    The Enemy: Creosote

    Creosote is the natural byproduct of burning wood where the ash and smoke deposit upon the walls of a chimney or on a chimney cap as a black tar like substance. Creosote buildup will happen to anything which burns wood, such as stoves and fireplaces. Creosote, or soot should be swept out of a chimney or pipe as it a) is a very flammable substance which left unattended can lead to a chimney fire and B) significant creosote build-up constricts air flow in a chimney, reducing the effectiveness of the heating system. Furthermore, a weak draft will promote the build-up of Creosote thus increasing the likelihood of a chimney fire.

    In order to protect yourself, your property and its occupants make sure to have your chimney swept by a qualified professional on a regular basis.
