What causes soot?

SOOT is a dark brown granular material which can result from burning off the creosote or from burning foreign materials in the stove's firebox with the by-pass closed, such as paper and cardboard.
It can be removed by gently brushing with a clean, soft bristled brush or using a low suction appliance, like a vacuum cleaner.
See cleaning for other options. 6-10-09

Do not use high pressure air to clean fly ash from the combustor. Deposits within the combustor cells can be carefully cleaned with a cotton swab or pipe cleaner.
