Creosote

We’re very thorough. In an inspection, we’ll check every part of your chimney to see if there’s been any buildup of soot or creosote. Creosote is a highly combustible material that can form inside your flue or chimney. Creosote exists in three stages:In the first stage, it’s a fine black dust–commonly referred to as soot. In the second stage, it’s a porous, crunchy material, that can’t be brushed away, but is still removable. In the third stage, it’s a tar that hardens into a rock-like glaze. This form of creosote is a concentrated fuel that is very difficult to remove.
