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 routine chimney examination, performed by a professional chimney inspector for your Waukesha County chimney can expose problems prior to them becoming costly – and potentially dangerous.
If you’re considering buying a home in Waukesha County, a chimney inspection can reveal issues that a typical house inspection might not look for.
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 examinations for houses with wood-burning fireplaces. A check is recommended every 5 years for gas fireplaces.
What can a chimney examination expose? More importantly, what can it prevent?
Buildup of creosote in chimneys causes thousands of fires annually in Waukesha County-area houses with wood-burning fireplaces. An animal nest or other obstruction can trap carbon monoxide, exposing the family 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 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 problems.
The certified, experienced experts at Quality Fireplace have performed hundreds of Waukesha 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 thing is certain, though: Having a professional examination will make sure they won’t hurt you.
