Chimney Inspection

Chimney Inspection

Protect your family by inspecting your chimney flue once a year. A chimney inspection and cleaning will find any potential problems or blockages. Cleaning the creosote out of a flue will help your fireplace be more efficient and prevent a fire in the chimney which could spread to the home. The heat from a chimney fire will cause damage to the flue liners and allow gas to get inside the home. Cleaning the chimney with a hard brush will remove the build up of debris and keep your chimney safe and healthy.

Your chimney system(s) are an important part of your home heating system. The National Fire Protection Agency and Manufacturer recommends an annual chimney cleaning of all chimney(s) by a reputable, experienced qualified Chimney Sweep. Chimney system(s) cleaning should be a regular part of your home maintenance schedule. If the appliance has a catalytic converter, it should be checked and cleaned a minimum of twice a year, once before the first burn and once after the last burn.
