A chimney filled with creosote and soot is a chimney that could well set a home ablaze or poison everyone within it. A chimney inspection, as carried out by a professional, will allow a qualified set of eyes to view any and all that is unfolding within the chimney. It will help tackle what needs to be done before a chimney is put into use for the next cold season. An annual inspection qualifies as essential to its functionality, cleaning is dependent upon the results of that very inspection.
Typical chimney inspections are conducted by video. A Level 2 inspection boasts the benefits of digital eyes and is dependent upon some sort of change being made to the existing system that can range from changing from gas to logs or a relining of the flue with another material that was in place prior to.
When selling a home, a Level 2 inspection be carried out. If a chimney has gone through some sort of stretch involving it not functioning properly, a Level 2 inspection is called for in these cases.
Digital video is utilized in chimney inspection. A camera is dropped down the chimney (from the roof) and is meandered (by us) through the varying components of the chimney itself, allowing every nook and cranny (via any angle desired) to be scoped. This approach allows any interior damage that may have occurred since last inspection to be spotted so that companies like Guardian Chimney can make you aware of any and all that will need to be done to allow for ideal cold weather usage.
In some cases, damage is more extensive and will move from a Level 2 to a Level 3. A Level 3 inspection is called for when special chimney inspection and repair tools are called for to make an accurate assessment of what may be hidden underneath, calling for a more involved investigation.
