If I remove a chimney breast from one of my rooms do I need to support the chimney above?

My chimney has been unsupported for many years without any noticeable damage to my property. Do I really need to get my chimney supported?

Do you clean up after?

Absolutely. Unless the entire chimney is removed from the ground to above the roof line, chimney support in the form of gallows brackets or RSJ’s will be required to support the chimney above.
