Creosote Buildup

Do you need chimney creosote removal? Creosote is not something you want in your chimney, but it’s likely something you have in your chimney. This corrosive and flammable substance is created when fuel is burned incompletely. Then, byproducts of combustion settle on the flue walls as the flue cools.

Not all creosote is the same. In fact, there are three different levels of creosote, each differing in texture. Level one is somewhat velvet-like in texture. Level two is flaky in texture. The third level is hard and shiny, like a glaze. Because of the difference in texture, level one and level two creosote is much easier to remove. However, level three can be very difficult. But no matter what level we find in your chimney, we have the tools to effectively remove any creosote.


Anti-Creo-Soot — The Spray That Takes Creosote Away

Here at Sootaway, we’re big fans of ACS (Anti-Creo-Soot) chimney creosote remover. It is a non-toxic product that can be sprayed onto the creosote-glazed surface to make chimney creosote removal easier. The product also reduces the odor and air pollution that can come with other methods of creosote removal.

For more than 30 years, ACS has been trusted to get the job done.

Here’s how it works:

  • The ACS product is sprayed onto the creosote.
  • Upon contact, ACS works to modify the makeup of the creosote, making it much easier to clean.
  • Once the creosote is modified, we use our sweeping tools and brushes to remove it.
