It's Time To Sweep Those Chimneys.
It's Time To Sweep Those Chimneys. With only 6' of 14" Dia pipe to sweep and approx 5' of firebox to sweep (including taper to chimney. I dread the chore yearly. The soot sweeps off with no real resistance.
1. I just need to get over the chore but I still question the need when it seems as a harmless flake vs resistance in the 14" pipe.
- I have tried to ignite some of the debris and it would not.
3. I burned one creosote removing log this past winter. I feel I see layers flaking off before sweeping vs fuzz and lumps that I swept off in the past.
4. Would you agree that build-up is normal and yearly cleaning is not needed if less than 1"?
