Creosote results from the residue that is built up inside your chimney when a burning fire is exhausted through it. The cooler air creates condensation, which attaches itself to the lining walls of the chimney. This creosote presents a fire hazard. Therefore, the National Fire Protection Association standard calls for home chimneys to be inspected and cleaned at least once a year.
Chimneys can also fall prey to the weather. Precipitation deteriorates your chimney and can destroy it over time. The water molecules penetrate the materials and then freeze and expand, causing stress and harm to your chimney.
