Chimney Inspections and Fireplace Sweepings

Why are chimney and fireplace sweepings so important?
Ash and creosote form when you burn a fire. These can make their way to the walls of the fireplace and chimney flue, eating away at the clay tiles. This can cause deterioration and eventually a chimney fire.

Level one is performed without the aid of any specialized tools and is recommended when things are working as always, without change.
Level two when there’s a change, like a new liner, a new homeowner, a new appliance, new fuel type, a strong storm or chimney fire, or a new problem or performance issue. This level of the inspection may require some basic tools, and will also include a video scan of the chimney interior. Level two inspection and its ability to provide close-up images of damage, these inspections are oftentimes referred to as real estate, home, or insurance inspections.
Level three is a level two inspection suggests a deeper, hidden problem impossible to get to the bottom of. A level three can involve the removal of firebox panels, chimney crowns, walls, and other components of the chimney system and home, which is why it’s considered a last resort.
