Well, anytime you burn a fire in your fireplace, ash and corrosive byproducts like creosote are formed. Over time, these corrosive byproducts can settle on the components of the fireplace and along the walls of your chimney flue, and can essentially eat away at the metal or clay tile surfaces. As the chimney liner and fireplace components rust and deteriorate, they eventually reach a point when they can no longer effectively and safely vent the attached appliance. The holes, cracks, and gaps can reduce draft; allow gases, smoke, and other dangerous byproducts to seep into the air supply; and transfer heat from the fire to nearby framing in walls.
Additionally, creosote, which is a flammable byproduct of combustion, can build up, harden, and thicken, decreasing the size of the flue and increasing the chance of house fire. In other words, a dirty chimney and fireplace can be a threat to your health, your safety, and your property — but Sootmaster can help you keep your chimney and fireplace clean and ready to be used, year after year.
