Why do chimneys need to be cleaned?
Burning items like wood or coal can create byproducts like creosote or soot in your fireplace. Creosote condenses on the walls of your chimney when hot gasses meet the flue’s colder surface. This condensed material is highly flammable under the right conditions and can easily turn your chimney into a serious fire hazard. Self-cleaning chimney logs claim to remove this buildup, but many burnings will only remove up to 60% of creosote.
What’s in my chimney?
Soot, creosote, and any flammable debris which has accumulated, such as animal nests or leaves. Protect your home from creosote buildup and schedule an appointment with the chimney sweeping & cleaning experts in Wisconsin.
