A broken or obstructed chimney or fireplace can be a fire hazard for your home and create noxious smoke and carbon. Often, problems can go unnoticed, especially if you haven’t used your fireplace since last winter. If you are a new homeowner, you might have little or no information about how the fireplace was used in the past and how careful a former resident might have been.
