Chimney Inspection

chimney inspection, what are we
looking for?
 We offer a 21 point
inspection that encompasses all
components that a chimney and fireplace
could contain.  This inspection will reveal if
the chimney is well maintained and in perfect
working order or if there are any problems
that could occur durig normal operation.  The
most common problems found are leaky
crowns, leaky caps and dampers, cracked
fireboxes and
the most dangerous
condition, dirty flues
In general we check for four basic things:
1.  Is there soot built up or third stage creosote that needs  to be removed to prevent a chimney fire.*
2.  Is the chimney heat tight?  Is there any obvious signs of wear that heat can escape through causing  a
house fire?*
3.  Is the chimney air tight?  Is there any obvious signs of wear that smoke and poisonous gasses like
carbon monoxide can escape through your walls causing a deadly situation for you and your family.*
4.  Is the chimney water tight?  Is there an obvious place where wear or rust is letting water into your
home that is causing damage?*
Third Stage Creosote Removal
stage creosote has built up.  This is the most
flammable stage of creosote.  At first when smoke
leaves deposits in your chimney that is the powdery

stage creosote has built stage is after a lot of
soot has built up and has cooked in the chimney,
now it is solid and hard and cannot be swept.  It can
have a musty smell that sometimes is very strong
throughout the house.  To remove Third Stage
Creosote we have to apply a chemical treatment that
breaks it down so that later

is best to have your chimney swept before Third Stage forms.

top then he'll try to exit through your home.  Some have their babies in your chimney and when they don't all
survive they die in there creating a terrible smell and maggot infestation.  Plus the critters have lice, fleas,
dander and diseases that can put your family at risk.  The nests left behind are not just fuel for a raging
chimney fire but they block the chimney so fumes and smoke can't escape.  The migratory birds that nest in
