Did you know that a build-up of creosote can not only hinder the efficiency of your chimney or flue, it can also be a fire hazard?
Build-up on the smoke shelf of an open fireplace of the chimney can combust by a spark causing an uncontrolled fire. Alternatively if you have a wood burning stove – insert or freestanding, a build-up of soot and creosote in the flue can cause the same fire hazard.
Blockages such as birds/nests and creosote also prevent the flue / chimney from drawing efficiently which in turn can fill your room with smoke.
