How to use our chimney & flue cleaner
- Make a good hot fire and allow it to die down to hot coals.
- Adjust unit, if possible, so airflow is travelling up the flue slowly.
- Place sealed sachet of Soot-Loose on the hot coals (no need to cut sachet open, as packet will burn during process). If using a tin: Place 2 heaped tablespoons on the hot coals.
- After 15-20 minutes, the process is complete.
- Re-ignite the fire to allow any loose soot remaining in the flue to be flushed out.
- CAUTION – In the case of an open fireplace: Place a guard in front of the fireplace to protect any persons, floor coverings or furniture, as hot soot may fall from the chimney/flue back into and around the hearth.
- If the chimney/flue is heavily sooted, use 2 sachets of Soot-Loose in a single application.
- When using your heating unit regularly, Soot-Loose should be used once per week.
A yearly inspection of your chimney/flue by a professional is recommended.
