The chimney is designed to get rid of harmful pollutants from your home which is why it should be maintained properly and regularly checked.


  • Check for obstructions such as bird nests, leaves, and pieces of brick that may be blocking pollutants from getting out of the home. If you find any items blocking the chimney, remove them if you can or ask a professional to do this. 
  • If you have a screen or grate to block any pests or animals from getting into your home, make sure it is in good condition and not broken or scratched.
  • Replace the screen if it is not in good condition.
