Reasons for keeping your fireplace
A fireplace that is used regularly, needs to be swept
regularly. Every time you light a fire in your
fireplace, soot and ash is drawn up the chimney by the
updraft of smoke. Over the course of time, this soot and
ash builds up inside the chimney, forming black, crumbly
creosote deposits. Build-ups of ash in the chimney
prevents smoke from going up the flue effectively.
For this reason, it’s necessary every now and then to
get your chimney swept.
