Gas appliances generate some soot and carbon, similarly to wood-burning fires. This leaves deposits in the chimney the same way, and requires cleaning.

When moisture, age, and usage of your fireplace begin to wear away at areas of the firebox (the part of the fireplace where the fire is built), there can be some major issues that begin to form within it. Firebox damage is relatively common where issues such as: cracks / cracking, holes, and dangerous voids can form; which can greatly affects the usage, safety, and performance of your fireplace.
What’s The Harm In Having A Damaged Firebox?
You likely already know that a damaged firebox can make the entire fireplace look worn down and unattractive, but the greatest harm is not aesthetics. The real danger is that these cracks and openings can be used to transfer dangerous heat, hot ash, burning embers, and toxic gases produced by the fire to walls and framing.
This can lead to problems like:
- House fire
- Wood rot and framing damage
- Masonry deterioration
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
If you suspect you have firebox damage or if an inspection with a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified sweep has revealed damage, please don’t use your fireplace without first making repairs. Take the time to have repairs made — for safety, comfort, and peace of mind.
