Little job for a Sunday. Cutting spare stove bricks from vermiculite board. I usually have a couple of sheets in the van so I can cut them as I go. :-) I can also supply you with a sheet so you can cut your own when needed saving you a little bit of money :-)

This looks awful! But it is actually compacted soot from burning smokeless fuel which has built up in the flexible liner over the year. This can only be removed with specialist sweeping equipment before it becomes so thick the only option is a new liner. Fortunately I carry this equipment with me and an inspection camera to make sure the liner has been cleaned as best as possible. :-)

This chimney is over 300 years old and still functioning perfectly. However, due to its age I swept it carefully with my large mole brush. Designed to be gentle on those older chimney but still clean it effectively :-)

Another ventilator fitted on a chimney serving a multi fuel stove. Fortunately it had only just been fitted and the customer hadn't started using the stove. I replaced it with one of my stainless steel birdguards. :-)

Application of CreAway professional creosote modifier today on heavy glazed creosote. It needs to work for a couple of weeks to activate and then be removed with rotary power sweeping equipment :-)

Burning wood on your wood burner or multifuel stove? If so, you need to make sure any wood burned has a moisture content less than 20% and is free from Paint, Creosote any glues or man made chemicals. Worktop does not count as an approved fuel! And burning this could effect the warranty of your stove or chimney liner. A good way to ensure you get the best from your appliance is to properly dry any wood you buy or buy kiln dried wood or compressed logs which both have a very low moisture content :-)
