Dangers & Damages Behind A Leak
So, what happens when a leak continues to occur? Unresolved water issues are a serious problem when it comes to your masonry chimney. Brickwork may seem strong and impenetrable, but it’s more like a sponge than you may think! It easily soaks in any excess water your system is exposed to, which causes it to break down a lot quicker over time.
You’re looking at a much weaker structure in the long run, and you’ll be forced to invest in costly and time-consuming repairs.
Along with this, water exposure leads to a lot of issues throughout your chimney system. Rust, rot, stains, clogs, and cracks are just some of the many problems that will start to occur, and all of these things make your fireplace unsuitable and unsafe for regular use.
Unfortunately, you could eventually face a chimney settlement or collapse.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I get my chimney swept?
According to The National Fire Protection Association Standard 211, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.”
My fireplace stinks, especially in the summer. What can I do?
The smell is because of creosote deposits within the chimney, a natural byproduct of woodburning. The odor is sometimes worse during the summer when the humidity is high the air conditioning is turned on. A typical sweeping will help but usually won’t solve the smell completely. There are commercial chimney deodorants that work well, and plenty of people have good results with kitty litter or maybe baking soda set inside the fireplace. The real problem is that the air being drawn down the chimney, an indication of overall pressure problems within the house. Some make-up air should be introduced someplace else in the house. A good sealing and a top-mounted damper will reduce this air flow coming down the chimney.
I have a gas fireplace. Should this chimney be checked too?
Without a doubt! Although gas is usually a clean-burning fuel, the chimney can become non-functional from bird nests or other debris blocking the flue. Modern furnaces may also cause many problems with the typical flues intended to vent the older generation of furnaces.
What's safe to burn in the fireplace?
You should only burn well-seasoned wood. Watch this video from the CSIA to learn what NOT to burn in your fireplace.
