What is the burning of soot

Soil burnout is a crisis situation for chimneys and depends on the extent of their burnout. The consequences are different and it is important that the chimney always be checked by an expert after this event. In the case of burning of soot, it means that the heating is in the wrong way, the appliance and the inspection and cleaning of the chimney has been neglected. The sooting of the chimney from the house chimney should take place several times a year.  Once carbon black has been burned, they can not be extinguished. The chimney then cracks or may explode due to a fire. Reluctantly quench carbon black with sand, water is a bad and dangerous option.  When burning soot in a chimney, call a firefighter.
