Chimney Sweeping

Chimney sweeping involves the thorough cleaning of the chimney and flue system. Over time, soot, creosote, debris, and other combustion byproducts can accumulate inside the chimney, restricting airflow, and increasing the risk of chimney fires. A chimney sweep, who is a trained professional, uses specialized tools like brushes, rods, and vacuums to remove these deposits from the chimney. The sweep starts from the bottom, typically accessing the chimney through the fireplace or stove, and works their way up to the chimney’s top. Regular chimney sweeping helps prevent chimney fires, improves indoor air quality by reducing the presence of harmful substances, and ensures proper ventilation.

Chimney Inspection

Chimney inspection involves a detailed examination of the chimney structure, components, and overall condition to identify any potential issues or hazards. There are three levels of chimney inspection:

Level 1

This is a basic visual inspection typically conducted during routine chimney maintenance. The inspector examines accessible portions of the chimney, checking for signs of damage, blockages, or other concerns. Level 1 inspections are recommended annually.

Level 2

This is a more comprehensive inspection that includes a visual examination as well as the use of specialized tools or equipment, such as a camera, to assess the internal condition of the chimney. Level 2 inspections are typically performed when there have been changes to the chimney system, such as a new appliance installation, or when buying or selling a property.

Level 3

This is the most thorough and invasive type of inspection. It involves the removal of certain components of the chimney or building structure to gain access to concealed areas or when serious hazards are suspected, such as structural damage or a hidden chimney fire. Level 3 inspections are conducted when necessary to ensure the chimney's safety.
