Creosote Control Firebricks - If you are burning wood then your chimney flue
may be building up harmful deposits of soot and creosote, the major causes of chimney
fires. Each time you burn wood creosote is being formed. Over time, the creosote
builds up on the flue wall. The Creosote Control Firebricks are made from 100% all
natural wood. Each tightly compressed firebrick contains special chemicals that
help slow build up; helping to prevent chimney fires and extending the time between
This firebrick contains no waxes or oils so they are safe to burn in any wood
burning appliance. Each box contains four firebricks for ease of use. The frequency
of your fires, the type of wood (hard versus soft) and whether the wood is green
or seasoned will determine the frequency with which each piece should be used.
To use the Creosote Control Firebricks, start with a clean flue. If you are unsure
of the condition of your flue, you should have it inspected and cleaned by a certified
chimney sweep. After the morning or evening warm-up burn, load the firebox with
cord wood and add one Creosote Control Firebrick. Burn as usual, a slow burn allows
for a slow release of the chemical additives needed to control creosote buildup.
