Why Do You Need BOTH a Chimney Inspection AND Cleaning?
Annual chimney and fireplace inspections are as important as having a chimney sweep. Chimneys, like the rest of our homes, develop issues from use and exposure to the elements. Chimney flue liners and hearths may have changed since they were originally installed. These changes can lead to a fireplace smoking into the home and causing dangerous indoor conditions.
Your Chimney Inspector Offers 3 levels of Inspection
Full Service Chimney Certified Chimney Inspectors offer three levels of inspections, providing homeowners the necessary chimney service depending on their level of need. If a chimney inspection reveals a repair is needed, then your Full Service Chimney sweep offers options for chimney repairs, depending on how the fireplace will be used.
Stay Cozy & Warm with Annual Chimney Inspection:
Most homeowners are aware that the condition of a fireplace chimney system is just as important as whether or not it’s clean.
Why? Because the risk of using a masonry fireplace or gas chimney flue without knowing its safe is unnecessary!
Full Service Chimney provides the proper inspection with every chimney sweeping visit.
When called to evaluate a chimney liner or gas chimney, we discuss with you how you're enjoying the fireplace and your plans for the venting system. Then, using a multipoint process, covering the various parts of the chimney system, we evaluate and take photos. Depending on the level of inspection warranted, the appropriate Level of inspection is performed.
Choose Full Service Chimney for Certified Chimney Inspectors
It is important for the chimney inspector to understand the anatomy of a chimney. If the system isn’t suspected of problems and is used in the same fashion as before, a Level I chimney inspection may be the degree of evaluation needed.
A Level II is our most common level chimney Inspection. However, say you're interested in changing your fireplace. Converting wood to a gas fireplace is a common fireplace remodeling project. The Level 2 Chimney Inspection is appropriate. If after a Level II chimney inspection, it is discovered that an unsafe condition may exist in a concealed area, we will suggest a Level III chimney inspection.
Talk to your Certified Chimney Inspector about the type of chimney care that fits your fireplace hearth best.
- Level 1 Chimney Inspection: the chimney and fireplace are checked for blockages and the really accessible portions of the system. And gives the hearth area a fireplace inspection.
- Level 2 Chimney Inspection: accessible areas of the basement, attic, and roof are often the places our Certified Chimney inspector will visit. It includes a video inspection of the chimney flue liner, to ensure the condition of the chimney flue liner is in serviceable condition. When warranted, they can also perform a U.V. hearth of fireplace evaluation and chases, making sure fire stays in its place.
- Level 3 Chimney Inspection of a fireplace/chimney would dictate the removal of concealing material and determining the condition of otherwise unseen portions of the system.
