Sometimes we get questions regarding sweeping of the chimney and in this connection we asked Fred Ekberg at the fire and rescue service, fire preventing department in Oslo, for a chat. The chimney sweep sweeps and cleans chimneys, smoke ducts, flue pipes and fireplaces in order to prevent soot fires and gas emissions. The chimney sweep also has special skills regarding fire prevention work and they work closely with the fire department. In addition, the chimney sweep informs about the correct burning techniques.
A wood stove is never better than the wood that is burned in it. Wood types act a bit different – some smoulder and turn into big pieces of charcoal, others burn quickly and intensly, but the common factor is that the wood must be as dry as possible. This provides the best heat and easiest lighting, and makes it much easier to burn wood in an environmentally consious way.
