Why do I have creosote in my chimney?
Due to appliance differences, there may be other reasons why creosote is building in your chimney. Ensure you are always following the manufacturer’s guidance for your appliance. If you’re burning responsibly but still experiencing a significant build-up of creosote in your chimney, contact your local HETAS Approved Servicing Technician to arrange and inspection.
How to remove creosote
Creosote gets progressively more difficult to remove as the degree of build-up increases. It is highly advisable to book a chimney sweep to remove creosote deposits in your chimney – they will have the experience, knowledge, and equipment required to successfully eliminate creosote deposits from your chimney.
Your HETAS Approved chimney sweep will use a range of tools, from power sweeping whips to chemical removal kits, to eliminate creosote deposits in your chimney, helping you keep burning cleanly and safely.
Without these tools it is unlikely that you will successfully remove stubborn creosote deposits; your chimney sweep will be able to tackle deposits with much more success than if you attempt to remove creosote yourself.
