Chimney Inspection Service

Regular chimney inspections are an important preventative measure. Chimneys are inspected and documented by our experts from top to bottom, inside and out. It’s important to fix even the smallest issues, since they may have a significant impact on the system’s reliability and lifespan.

Regardless of how often you use your chimney system, it is suggested that you get it examined for safety once a year at the very least. The most common cause of damage to chimneys is the intrusion of water, which may take place at any moment and lead to hazardous situations. We provide inspection reports not just for house inspectors and new homeowners but also for condo and homeowner organizations.

What seems like a minor problem right now might end up requiring a major fix in the future. We may be able to perform same-day chimney cleaning services if required.

Why Should You Get Your Chimney Inspected Every Year?

During the warmer months, we hardly give our chimneys a second thought, but during the winter season, they are invaluable. Inspecting your chimney once a year can help you feel confident about lighting your first fire of the season. Some of the most important reasons for scheduling annual inspections are as follows:

One of the most important reasons for getting your chimney examined is to help avoid a fire. Creosote, a highly combustible material that starts to attach to the chimney walls over time, is the primary cause of chimney fires. If this is not addressed promptly, it may be highly harmful. This residue will be removed from the chimney walls by a thorough washing.

Squirrels, birds, and racoons all like to hide and nest in dark, secure locations, and chimneys suit the bill wonderfully. Although this is a positive thing for them, it is a significant disadvantage for you. These creatures may cause a slew of problems for your chimney. Because of the habitats they build within, the chimney is unable to exhaust correctly, which might lead to a blockage. A chimney check will assist in identifying and perhaps removing nests.

Carbon monoxide may pose a significant health risk. It is critical to not only install CO2 detectors within your house, but also to have a chimney inspected by an expert who will look for any traces of carbon monoxide that may be present. It’s possible for carbon monoxide to start collecting in the flue of your chimney, leaving the toxic gas with nowhere to go except back into your home. As a result, it starts to seep into your house, which poses a significant threat to your family’s health.

If chimneys are not properly maintained and cleaned on a regular basis, they may start to emit an unpleasant smell. Because the weather is hotter and more humid than it is during the rest of the year, it is more likely that you will become aware of an odor during the summer months. This is because of the combination of the two factors. In the event that you detect any odor coming from your chimney, it is imperative that you get in touch with a qualified expert as soon as possible in order to have it examined.

It is possible to significantly prolong the life of your chimney by having it examined once a year, particularly if there has been damage to the chimney in the recent past. An inspection may help you save money in the long term by enabling you to swiftly address any issues that may arise, preventing them from developing into bigger problems that need more costly solutions over time.

Chimney Cleaning Service FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

It is recommended by XPERT CHIMNEY SWEEP that you have a skilled expert clean and examine your chimney at least once each year.

It is possible for the time required for a chimney sweep to change depending on the degree of inspection that is required for your chimney. However, a typical visit will take around an hour and a half of your time.

Even if you’ve opted not to use your fireplace or just use it on occasion, you should be aware that the flue may still be in use whenever the furnace, boiler, or water heater is turned on.

Most people with fireplaces are aware that only dried, seasoned wood should be used. The best fireplace wood is oak, hard maple, and birch that has been cured for at least a year. Softer woods, like pine, may burn out more quickly and leave more ash residue in your fireplace, but they may also ignite more quickly and explode with sap.
