Soot and creosote build ups in the chimney flue can cause chimney fires, it also reduces the efficiency of the fire and can cause a fire to smoke. It is recommended that your fire be inspected and swept every year.

Tip: Burning wet or unseasoned wood can increase the creosote and soot build up, fully open the damper every time you add wood and leave it open until the wood is well alight (around 20 minutes)
