Cre-Away by SaverSystems

A powerful creosote remover

The Problem- Glazed Creosote

Creosote and soot build-up in your fireplace or wood stove chimney can be a fire hazard if your chimney system is not properly cleaned and maintained. Occasionally wood stoves and fireplaces can produce a tar or glaze called third-degree creosote.

Third-degree creosote is nearly impossible to remove by regular sweeping. Many times a chimney professional may be able to determine the cause of this hazardous build-up and recommend solutions to prevent this potentially dangerous form of creosote from reoccurring.

Removing Glazed Creosote

Removing glazed creosote by normal chimney sweeping is nearly impossible; however, there are several methods available to chimney sweeps. One involves the use of caustic chemicals, another, a special rotary cleaning device. Both methods are typically time consuming and expensive. But Cre-Away chemically modifies third-degree creosote by changing it to a substance that can be more easily removed by normal chimney sweeping methods.

The time it takes to chemically modify third-degree creosote with Cre-Away will depend on many variables such as:

  • Type Of Wood
  • Moisture Content
  • Burning Habits
  • Air Flow
  • Flue Size
  • Amount Of Existing Build-up

In some cases reaction time is fairly fast, within a week or two. Other more difficult build-up problems may require regular use and multiple cleanings during the heating season to completely modify the existing third-degree creosote.

Cre-Away is a four component powder that safely and effectively modifies glazed or third-degree creosote so that it can be more easily removed by chimney sweeping.

  • A reactive agent neutralizes the slightly acidic creosote making it less corrosive to metal components and less flammable.
  • A dehydrator absorbs the oils and moisture contained in some forms of creosote.
  • A combustion inhibitor helps reduce the chance of chimney fires.
  • A magnesium catalyst helps break down third-degree creosote when the flue is heated by normal use.

The Net Effect

Cre-Away modifies third-degree creosote by converting it into a more brittle state that has a different expansion/contraction rate then the flue it is attached to.

During heat and cooling cycles the treated creosote loses its adhesive properties so it can be more easily removed.
