Chimney Inspections and Fireplace Inspections

Inspection Levels

Level one: Nothing has changed about your fireplace or chimney and you plan to use them both the same as always. No special tools are needed as the technician only inspects the easily accessible areas. He/She is only looking to make sure the structure is still sound without any blockages.

Level two: Something has changed such as a new liner, a new homeowner, a new fuel type, a strong storm that could have caused damage, a chimney fire, or a new performance issue. This level of the inspection may require some basic tools, and will also include a video scan of the chimney interior. As this level of inspection provides close-up images of any damage, these inspections are oftentimes referred to as real-estate, home, or insurance inspections.

Level three: This is a deeper version of the level two inspection where deeper, hidden problems may exist. Parts of the chimney/fireplace are removed such as firebox panels, chimney crowns, wall sections, and other components. As this is more drastic than the previous two, this is often the last resort.

You can count on a Guardian Chimney Sweep Macon Georgia inspection when you want to make sure your chimney and fireplace are free of damage, and other dangers. We’ll show you photos of any findings and explain them.

Would you like to make sure your fireplace is safe to cozy up to this season? We would too! So give us a call, before you light that first fire. Don’t put off your annual inspection — give Chimney Sweep Macon Georgia a call for a full system inspection.
