According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in 2005, there were 24,500 residential fires in the United States which originated in chimneys and fireplaces. Further study by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) discovered that virtually all of these fires could have been preventable with a yearly chimney inspection.

Unfortunately, many homeowners believe their chimneys only need to be cleaned and inspected if they burn wood. However, ALL fireplaces and stoves require regular chimney cleaning and maintenance. The National Fire Protection Association states:
"Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary."
