Some of these fires could have been prevented by a proper chimney sweeping.

Chimney Health Benefits
Fire Prevention — Fireplaces create soot and creosote while burning wood. Creosote is extremely flammable and easily combustible in large amounts. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), only 1/8″ of soot build-up can cause a fire. A chimney fire not only will be detrimental to the chimney system, but could destroy your home. Securing the safety of the hearth and home by scheduling an inspection and cleaning with a CSIA certified technician.
Flue Protection – An annual cleaning and inspection by an experienced professional will significantly increase the lifespan of the chimney flue liner and ensure the safety of your home. The flue is the gateway that takes harmful toxins, smoke, and gas outside. If the chimney flue becomes compromised by an excessive amount of creosote and soot, then it can cause fires as previously mentioned. It could allow exhaust fumes into your home, leading to health concerns for those inside.
Heating Efficiency – One of the top benefits of owning a fireplace is the ability to efficiently heat your home. Of course, if the fireplace and chimney become clogged with excessive amounts of soot and creosote, then it will fail to efficiently heat the home. An annual chimney sweep will keep your home feeling warm and comfortable throughout the winter months.
Prevent Stench – During the warmer months, a smelly chimney is the most common sign that your chimney needs to be cleaned. The smell is the result of creosote, soot and animal obstructions building up, moisture entering the chimney, negative air pressure in the home. To avoid the stinky chimney experience altogether, schedule your annual chimney sweep appointment with Sootmaster!
