Creosote Sweeping Log (CSL) - Does it work?


So if I want to DIY cleaning my chimney I'm curious if anyone has any thoughts on whether these things actually do anything and are worth it. They can readily be found at Home Depot, Lowes, and the like for about $15 a log! Some in the industry will say they absolutely don't work...after all ....they'd be giving up business. But one more down to earth chimney service dude did recommend them. Here's a link below. I'm inclined to think they do help somewhat...but am made sceptical a bit as they come from the same source as none other than Chia Pets and The Clapper....no joke!!

They are not a substitute for regular chimney sweeping they help keep the build up down but are in no way a replacement for giving your chimney a regular sweep a few times a year. Also only burn well seasoned wood in it.
