Creosote Removers for the Chimney
It is important not to let creosote build up in your firebox or chimney. If you find there is creosote that is not removed with chimney cleaning, you can use any of the sprays below to chemically change the creosote glaze to a powder that can be brushed off with your next chimney cleaning.
Simply spray all the wood before you burn it and that's all there is to it. Use up the whole bottle and have your chimney cleaned again. The area should now be free of creosote. In heavy built up flues, continue to use the spray...it will eventually all come off. We love these products and recommend to our customers every day.

Regulate the pressure to about 20 p.s.i. and blast the Cre-Away Pro up the flue until it is thoroughly coated.
This is a great product for easily removing creosote. Here's how it works: Just use the Cre-Away Applicator to by simply attaching the applicator to compressed air. The powder will nicely coat the inside of the flue. Continue burning your fireplace or appliance, then have your chimney brushed several weeks later. The creosote will have turned to an ash like substance that can easily be swept away. That's it. Try it for yourself. We use it!
Gas logs are designed to not burn clean. In order to get that yellow flame, the gas logs limit the oxygen. This may lead to unsightly soot accumulation. ACS pints are designed to remove this accumulation. Just spray in on a hot fire, that's all there is to it. Note: not recommended for white logs!
