What the Fire Codes say:
The National Fire Code of Canada Section 22.214.171.124(1) states that
"Every chimney flue and flue pipe shall be inspected to identify any dangerous condition,
annually, at the time of addition of any appliance and after any chimney fire."
- The BC Fire Code of 1998 requires that every wood burning system be "inspected annually, and cleaned as often as necessary".
