FACTS: BACKGROUND INFORMATION-CHIMNEY SWEEPING
Annual chimney inspection / cleaning is recommended by NFIA (National Fireplace Institute Of America). Cracks / defects can occur at any time due to settling, unknown chimney fires (common), etc. For a safe chimney, these defects need to be uncovered & repaired.
Creosote, a dangerous combustible buildup (regardless of firewood quality or type) must be removed annually to minimize risk of hostile chimney fires.
