We Provide Thorough, Informative Chim-Scan Chimney Inspections

Wood-Insert

It’s not easy to see the interior of the chimney, and you know the old saying: “Out of sight, out of mind”. But when it comes to chimneys, assumptions and neglect can be seriously harmful. That’s why the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) urge homeowners to have their chimneys professionally inspected each and every year. Whether you use your chimney regularly or not, keeping up with inspections can help keep you protected from water damage, house fires, and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Here at Your Chimney Sweep, we closely follow the NFPA’s guidelines for the 3 levels of inspections, so you can be confident when we’re in your home. Our goal is to always provide the most accurate and informative inspections so our customers can enjoy their hearths without unnecessary risk or fire threat. That’s why we use Chim-Scan video technology during all of our open fireplace inspections! This allows us to get an up close look at your flue, from top to bottom, so there’s no guesswork or assumptions involved.

The NFPA’s 3 Levels Of Inspections

Here’s a little bit about the 3 levels of inspections and when you’ll need to have each level performed:

Level 1 Inspection – Level 1 Inspections are the most basic inspections, and are recommended for chimneys and fireplaces that haven’t seen any change or issues. If your system is working like usual and you intend to continue using it as usual, a Level 1 should suffice. We’ll take a look at all easily accessible parts of the chimney and fireplace and check for blockages in the flue.

Level 2 Inspection – Level 2 Inspections are a little more involved, and are recommended when changing the fuel type, appliance type, or flue liner. These are also recommended when the home is transferring hands, or when a problem or change has occurred with the chimney or appliance.

Level 3 Inspection – Level 3 Inspections are less common, and are really only needed when a Level 2 inspection isn’t able to resolve or identify the root of the problem. These inspections involve the removal of portions of the chimney and surrounding areas, so we’ll never perform a Level 3 without first discussing it with the homeowner.

During all of our inspections, we’ll use Chim-Scan video technology to evaluate every accessible part of the system and get a closer look at everything.
