Dumb question: why do you need to clean a chimney every month?

I guess I should have asked "What causes a chimney to get a creosote build up within a month"? Around here people burn hardwoods, shelled corn, and wood pellets as well as propane and natural gas. Chimneys don't seem to get very dirty and rarely need cleaning more than once a year. Do different fire woods (like pine) create more creosote than hardwoods?

Heating with wood isn't the same as with gas, oil or pellets.

I use an automatic airtight wood stove. If I burn it hot all the time there wouldn't be a problem, but I simmer it down overnight & that causes creosote build up.

I use all hardwood that has been cut, split & stored in my woodshed at least 2 years. I try to let it go down to coals over night most of the time.

I could go maybe 2 months before cleaning but never had a problem this way.

I have witnessed too many who either don't clean their chimney regularly or never clean it!

Simple answer, Prevent chimney fires!

Clean once a month U won't have one!

If U ever witness one you'll never forget it!
I've been a volunteer fireman for several years & saw the damage this would cause.
