Sooty Deposits Above Gas Fireplace

Question: I have sooty deposits on the brickwork above my gas fireplace. Is this a problem?

Answer: Sooty deposits on the brickwork above your gas fireplace is an indication that the gas is not being burned properly. It is most likely a problem with the amount of air being mixed with the gas in order to obtain combustion. You should have the gas fireplace inspected and serviced immediately!
