Recently, my wood stove chimney seems to get choked up. I found it's hard to start a fire, so I decided to clean the chimney.
If I don't clean the wood stove chimney regularly, the air suction will be weak and the combustion will be poor. (It means choking and hard to start a fire.)
It may cause a conflagration and must be cleaned properly.
I clean about three times for a season.
And this time, I invented the chimney cleaning tool to make cleaning easier.
It's a very simple tool. I screwed half-cut log on a stick.
Where I need to clean is the horizontal part of the chimney.
When I looked inside, it was quite stuck.
Cleaning was so easy. Jut pushing the soot out of the chimney.
The new tool did great work that I could finish cleaning much quicker than before.
I should have made this cleaning tool earlier.
Now I can have a comfortable and warm wood-stove life again.
