Independent test results demonstrate that using the Chimney Cleaning Log CCL can reduce creosote deposits in wood burning stoves and flues. The CCL in a fireplace can render the creosote more brittle and lower volatile organic compounds in the chimney. Subsequent mechanical sweepings are easier, cleaner and more effective.

Whether using an open fire or wood / multi-fuel stove, a brick, lined or stainless steel twin wall chimney, a CCL will help to prevent chimney fires. It even insures you and your home against it.

The chimney cleaning log will burn for around 90 minutes, in which time you can enjoy the warmth of your fireplace
The smoke developed from the chimney cleaning log is charged with additives which attach themselves to the cresote deposits
Next the creosote deposits are reduced, making your next fire safer and less likely to result in a chimney fire
While burning fires over the next 1 to 2 weeks the addiitives from burning the chimney cleaning log will continue to treat your chimney.

It is reccommended that you burn a chimney cleaning log once every 60 fires or as required, such as the start and end of winter (or when your fire is in the most use).

CCL

Creosote

• When wood is burned, the combustion process is never complete. The smoke from a wood fire usually contains a dark brown or black substance which has a smoky odour. This tar like substance is called creosote and is found nearly everywhere in a wood heating system.

• Wood has different characteristics - certain types of wood release more heat than others. Hardwoods such as Oak are denser than softer woods such as pine. Hardwoods will burn longer. Unseasoned 'green' wood will burn with difficulty and produce more creosote.

• Over time, the creosote from wood fires builds up inside your chimney or flue. Creosote is a flammable material which can ignite causing a fire in your chimney.

• The Chimney Cleaning Log contains a mixture of special additives that are dispersed during the process of burning. The additives are released through the smoke and adhere to the creosote.

• Over a period of 2 weeks a chemical reaction will take place and the creosote in your chimney may become brittle and begin to flake away.

• As you continue to burn wood during this 2 week period, the heat from the fires will treat the creosote and may cause the creosote to disperse as a fine powder or break away from the chimney wall and fall back into the firebox in the form of small particles.

• Any remaining creosote is less likely to result in a chimney fire. It is also rendered more brittle, allowing for easier and more effective mechanical removal.

• Regular chimney inspections are always recommended. The Chimney Cleaning Log is not able to tell whether a chimney is blocked or has any kind of structural damage. Therefore The Chimney Cleaning Log does not take the place of inspection or professional cleaning. See additional safety notes in the 'How to Use' section.

• The CCL has been tested by OMNI-test laboratories for its chimney cleaning capabilities
• Use every 60 fires or as needed
• No mess, No tools, No hassle, No chimney fires
• The CCL does not take the place of inspection and professional cleaning by a qualified chimney sweep
• The CCL should not effect manufacturers warranties on stainless steel flue product
