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 examination, performed by a certified chimney inspector for your Racine County chimney can expose issues prior to them becoming costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a home in Racine County, a chimney inspection can uncover problems 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 examinations for homes with wood-burning fireplaces. A check is suggested every five years for gas fireplaces.
What can a chimney examination find? More importantly, what can it prevent?
Buildup of creosote in chimneys causes thousands of fires annually in Racine 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 examinations have two options.
A Level 1 visual inspection 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 Racine County-area chimney inspections. 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 fact is certain, though: Having a professional examination will make sure they won’t hurt you.
