Cool

Old chimneys are dangerous due to deterioration and creosote build-up. Have them all cleaned/inspected by a professional chimney sweep company with a video camera to lower down the chimney. If it is necessary, it is rather expensive to re-line chimneys with stainless steel flues or concrete, but that is the safest way to do it. Good Luck!
