Fire. Carbon monoxide. Mold. Do we have your attention yet?
All put the safety of you, and your Washington County family, at risk. No one likes unwelcome surprises, especially when they threaten our well-being?
A regular chimney inspection, performed by a professional chimney inspector for your Washington County chimney can uncover issues prior to them becoming costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a house in Washington County, a chimney inspection can reveal 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 examinations for residences with wood-burning fireplaces. A check is suggested every 5 years for gas fireplaces.
What can a chimney inspection reveal? More importantly, what can it prevent?
Buildup of creosote in chimneys causes thousands of fires annually in Washington County-area houses with wood-burning fireplaces. An animal nest or other obstruction can trap carbon monoxide, exposing inhabitants 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 inspection 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 Washington 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 examined.
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.
