Unseen issues can be catastrophic.

The Chimney Repair process begins by inspecting the chimney for any signs of damage before making repairs. Damaged mortar may be repaired by adding new mortar or removing excess material, which may then be patched with a suitable patching material or left un-repaired if less than an inch of brick is affected.

You should ENJOY your fireplace, not stress about it!

Damaged bricks are typically replaced with new bricks, but if this is not possible due to excessive cracks in the wall surrounding the brick, they are removed and new bricks are inserted into place of them. All joints should be checked for loose masonry that could affect their integrity and stability before repairs commence on other areas on the chimneys exterior surface such as top caps, crowns, shields or facings which can also experience wear that weakens their structural integrity over time through normal wear-and-tear like weathering
