Chimney Tar Removal

When removing wood creosote we thoroughly  clean the chimney, treat it with creaway chimney tar modifier and then descale with chains after the chemical has been heat activated  and check with a forward facing camera.

Chimney Creosote Removal

When we remove chimney creosote or chimney tar. We first sweep/descale (using chains) the chimney, then we heat the chimney. We then apply a chemical called Creaway-Pro, this chemical changes the composition of the creosote into a removable form, once it has experienced 3 fires of at least 300 degrees celcius, we return a week later and descaling the chimney, removing the remaining creosote.


Cre-Away Pro is a 4 component powder that safely and effectively modifies glazed or third-degree creosote so that it can be more effectively removed by chimney sweeping. First a reactive agent neutralizes the slightly acidic creosote making it less corrosive to metal components and less flammable. Second, a dehydrator absorbs the oils and moisture contained in some forms of creosote. Third, a combustion inhibitor helps reduce the chance of chimney fires. Finally, a magnesium catalyst helps break down third-degree creosote when the flue is heated by normal use.


Apply during the heating season to modify glazed creosote, making it easier to remove. Apply Cre-Away after every cleaning to make any remaining stubborn deposits safer and to neutralize the acidity and odours from the creosote.
