Yes. Completely blocked chimneys are easy to spot since the room will quickly be covered in soot. However, a gradual clogging (which is more common) is sometimes harder to detect. The soot escaping into the room cannot always be seen and is confused with the smell of smoke. You only see it when it settles on materials and light surfaces. When you see this it’s time to get the chimney cleaned before it gets completely blocked.
