It is important that every home owner with a fully functioning stove recognises the dangers associated with a lack of attention to deal. After all, fire safety is no laughing matter and should be taken incredibly seriously in order to ensure that everybody living in a property is protected. Here at Denton Stove Centre, we like to emphasise safety to each of our clients and in this blog, we have decided to go over some of the dangers associated with creosote. Read on to find out more…

What Is It?

When we burn carbon-based fuels like coal and wood, the chemicals and soot that are released are dispersed through the chimney, however, some remains behind and clings to the walls of the flue. Over time, a thick tar like substance builds up and this is known as creosote.

Toxic Gases

The problem with creosote is that it can cause deadly carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. This happens when the material is left to build up inside the flue for a considerable amount of time and starts to narrow the tube. As a result, the toxic gases are unable to be release outside of the property which means that they linger inside. In fact, carbon monoxide is one of the most dangerous gases a person can come across because it is odourless, tasteless and colourless. This means that it is virtually undetectable until people start to exhibit symptoms like nausea, headaches, confusion and dizziness. Luckily, a carbon monoxide detector can alert homeowners to the presence of the gas early on which is why they are essential in every property.

Safety Risk

Another risk that comes with creosote build-up is perhaps the most life threatening. After all, it is an extremely flammable material, a simple spark can start a dangerous chimney fire which puts lives at risk and causes irreparable damage to the property in the process. Thankfully, annual chimney sweeping will ensure that creosote isn’t able to build up to such dangerous levels and thus, can help prevent a chimney fire from happening in the process.

When it comes to fire safety, it is incredibly important to stay on top of creosote build-up.  Thankfully, this can be taken care off through an investment in annual chimney sweeping, which aims to dislodge the materials before it can cause any nasty repercussions like respiratory health problems or a fatal chimney fire. With the right care and attention to detail, the team here at Denton Stove Centre believe that a stove can be the perfect addition to any property.
