Why do I have to get my chimney professional inspected?

It’s important to take care of these chimney maintenance services in the fall, as it helps to avoid some dangerous safety hazards. According to the CSIA, the natural compound creosote is a leading cause of chimney fires, and you need to have it removed from your chimney every year. Your chimney should also be inspected for flue blockages, damaged components, and other problems that could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning and gases leaking back into your home.

What can I expect from a chimney inspection and sweeping with Chim Cheree, The Chimney Specialists?

When our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps arrive at your home, they begin by inspecting the flue to assess the system for leaks, damages or obstructions. If we find that soot or creosote is more than an eighth of an inch thick, we will sweep your chimney, upon consent. We never automatically sweep chimneys; we will only sweep your chimney if it needs to be swept.

While the sweep inspects the interior flue, they will also check for flue blockages, damages and issues that are lurking inside your chimney. The next step is inspecting the exterior of your chimney for any masonry damages. At the time of the inspections, we will present the photographs of the chimney and our report to the homeowner. Once the inspection is complete, we will email a link to a presentation that includes photos of the system with a recorded narration to thoroughly explain them. If repairs are needed, you can count on us to give you a fair and honest written estimate of the recommended work to fix your problems.
