We have been attending a property in Tinwell to sort out a chimney that has not been swept in 15 years. Due to the unseasoned wood being burned it has built up a significant amount of tar and creasote.
The client wants to have a new woodburning stove installed but because of the build up it is not safe to line the chimney until we remove the tar. If left there is a high chance of heat transfer causing a chimney fire.
The chimney has had 3 treatments so far using a mixture of Pro care G-C-P and Cre-away. Unfortunately due to the severity of the tar build up we are still not quite ready for lining and we need to run another course of treatment.
Don’t wait until it’s too late, get your chimney swept by a professional chimney sweep.
