The substance that is pictured below is called creosote. This substance can burn at temperatures up to 3000 degrees Fahrenheit and can have the same ignition temperature as a piece of paper.
Why Chimney Cleaning?
The chimney flue is the passageway for toxic gases to escape out of your home. Cracks, holes or obstructions in a chimney flue can cause dangerous carbon monoxide fumes, or soot, to leak into your home. This is why the National Fire Protection Association recommends that oil, gas and solid fuel burning chimney flues are inspected yearly to insure proper draft, venting of soot & fumes, and to guarantee that there is not an obstruction in the flue.
The National Fire Protection Code 211 requires an annual safety inspection of all chimney systems. Here’s why: In a wood-burning system, incomplete combustion results in unburned residue which rises in the chimney as part of the smoke. This residue called creosote is deposited on the inside of the chimney walls, presenting a major fire hazard to the home.
A clean chimney is a safe chimney! Here at Sky HVAC we take pride in every job, big or small and with you the customer in mind. When it comes to chimney cleaning or doing repairs in your home we always wear shoe covers and lay down drop cloths so no mess is left behind.
