If you have a fireplace, wood burning stove or insert, you most likely have creosote buildup in your chimney. As wood burns, the combustion process produces solid byproducts that build up in your chimney or flue pipe as a black, sticky layer that is highly combustible. Without regular maintenance this combustible material "creosote " will eventually block the flue preventing proper drafting and may even cause a chimney fire. All chimneys that connect to appliances that burn fuel and are vented to the outdoors are required by National Fire Protection Association code 211 to be inspected annually and cleaned when needed. This is a recognized national standard.
