Fire. Carbon monoxide. Mold. 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 routine chimney inspection, performed by a certified chimney inspector for your Waukesha County chimney can expose issues prior to them becoming costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a home in Waukesha County, a chimney inspection can reveal problems that a typical home inspection might miss.
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 suggested every five years for gas fireplaces.
What can a chimney inspection uncover? More importantly, what can it help avoid?
Buildup of creosote in chimneys causes 1,000s of fires annually in Waukesha County-area houses 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 inspections 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 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 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 fact is certain, though: Having a professional inspection will make sure they won’t hurt you.
