    Plan to have inspection and cleaning done yearly. Would it be a good idea for us to clean chimney periodically also? Do you have to remove the baffle to clean chimney? We have some chimney sweeping logs. Are these better to use at end of season? We burn 24-7.

    CSL's are only good for glazed cresote. If you have a slip joint in your interior chimney pipe, slip it up and tape a plastic bag on, then you wont sweep all the cresote in your stove.

    Is a slip joint the same as a telescoping length of stove pipe? We do have that. Good idea. Thanks.

    Yep, telescopes work the same way. When the pipe is up, also take your vac and clean the top of the baffle if you have one. Good luck! One more thing, if your baffle is a material other then metal, be careful, it can be fragile.
