The following signs indicate a chimney in need of a cleaning:

  • Burned wood odors coming from the fireplace when it’s not being used.
  • Fires that seem to burn poorly or that dump a bunch of smoke into the room.
  • A black damper. Since it sits right above the firebox, the damper is often the easiest thing to see and reach. And it gets caked with creosote. Look or reach inside, and see what you can find. If you see black gunk or you can pull out chunks of the stuff, there’s a good amount of creosote built up inside. More Information can be found here
