Is Creosote Building Up In Your Chimney? We Can Clean It Out In No Time!

Scheduling chimney inspections at least once per year and cleanings as needed is recommended by the CSIA, as well as most fire safety groups. If creosote and other debris is allowed to build up, the safety and efficiency of your chimney will be greatly reduced. Creosote is known for being highly flammable, and the more of it there is, the higher your chances are for chimney fires. But with regular chimney cleanings, you won’t have to worry about creosote.
In addition to our chimney inspections and cleanings, we offer a wide range of repairs and installations. Check out our list below:

Are There Limitations to Chimney Sweeping Logs?

Yes! Although these are not considered unsafe for use, they do have their limits…and they should never replace a chimney sweeping completed by a professional technician. Here’s why:

  1. They may not work on severe creosote buildup. Creosote sweeping logs are most effective when used as a preventive measure or on mild creosote buildup. If the buildup is severe, it may not be effective in reducing it and other methods may be needed.
  2. They may not be suitable for all types of chimneys. Creosote sweeping logs are not suitable for all types of chimneys. For example, if you have a wood stove with a catalytic combustor, using these logs may damage the combustor and void your warranty.
  3. The chemicals released may be harmful. Creosote sweeping logs release chemicals that break down creosote. While these chemicals are generally safe when used as directed, they may be harmful if ingested or inhaled. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully and use the logs in a well-ventilated area.
  4. They’re not a long-term solution. Creosote sweeping logs are not a long-term solution to creosote buildup. Regular chimney cleaning and proper burning practices are the best ways to prevent creosote buildup and ensure your chimney is safe and efficient for use.
  5. They may not address underlying issues. Creosote buildup can be caused by a variety of factors, such as burning unseasoned wood or poor ventilation. While creosote sweeping logs can help reduce creosote buildup, they may not address underlying issues that are contributing to the problem.
  6. They’re not a guarantee. While creosote sweeping logs can be effective in reducing creosote buildup, they are not a guarantee. Depending on the severity of the buildup and how you routinely operate your fireplace, you may still need to have your chimney professionally swept.

The biggest problems with creosote sweeping logs is that they create a false sense of security, when in reality your system still could be dangerous to use. While they may offer some convenience and help to reduce creosote buildup, they are not a substitute for regular professional chimney service. It’s important to prioritize chimney safety by scheduling regular inspections and cleanings, following proper burning practices, and being aware of any signs of chimney problems, such as smoke back-up or debris coming from the chimney.
