The Dangers Of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Not To Be Taken Lightly
Toxic gases can build up in the chimney system when it is not cleaned on a regular basis. It is prudent to make sure the chimney passage is clear and unblocked by having a professional chimney sweep come in and inspect your property.
Carbon monoxide poisoning has been in the news a lot recently and one of the causes is a blocked chimney passage not allowing free flow of fumes to the outside world. Many foreign bodies can obstruct a chimney including, soot, debris from the building, bird nests, plant material e.g. branches and leafs etc. A smoke draw test needs to be performed on all the chimneys in question to make sure there is proper ventilation.

Chimney Sweep Is For Good Luck At Your Wedding
A shake of the hand or kiss from a chimney sweep is sign of good luck for the happy couple. The tradition goes back to the 19th century when a chimney sweep fell from a roof and hanging by a thread from the gutter was saved by a woman intended to be married soon. She pulled him to safety, which meant saving his life and one thing led to another they fell in love and were later married.
