During the summer months, you’re probably not using your fireplace and chimney that often. This makes it a good time to get a chimney inspection from a quality Marietta chimney sweep. At Advanced Chimney Sweeps, we provide inspections to make sure your chimney is safe and functioning. This way, any repairs can be done before the winter months!
What’s Included With a Chimney Inspection?
A chimney inspection involves one of our certified chimney sweeps doing a detailed inspection of your chimney. The National Fire Protection Agency recommends that you get an inspection done at least once a year to ensure the safety of your chimney. We want to make sure that it’s operating in a safe manner, as well as doing its job efficiently.
When we do an inspection, it involves looking at both the interior and exterior of your chimney. We’ll check for any cracks or defects that may make it unsafe to operate your fireplace. The firebox, smoke chamber, flue pipes, and caps will all be examined to make sure that they’re working correctly.
If we notice that maintenance is needed, we’ll let you know. We may also suggest that you get a chimney sweep before you use your fireplace again. Our expert will provide you with a detailed estimate at no obligation to you. If you want to use our services again, simply call us to set up the selected service!
What Problems Might Be Found With My Chimney?
Chimney problems are often hard to recognize for someone that isn’t certified in chimney inspection. They aren’t easily seen by the person using the fireplace and chimney. Most commonly, we see cracks in the back of the firebox or wind damage to your flue. This is something we’ll notice in our cursory inspection.
We’ll also notice if your chimney is due to be swept. The smoke that comes from your fireplace contains various different things that cause build-up called creosote. This creosote then lines the chimney each time you use your fireplace. Once the build-up gets to about ⅛ of an inch, it’s time to get it taken care of.
If you decide to call us back to take care of these problems for you, we offer our services with our no-mess guarantee. Each of our chimney sweeps works diligently to make sure the job is done right and you don’t have to clean up after us. For example, while chimney sweeping, any airborne dust or particles will go into the large HEPA filter vacuum that’s standard for our services.
