The Science Behind Chimney Sweeping
January 9, 2023
When we light a fire, the combustion process releases various substances. Over time, these residues stick to the inner walls of your chimney, forming a dark, tar-like substance known as creosote. This buildup is not only highly flammable but can also cause: Blockages: A clogged chimney doesn't allow smoke to escape properly. This can lead to smoke billowing back into your home, causing potential health hazards. Reduced Efficiency: A dirty chimney can affect the efficiency of your fireplace. With blockages, air can't flow freely, leading to an uneven burn and more smoke production. Increased Wear and Tear: The accumulation of creosote and other residues can corrode the chimney lining, leading to potential structural damage in the long run.
