When you work with us, you can be confident that you are always getting safe and quality service.

What Is Creosote?

Creosote is a substance that is left behind from burning wood. Unlike ash, creosote has not been thoroughly consumed by fire; it is composed of tiny unburned wood particles that drift up your chimney and become coated on the side of the flue. Creosote builds up in all flues, and it builds up more rapidly the more often you use your chimney. Over time, the creosote will harden and become more difficult to remove. Thick layers of creosote can easily catch on fire, and they can also keep smoke from safely exiting your flue.

While many people believe that they can avoid creosote buildup by only burning certain types of wood, creosote can actually form from any type of wood. If the smoke coming out of your chimney is noticeably dark, it means that it contains a lot of creosote. The only safe way to keep creosote out of your chimney is to have it routinely cleaned.

When to Have Your Chimney Inspected

According to the National Fire Protection Association, all chimneys should receive yearly inspections and cleanings to prevent flue clogs. However, annual cleanings may not be sufficient to keep your chimney clean, especially if you use it frequently. Here are some additional reasons you may want to have your chimney looked at by a professional:

When you add a stove or upgrade your heating system. This allows your chimney professional to check to ensure that your chimney is capable of handling the demands of the changes you have made to your heating system.

When your fireplace is working poorly. If your fireplace is emitting excessive amounts of smoke, it means that your flue is likely clogged with too much creosote. Stop using your fireplace immediately until it has been thoroughly cleaned by a professional chimney sweep.

When you have not used your fireplace in a long time. When your chimney goes unused for months or even weeks, dirt and debris can build up inside the flue. Pests can also take up residence inside your chimney, and the liner may be affected by the weather. Using a chimney that has not been cleaned in a long time can be dangerous.
