Sadly, many homeowners will experience first hand the danger and damages from a chimney fire. It is very important to regularly clean your chimney to avoid this. Unseen dangers can result from even a "small" chimney fire. If the fire department comes to your aid and states that the chimney has been cleared, there is still a risk of damage to the tile liner that could expose the structure of your home to extreme temperatures and flue gas hazards. Always have a chimney inspection done after a chimney fire. Chimney fires are almost always covered by homeowner's insurance policies.
Black Knight Chimney, Inc. employs video scan technology to verify the extent of damages due to chimney fire.
Smoke chambers are triangular ares that funnel smoke into the actual chimney. Smoke chambers can not be cleaned from the top of a chimney. Smoke shelf is the area behind the damper. Smoke shelf areas are where most chimney fires start. Smoke shelves vary in size with some being huge and capable of holding vast amounts of soot and creosote. Smoke shelves must also be cleaned to prevent hot, unacccessible fires in this area.
