Fireplace and chimney cleaning is very important in safety and fire prevention. The main reason is that Wood burning fireplaces produce creosote. Fireplace and chimney cleaning is recommended every one or two cords of wood depending if the wood is sappy or non-sappy.
Creosote is a black or brown residue that sticks to the inner walls of chimneys. This build-up It can be tar-like and sticky or it can be hardened, crusty or even flaky. In whatever form it takes, creosote is highly combustible.
How do you prevent creosote from building up? There are a few ways to prevent the buildup:
These added items can greatly increase your chance of a chimney fire. However, the most important act as a homeowner is to have your chimney cleaned and inspected on a regular basis.
Our technicians at Alberta Furnace Cleaning are very experienced in the removal of the creosote deposits. With the powerful truck mount vacuum alongside with the ” Predator ” tool, no creosote stands a chance.
The powerful truck vacuum is carefully placed at the bottom of the fireplace while the Predator is assembled and attached to the airline and sent up your chimney; cleaning all deposits off the sides and sending it down to the vacuum. ( The predator is extendable meaning no fireplace chimney is too large! ) The base is then cleaned and vacuumed leaving you with a clean and safe fireplace as an end result.

As wood burns the residue known as wood-tar creosote is produced. This is a byproduct of the wood sap burning, evaporating and then sticking to a surface. Like any other tar byproduct, it is flammable and toxic.
Over the course of a typical winter season, creosote deposits can become several centimeters thick. Creosote deposits reduce the airflow through the chimney, which increases the probability that the wood fire will not get enough air for complete combustion.
Since creosote is highly combustible, a thick accumulation creates a fire hazard. If a hot fire is built in the stove or fireplace, and the air control left wide open, this may allow hot oxygen into the chimney where it comes in contact with the creosote which then ignites—causing a chimney fire.
