there’s a word for everything

Posted in: General

And today’s new word is ‘creosote’.
It’s the nasty tarry build-up that accumulates on the inside of a chimney.
I think my chimney needs cleaning. Sigh.
I wonder if there’s a word to describe the process of cleaning a chimney that’s lost its outlet through the roofline – as mine has.
Knowing my luck, the only appropriate word will be ‘messy’. Big sigh.
