Your chimney plays a vital role in keeping your home and family safe. Its primary purpose is to make sure smoke and exhaust go out the stack, so it doesn’t spread to other parts of your home. That’s why Advanced Chimney Sweep, along with the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends homeowners have an annual chimney inspection.
And since our Certified Chimney Professionals follow industry-standard guidelines established by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), you have peace of mind knowing that you are getting an accurate and reliable assessment of the current condition of your chimney and attached solid or liquid fuel appliances.
A level 1 inspection is a standard visual examination of all accessible areas of the interior and exterior sections of the chimney, flue, and attached heating appliances.
A level 2 is an advanced inspection that includes a Level 1 inspection, plus a video scan of the internal surfaces and joints inside your chimney. Visual inspection in the attic of the chimney is also performed. It is required whenever there have been any changes or damages to the chimney or heating appliance. A level 2 inspection is also needed during the sale or transfer of a home, which is why it is often referred to as a Real Estate Chimney Inspection.
This is a detailed interior and exterior examination that includes everything in a Level 1 and Level 2, plus removing sections of the structure to gain access to inaccessible portions of the chimney. A level 3 inspection is required when a level 1 or level 2 inspection reveals the existence of a potentially severe issue or hazard.
The Chimney Sweep will provide you with a complete inspection report and will let you know if your chimney needs cleaning or repairs, so you don’t waste money on services you don’t need.
Every year fire departments all across the country respond to thousands of chimney fires that were primarily caused by unsafe chimney systems. Causes of chimney fires include excessive accumulation of creosote in the chimney which can be very flammable or deficiencies in your chimney lining that can allow sparks or flames to reach combustible areas near your chimney. Having a professional chimney sweep clean your chimney and fireplace is the best way to prevent chimney fires and exposure to carbon monoxide.
For your convenience, we can schedule a chimney inspection and chimney cleaning on the same appointment. Our Certified Chimney Professionals will arrive in a marked vehicle and bring their professional tools, equipment, and supplies. They will leave the work area and your chimney completely clean.
Your Certified Chimney Sweep will let you know if your chimney inspection reveals that your chimney, fireplace or stove needs any repairs. We are often able to spot minor issues so you can have them repaired before they grow into more dangerous and costly repairs.
