Chimney Sweeping is a vital job for the continued running, safety and efficiency of your Log burning fire, as a fire burns in a fireplace, the air from the room goes through the grate and fuels the fire.
As the fire burns, it releases numerous gases which rise, as they are lighter than the surrounding air. These gases then escape up the chimney and are released into the atmosphere. As these substances pass through the chimney, a substance commonly referred to as soot begins to accumulate on the walls. This includes a flammable substance called creosote.
Over time, these deposits can begin to obstruct – and eventually completely block – the chimney. Such an obstruction can lead to an inefficient, and potentially unsafe, fireplace.
