Creosote build-up in your chimney can cause your fireplace to burn inefficiently and eventually lead to devastating chimney fires. If you own an airtight wood-burning stove or a fireplace insert, cleaning your chimney once a month when your fireplace is in use is vital. Using this Flue-Renew chimney cleaner log is the easy way to keep your chimney clean. Simply add this log to your usual fire, and it will turn the creosote into a fine powder that can easily be brushed away. Keep a few of these Flue-Renew chimney cleaning logs in storage so you will be ready to maintain your chimney during the peak season.

Do you have to start with a clean chimney to use this log or will this log clean the chimney as it burns?
By eFireplaceStore on February 10, 2015
This log is intended to help clean a dirty chimney by converting tar like creosote to a light and brushable ash. The idea is to burn one of these logs a day or two before having you chimney swept. It will not clean the chimney on its own, but will make sweeping it more effective.

Should the woodstove damper be left open or closed down while burning a Flue-Renew Firelog?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 22, 2013
The damper should be opened while burning the Flue-Renew log, as its purpose is to clean out the stovepipe and chimney pipe. This is achieved by turning the creosote into a fine powder.
