Baltimore, Maryland, USA – September 13, 2021 – According to research data from the Chimney Research Institute of America (CSIA), faulty chimneys are the second biggest cause of fires in both residential and commercial properties across all the states in America.
Reports from the CSIA indicate that, “The majority of chimney fires go undetected.” This is because chimneys are typically built to contain slow-burning fires. This means that at times, a chimney can be able to withstand slow burns until the temperatures become too high and cause excessive damage to the chimney structure so that its structural integrity becomes damaged. “When the structural damage becomes to a chimney excessive, it is a matter of when not if a fire starts.”
Apart from the apparent risk of a fire starting because of damage or clogs inside your chimney, there are also other inherent risks that come with a damaged chimney. “One of the major risks that come with using a damaged/faulty chimney is Carbon Monoxide poisoning and the worst thing about Carbon Monoxide seeping into your property because of a faulty chimney is that, when it happens, it will be too late for you to do anything about it. After all, Carbon Monoxide is a gas – which means it is virtually undetectable,” said Chimney Sweep Clean the Managing Director at Chimney Sweep Clean – The premier chimneys inspection and maintenance company in Baltimore, Maryland.
Chimney Sweep Clean a technician with over two decades experience in helping property owners across Maryland maintain chimneys in top shape, and who is currently employed at Chimney Clean Sweep said that though the structural nature of chimneys makes it virtually impossible for inexperienced homeowners to identify faults/problems, there are several things that can indicate that a chimney needs the attention of experienced maintenance professionals. They include cracked bricks, damaged mortar, damaged chimney caps, visible clogs inside the chimney, rotting wood, excessive creosote (soot) forming inside the chimney and sparks flying out of the chimney.
“When it comes to protecting to protecting a property from the risk of a chimney fire, a property owner has to ensure that they get the state and health of their chimney ascertained through regular inspections.
