Fire. Carbon monoxide. Mold. Do we have your attention yet?
All put the safety of you, and your Milwaukee County family, at risk. No one likes unwelcome surprises, especially when they threaten our health?
A routine chimney examination, performed by a professional chimney inspector for your Milwaukee County chimney can expose problems before they become costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a house in Milwaukee County, a chimney inspection can expose problems that a typical house inspection might not see.
Quality Fireplace is your source for professional, reliable chimney inspections that get you answers and peace of mind.
The National Fire Protection Association recommends annual chimney examinations for residences with wood-burning fireplaces. A check is suggested every 5 years for gas fireplaces.
What can a chimney examination find? More importantly, what can it help avoid?
Buildup of creosote in chimneys causes 1,000s of fires annually in Milwaukee County-area dwellings with wood-burning fireplaces. An animal nest or other blockage can trap carbon monoxide, exposing residents to deadly fumes.
Accumulated moisture might spur mildew growth, which is linked to a multitude of health problems in humans.
Chimney examinations have two options.
A Level 1 visual examination employs a bright “trouble light” to spot blockages, and identify whether cleaning is needed.
A Level 2 examination uses a specialized chimney camera to film the interior tile liner. The close-ups on this “Chim-Scan Video” reveal cracked flue tiles or other liner gaps. Small problems, discovered early, can usually be repaired easier than those that linger, and become major issues.
The certified, experienced experts at Quality Fireplace have performed hundreds of Milwaukee County-area chimney examinations. Don’t wait until a blockage sends smoke billowing into your living room – or worse, a fire erupts in a creosote-caked passage - to get your chimney inspected.
You might not know much about your chimney, nor any potential hazards waiting there. One thing is certain, though: Having a professional inspection will make sure they won’t hurt you.
