Tips for Maintaining Your Chimney

  • Burn hot fires. Keeping your fires well stoked while they burn is a good way to reduce creosote & chemical buildup in your chimney. Hot, blazing fires will burn more cleanly and emit fewer chemicals.
  • Sweep out your ashes. Sweep out your fireplace frequently to prevent large piles of old ash and dust. This will provide for cleaner fires and an overall better chimney experience.
  • Inspect your chimney for obvious faults and damage. Look at your brick lining from the outside to see if any cracks, loose bricks, or discoloring has occurred. Any one of these would be hazardous, and warrants professional intervention.
  • Make sure your flue is operating properly. Test your flue mechanism and verify that it opens and closes without issue.
