 How can I reduce the chance of a chimney fire?


Regular examination and thorough cleaning of your chimney is recommended to reduce the chance of a chimney fire and maintain efficiency of your fire or stove. Build-up of creosote and soot on the chimney walls can reduce the draft needed and may cause smoke to come out the fireplace opening or stove door. Creosote is flammable and can fuel a chimney fire. If a fire has occurred, have your chimney thoroughly inspected by our Futureflue professionals before attempting to use it again. Back to Top
