The Damaging Effects Of Creosote

Creosote poses a wide range of threats to your chimney system. The substance itself will cause your brickwork and chimney parts to wear down and deteriorate, and when left unaddressed, you’ll also notice some bad odors sweeping into your living space. This makes your living situation both uncomfortable and unsafe.

The bigger issue lies with creosotes flammable nature, which increases your likelihood of experiencing a chimney fire. Whether your creosote is flaky, tar-like, or glazed, it poses a threat and the more you have of it, the higher your risk of experiencing further damage. After a chimney fire has occurred, your system should not be used until a sweep can assess the situation and suggest the best actions to take moving forward.

Those who have experienced a chimney fire leave themselves more vulnerable to other dangerous situations, such as gas leaks, carbon monoxide exposure, and house fires. The chimney fire itself will have weakened the structure significantly, thus leaving weak spots and various pathways for flames and harmful fumes to escape.

Unfortunately, most chimney fires are fairly quiet in nature, so it’s very possible to have experienced one without even realizing it. In these cases, the homeowner will continue to light fires, not knowing that they’re facing some big risks by doing so. This is a big reason why investing in regular inspections and sweepings is so vital!
