How to clean creasote

sara25July 18, 2014

Hi all,
I recently removed an insert from my fireplace and there is a lot of creosote in the firebox. Any suggestions on how I can clean it up?
Thanks

At our last house we bought a 5 hp wet/dry vac and an additional length of hose that allowed placement of the vac outside when vacuuming the fireplace. Too far to the door to do that here so we bought a smaller vac with a HEPA filter.
