The Chimney Cleaning log is one of our biggest selling chimney cleaning products.
How it Works: Creosote (tar) is a flammable material which can ignite causing a fire in your chimney. The Chimney Cleaning Log contains a mixture of special additives that are dispersed during the process of burning. The additives are released through the smoke and adhere to the creosote. Over a period of 2 weeks a chemical reaction will take place and the creosote in your chimney may become brittle and begin to flake away. As you continue to burn wood during this 2 week period, the heat from the fires will treat the creosote and may cause the creosote to disperse as a fine powder or break away from the chimney wall and fall back into the firebox in the form of small particles. Any remaining creosote is less likely to result in a chimney fire. It is also rendered more brittle, allowing for easier and more effective mechanical removal.
Chimney safety is paramount if you use your fireplace or have a stove so make sure that it is kept clean all year round to prevent chimney fires.
