Is your fireplace smelly or do you experience a lot of smoke when using it? If so, your chimney may be filled with a large amount of creosote buildup. This sticky, tar-like substance is the combustible byproduct of the burning process. If left untreated, a creosote-filled flue can be plagued with smoky, stinky fires and may even lead to a chimney fire. While you may not be able to avoid all creosote buildup there are ways to lessen the amount that forms in the flue.
Avoiding these bad habits will help keep your chimney’s flue in proper working order. Another way to enjoy a safe, smoke-free fire is by having your chimney cleaned annually by a certified sweep. Lindemann Chimney Service has been offering professional chimney cleanings and inspections since 1969. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
