Common Repair Concerns
There may also be debris in your chimney that is caused by birds and other animals that have built their nests. It could also be caused by a deteriorating masonry. Carbon monoxide can also seep through tiny holes and cracks or flues that are created by moisture, residue, or even previous chimney fires.
A chimney fire can happen when hot gasses or cinders ignite creosote that is left on the flue walls. Because creosote is a by-product of burning wood, it naturally accumulates on the walls of your flue and if left there, could possibly cause fire.
It is for the reasons pointed out above that you should ensure the regular maintenance of your chimney system. Have your chimney inspected and cleaned two times every year. Of course, the frequency of the sweeping and inspection depends on how often you use your chimney as well.
