Understanding The Risk of Chimney Fires

Regular Sweeping Helps Prevent Chimney Fires in Jacksonville

There’s nothing better than enjoying the cozy ambiance and radiating warmth of a roaring fire in your fireplace on a cool night. But before you fire up for the season, make sure that your chimney is clean and ready. A dirty chimney is fertile fuel for a fire, and you may not even realize what is happening.

Two Types of Chimney Fires

You see, there are two types of chimney fires:

Detected FiresThese fires are scary and can be explosive. They are often accompanied by loud cracking and popping, heavy smoke, and an intense, hot smell. Flames will shoot from the top of the chimney, and the fire can sound like a freight train or low-flying airplane.

Undetected FiresThese are slow-burning fires that don’t get enough air or fuel to be dramatic or even visible. But don’t let that fool you. They can burn hot enough to cause as much damage to the chimney and other parts of your house as detected fires. That makes them just as dangerous, if not more.

Scheduling regular chimney inspections can definitely lessen the chance that you’ll have a chimney fire, and will also allow a certified chimney sweep to determine if you’ve had a previous fire in the system. An inspector from Chimney Champions® will be able to assess any damage, make minor repairs, and recommend major repairs if needed.

Did I Have a Chimney Fire?

To know if you’ve had a chimney fire and to prevent future fires, we recommend a full inspection and cleaning. Here are some common signs that indicate a fire likely occurred:

  • “Puffy” or “honey combed” creosote
  • Warped metal of the damper, metal smoke chamber connector pipe, or factory-built metal chimney
  • Cracked or collapsed flue tiles, or tiles with large chunks missing
  • Discolored or distorted rain cap
  • Creosote flakes found on the roof or ground
  • Roofing material damaged from hot creosote
  • Cracks in exterior masonry
  • Evidence of smoke escaping through mortar joints of masonry or tile liners
