Chimney sweeping in Winchester

Sweeping a particularly tarred up wood burning stove in Winchester this morning, I was reminded to state the importance of firstly burning dry logs, but even more importantly, not slumber burning (shutting your airflow off to contain the fire overnight). Your wood burner should be burning at an optimum temperature of between 150 and 200 degrees Celsius, for a clean safe burn.
