Creosote Build-up, the Hidden Danger in Fireplaces
Burning wood, no matter how you do it, releases pollutants, mainly in the form of gases and particulate matter. We call this matter creosote. Creosote is a gummy, foul smelling, corrosive and extremely combustible substance that, if no precaution are taken, will coat the insides of chimney’s. It is formed when volatile gases given off in the wood burning process combine and condense on their way up the chimney.
Creosote build up takes several forms, all bad. As a liquid, it can run down the insides of pipes and chimneys, oozing out of any openings. It can form a hard layer coating the insides of pipes and chimney liners. Creosote is also the cause of most chimney fires. Chimneys and pipes should always be cleaned and inspected annually.
Creosote Build Up Is Rated By Stages: 1, 2 & 3.
Stage 1: Build up is considered normal accumulation for a season of regular use and can usually be removed during a annual sweep.
Stage 2: Advanced accumulation of creosote and could require a single treatment.
Stage 3: Creosote build up is dangerously excessive and must be addressed due to the high risk of a chimney fire.
Stage three, shiny buildup requires aggressive treatment including several applications of a solution designed to break it up slowly layer by layer. During an inspection the tech will rate the build up in your fireplace and reflect it on the inspection form along with any recommendations for treatment if necessary.
