A wood burning fireplace and its chimney should be inspected every year to ensure that it operates safely. A professional inspector will inspect the outside of the chimney and the firebox itself to make sure that they are structurally sound. They will also inspect the inside of the chimney flue to see if there are any blockages or a build-up of creosote, both of which are extremely dangerous.
