Over time, your chimney can get covered with soot, dust, and dirt without proper inspection and cleaning. We provide thorough inspections of your chimney that will let us know whether or not you need cleaning services. Even if you clean your chimney regularly, it’s still important to have a professional inspect on it once a year to make sure there are no hidden problems.

We conduct routine inspections to identify potential problems that may affect the performance of your fireplace or stove. All you have to do is schedule an appointment with our professionals today. Once we have inspected the fireplace, we will assess its current condition and recommend the best course of action for its care.

In order to conduct a thorough inspection, we will climb onto the roof and use industry-leading equipment to scan your chimney. We will also inspect the interior of your fireplace to identify any issues that might be hidden from view.

Three things to know about chimney inspection

If you have a masonry chimney that is used with a wood burning stove, or if you have a masonry fireplace that is used to burn wood, there are some things that you need to know about chimney inspections.

  • The first thing that you need to know is that your chimney is not indestructible. Chimneys do wear out over time and can be damaged in accidents. If your chimney is damaged and it has not been repaired, it could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • The second thing you should know about chimney inspection is that they are relatively inexpensive and can prevent a lot of expensive repairs down the road.
  • The third thing to know about chimney inspection is how often they should be done. If you use your fireplace or wood burning stove frequently, then an inspection should be done every two years. If you don’t use your fireplace or stove much, then an inspection every five years will be adequate.
If you have a cracked chimney liner, you may not realize that it poses a serious fire danger. The primary purpose of a chimney liner is to protect the surrounding walls of your home from coming into direct contact with the fire and smoke. As the fireplace becomes hot during use, so does the liner. This can result in damage to the flue walls if they come in contact with high temperatures, which is why they should be inspected annually.
