxide to escape up the chimney. A dirty flue can keep those deadly gases from escaping, and instead, blow them into your home, which is among the leading causes of Carbon Monoxide poisonings.
