Rutland Dry Creosote Remover Chimney Treatment is a powder that homeowners scoop onto beds of hot coals. The product turns the sticky creosote that lines a chimney into a powdery, non-adhering ash. The customer can then sweep this loose material away. Heat of 265 degrees Fahrenheit or more activates the product. Meeco's Red Devil Creosote Destroyer works in a similar manner.

Creosote Sweeping Log is the approximate size and shape of a wooden fireplace log and burns as part of a regular fire. Smoke from the product distributes chemical additives onto creosote deposits, reducing and neutralizing them. The additives continue to treat creosote deposits over the next week or two as new fires burn. The manufacturer recommends burning one log per season if a homeowner uses the fireplace only on weekends or using the product every two months if the fireplace is in continuous use.

Gardus Sooteater Rotary Chimney Cleaning System attaches to a rotary drill and spins to physically remove soot and creosote deposits from the chimney. The tool works on round flues from 5 to 18 inches in diameter and square, rectangle or oval flues up to 12 by 12 inches.
