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 well-being?
A routine chimney inspection, performed by a certified chimney inspector for your Milwaukee County chimney can uncover problems before they become costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a home in Milwaukee County, a chimney inspection can reveal issues that a typical home inspection might not look for.
Quality Fireplace is your source for professional, reliable chimney examinations that get you answers and peace of mind.
The National Fire Protection Association recommends annual chimney inspections for residences with wood-burning fireplaces. A check is suggested every 5 years for gas fireplaces.
What can a chimney inspection expose? More importantly, what can it help avoid?
Buildup of creosote in chimneys causes thousands of fires annually in Milwaukee County-area houses with wood-burning fireplaces. An animal nest or other blockage can trap carbon monoxide, exposing the family to deadly fumes.
Accumulated moisture might spur mold growth, which is linked to a multitude of health problems in humans.
Chimney inspections 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 fixed 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 examined.
You might not know much about your chimney, nor any potential hazards waiting there. One fact is certain, though: Having a professional inspection will make sure they won’t hurt you.
