Semi-detached home shared flue fireplace
Hi this is my first post to this forum so forgive me if I make any etiquette faux-pas.
I recently purchased a 1924 semi-detached home in Toronto, Ontario. The two houses seem to be sharing the same flue for wood burning fireplaces (one in each house). I tried to get a chimney sweep to clean it, but refused telling me that it was illegal to use/clean. Is he right?
Would anyone know of any codes/by-laws that would support the sweeps statement.
