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 examination, performed by a professional chimney inspector for your Washington County chimney can uncover issues before they become costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a house in Washington County, a chimney inspection can find issues that a typical house 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 recommended every five years for gas fireplaces.
What can a chimney examination uncover? More importantly, what can it help avoid?
Buildup of creosote in chimneys causes 1,000s of fires annually in Washington County-area dwellings 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 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 repaired easier than those that linger, and become major problems.
The certified, experienced experts at Quality Fireplace have performed hundreds of Washington 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.
