Creosote is a natural by-product of woodburning, primarily due to
incomplete combustion. A sticky dust-like residue, creosote is vented through the chimney
along with smoke and other gases. It sticks to the walls of the flue and can build up to a
dangerous level. Creosote is highly flammable and can be ignited by something as simple as
burning a few pieces of paper. This is commonly referred to as a chimney fire or flue fire
and can spread quickly to the rest of your home.
Although the purpose of cleaning a chimney is to remove creosote, of even
greater importance is a thorough safety inspection. At ChimPro, the entire chimney is
inspected using our 36 point process. A complete written report is generated explaining
the condition of critical components, observations
regarding usage, and suggestions for improving the safe, efficient operation of the entire
Our "No Soot" cleaning process guarantees a neat job and is
accomplished using the highest quality equipment available including dustless vaccuum
systems, a wide range of brush sizes to fit every flue, and heavy duty safety equipment.
