Check your chimneys

June 30

With winter officially here, the CFA is urging all Victorians to keep themselves safe by checking and maintaining their fireplace, chimneys, fireboxes & flues.  Over time, there can be a build-up of creosote, a black tar-like residue, which is highly flammable & can clog chimneys.  To reduce the risk of fire starting from your fireplace or wood heater you should:-

  • Use a torch to check for creosote build up, or other obstructions
  • Have your chimney professionally cleaned annually
  • Only burn dry, clean wood (never green wood or treated timbers)
  • Extinguish your fire before going to bed or leaving the house.
