Creosote is a byproduct of burning wood that tends to collect in chimneys. Chimney cleaning logs, also known as creosote sweeping logs, are touted to help make it easier to remove creosote. But do they actually work?
Performing your own inspection on a chimney, fireplace or stove isn’t exactly difficult, but it’s a messy endeavor that requires a bit of strategy to do properly. It’s also easy to miss warning signs of potential problems that you should ideally head off before they become more costly concerns.
