It’s something you can’t see, but it’s also a vital part of an effectively-performing chimney. If there isn’t one in place, or the current chimney lining is damaged, then serious problems can occur. These can include:
- Combustible creosote building up on the inside of your chimney
- Dangerous and poisonous gases remaining in your home rather than being expelled through the chimney
- Heat can invade your attic or building structures – a huge fire hazard
- Material becoming lodged in your chimney; this creates an obstruction which could trap carbon monoxide inside your home
If you are unsure whether your chimney lining is doing its job, please speak to our team here at Chimney Sweeps of America.
