Fire. Carbon monoxide. Mildew. Do we have your attention yet?
All put the safety of you, and your Waukesha County family, at risk. No one likes unwelcome surprises, especially when they threaten our health?
A scheduled chimney inspection, completed by a professional chimney inspector for your Waukesha County chimney can reveal issues before they become costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a residence in Waukesha County, a chimney inspection can find 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 annual chimney inspections for dwellings with wood-burning fireplaces. A check is recommended 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 Waukesha County-area dwellings with wood-burning fireplaces. An animal nest or other blockage can trap carbon monoxide, exposing residents to deadly fumes.
Accumulated moisture might spur mold 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 obstructions, 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 repaired easier than those that linger, and become major issues.
The certified, experienced experts at Quality Fireplace have performed hundreds of Waukesha 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 inspection will make sure they won’t hurt you.
