Seasonal Hazard

Posted on: September 23rd, 2012 by Steve No Comments

Why it is important to clean the chimney?
Mainly to prevent chimney fires. Chimney fires are caused by the build-up of flammable creosote in the inner walls of the chimneys. Creosote builds up because of the cooling of  smoke as it  rises up though the chimney,  this can cause the creosote to condense on the inner part of the chimney wall.  Burning dry and seasoned wood, and having an annual  inspection and cleaning of your chimney are the two best methods to avoid chimney fires.
