Fire. Carbon monoxide. Mold. Do we have your attention yet?
All put the safety of you, and your Ozaukee County family, at risk. No one likes unwelcome surprises, especially when they threaten our health?
A regular chimney inspection, performed by a professional chimney inspector for your Ozaukee County chimney can expose problems prior to them becoming costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a place in Ozaukee County, a chimney inspection can uncover issues that a typical home inspection might not see.
Quality Fireplace is your source for professional, reliable chimney examinations that get you answers and peace of mind.
The National Fire Protection Association recommends every year chimney inspections for residences with wood-burning fireplaces. A check is suggested every 5 years for gas fireplaces.
What can a chimney inspection uncover? More importantly, what can it help avoid?
Buildup of creosote in chimneys causes 1,000s of fires annually in Ozaukee County-area houses 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 inspections have two options.
A Level 1 visual examination employs a bright “trouble light” to spot obstructions, 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 Ozaukee 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 thing is certain, though: Having a professional examination will make sure they won’t hurt you.
