Fire. Carbon monoxide. Mold. Do we have your attention yet?
All put the safety of you, and your Racine County family, at risk. No one likes unwelcome surprises, especially when they threaten our health?
A scheduled chimney inspection, performed by a certified chimney inspector for your Racine County chimney can uncover issues before they become costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a house in Racine County, a chimney inspection can uncover problems 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 every year chimney inspections for homes with wood-burning fireplaces. A check is suggested every five years for gas fireplaces.
What can a chimney examination expose? More importantly, what can it prevent?
Buildup of creosote in chimneys causes 1,000s of fires annually in Racine County-area dwellings with wood-burning fireplaces. An animal nest or other obstruction 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 inspection 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 problems.
The certified, experienced experts at Quality Fireplace have performed hundreds of Racine 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.
