Chimneys seem harmless, but practice shows otherwise. During the journey of the smoke, heat and moisture moving at lightning speed in the chimney, some kind of chemistry is created. This chemistry causes a layer of carbon, also known as soot. Soot is made up of polycyclic aromatics, naphthalenes and other compounds. This mixture is known for its carcinogenic properties. This means that this carbon layer is inherently flammable and this can be dangerous. In general, the more soot in the fireplace, the more flammable the chimney.
