REMINDER: The drier your wood is, the better and cleaner it will burn, and the less creosote buildup you will have. Your stove or chimney cleaning needs will not be as frequent, and above all, you will limit yourself and your family to the minimum risk of having a chimney or stove fire. As always, have your fireplace chimney cleaned every 1-2 years depending on cresote buildup.
