why clean the chimney?
The largest concern about owning a home with a chimney is the potential for chimney fires and blockage due to animals.
what is creosote?
Fires occur when creosote builds-up on the lining of your wood burning fireplace chimney. This is also the case with wood burning stoves. It is a highly combustible by-product of burning wood. It is black or brown in color and can be tar-like, drippy, hardened or shiny in nature. If it builds up in large quantities and the temperature of the flue is high enough the result could be a chimney fire.
