Chimney Safety Advice

What is happening?

A clean and inspection is needed due to the smoke produced by your fire. During a clean, Creosote is removed, the tiny by-product of wood burning which naturally builds up on the walls of your chimney. These tiny unburned but flammable solid particles adhere and harden to the walls after extensive use.

This creosote which is known as soot, is what we take out during a clean. Over time the soot is refined by heat and becomes an extremely flammable material. A chimney fire can collapse a masonry chimney by destroying the mortar. Furthermore, with soot building up this reduces the flow of air out of your flue. The chance of smoke coming back in the house is increased.

Only a professional can remove the soot safely.
