Chimney Safety Tips

Be safe and you’ll never be sorry.

A chimney should only be used when exercising all the appropriate safely precautions. Keep up with routine maintenance, which is key to preventing a hazardous situation. Below are some suggestions to help you keep using your chimney safely for years to come.

  • Make sure your chimney sweep is CSIA Certified and experienced.
  • Schedule chimney service, chimney maintenance (as needed) and inspection once annually.
  • Check the wood you burn in your fireplace – it should be well-dried, seasoned hardwood.
  • Monitor your carbon monoxide detector – repair or replace if necessary.
  • If you don’t already have one, install a chimney cap.
  • Check to ensure that your chimney is waterproof.
  • Chimney flashing needs regular inspection and maintenance.
  • Does your wood-burning system have a sealing damper? If not, install one.
  • A correct chimney liner is critical to your safety. Have it professionally checked and changed if necessary.
