These types of blockages can impact venting, as well as cause gas and smoke to flow back into your home instead of up the chimney. However, chimney sweeping logs should never be used as an alternative to a professional chimney cleaning.

While it can be hard to tell, you should use a creosote sweeping log when the creosote layer is 1/8 of an inch thick. Should there be a problem and HETAS do not have a record of a HETAS certificate at the property then it is likely that you may not be insured.The build-up of tar and volatile organic compounds in your chimney can be dangerous as it reduces the flow of gases. The third stage is when the creosote turns into a glaze, and you will need to replace the chimney liner to get rid of everything. If a chimney sweep noticed any of these types of damages they will tell you so that you can be sure that any damage has been repaired before you use the fireplace again. There is no substitute for having your chimney cleaned and inspected by a licensed professional at least once a year. A copy of the certificate is also required to be sent to you and the installer will also retain a copy.

The CSL will work alone, however, placing the CSL on the hot embers will help prevent downdrafts (smoke coming back down the chimney) when the smoking action of the CSL process continues after the flames have died out. The metal HETAS plaque[see image] is about 3″ x 5″ and should be FIXED in or near your household mains electricity fuse box. Too low – under 120 degrees C: incomplete combustion can cause smoke, excessive carbon monoxide, flue clogging soot and highly inflammable creosote deposits inside the flue pipe (typical cause of chimney fires).

An experienced chimney sweep does much more than just clean out your fireplace and the fireplace flue.

When you get an inspection from a highly skilled chimney sweep you will have peace of mind knowing that your fireplace is now safe and damage free, able to withstand the use of the fireplace.By getting rid of the deposit, you can keep your chimney working efficiently, and you can reduce the chances of chimney fires.

However, regular use of a sweeping log helps to lengthen the interval between manual cleanings of the chimney. However, using these logs alone is never a good replacement for an annual chimney inspection and cleaning by a certified chimney sweep. Creosote fires are a major cause of house fires in our area, and it’s imperative that fireplace and woodstove chimneys are regularly cleaned to keep you and your family safe. These logs are fantastic for wood-burning fireplaces, but they aren’t for ones that use gas or propane. A word of caution: the most common type of twin wall flue liners are made with 316 grade steel which many manufacturers say is unsuitable for coal.If your woodstove has an angled or horizontal flue, inspect and clean any debris which may collect in it. Note that there are three stages of creosote buildup: Stage 1 is a flaky soot that can be easily brushed away. I usually tell people using one of those logs instead of having your chimney cleaned manually is like chewing Dentyne instead of brushing your teeth,” said Allan Bopp of Bald Eagle Enterprises. When it comes to professional chimney sweeping and inspecting, Vertical Chimney Care is the most trusted company in Chicago and suburbs. After you have used the CSL, it is beneficial to have subsequent wood fires every couple of days for the next one to two weeks.
