During winter, it’s normal to build a fire in your fireplace to get your home warm and cozy. However, if your whole house fills up with smoke, it could signal a problem with your chimney. A house full of smoke is not only a nuisance but also a safety hazard.
Here is how you can identify the cause of your smoke draw problem before you need to start using your fireplace again:
- Your damper is closed – try opening it before lighting a fire in your fireplace.
- You have a chimney blockage – this could be from creosote buildup or animal and bird nests in your chimney.
It’s wise to hire a professional for animal removal and chimney damper repair services. Contact Chimney Sweeps of America today for chimney repair services.
