Cre-away Creosote Modifier Application

The Product

Cre-away is a four part component powder that safely and effectively modifies creosote.First a reactive agent neutralizes acidic creosote making it less corrosive to metal components and less flammable.Second, a dehydrator absorbs the oils and moisture contained in the creosote. Third,a combustion inhibitor helps reduce the chance of chimney fires. Finally, a magnesium catalyst helps break down creosote when heated by normal use.

The Application

Cre-Away is appied to the chimney using a professional air pressurized appicator, while a heat treatment starts the cleaning process and ensures coverage throughout the entire chimney flue. Also available for purchase in convenient squeeze bottles at the online store or available for purchase during your service call.
