In line with our chimney sweep services, here are some important tips from Safeguard Chimney, Roof and Gutter the professional in chimney care and maintenance.

Tips on how to avoid chimney fires:

Creosote is the main cause of chimney fires. A build of creosote is highly combustible and can result in a chimney fire. Here are tips to minimize creosote:

Perform efficient burning techniques such as the following:

    • The key is to burn small, hot fires, using hardwood, such as Oak and Cherry. This will minimize creosote accumulation and maximize heat production.
    • Keep fires burning hot with flames, not smoldering with a lot of smoke. Be careful not to add too much firewood.
    • In a fireplace, keep the flames visible below the fireplace opening. In a woodstove, keep the flames confined to the woodstove itself.
    • With glass doors, keep the doors wide open with the screen closed for a good half an hour after starting the fire. When you see the fire is burning well, close the doors and set any draft controls. It's better to add smaller loads more often than to cram in a lot of wood trying to get an all-day burn.
    • When you're ready to put a fire out, separate the logs by moving them to the side of the fireplace or stand them on the end in the back of the fireplace. Close the screen and/or the glass doors tightly, and close the damper once the fire is completely out.

Valuable Troubleshooting Hints: Smoke Problems

    • Is your damper open? If it is and the smoking continues, open a nearby window a crack for a minute or two until the fire is going well.
    • Prior to starting the fire warm the chimney by holding a piece of burning rolled-up newspaper in the (opened) damper region for 10-15 seconds.
    • If the chimney, continues to smoke call Safeguard Chimney, Roof and Gutter . Your chimney may be clogged by animal nests or accumulation of creosote or it may have additional problems.

Chimney odors:

    • The sour, sickly odor is the usual smell of creosote. The solution is to call Safeguard Chimney, Roof and Gutter  to safely clean your chimney and install a flue cap/spark arrestor to prevent water from entering and reacting with the creosote. Safeguard Chimney, Roof and Gutter  can also recommend a good chimney deodorant to handle any remaining odor which has been absorbed into the masonry.
