According to the NFPA211 these are the levels of chimney inspections and what we follow as a standard guideline:
Level 1 Chimney Inspections

A Level 1 chimney inspection is the most common type of investigation. If you’ve used your fireplace recently without any issue, then this may be the inspection level for you. With this inspection, a chimney sweep will visually inspect the exterior of your chimney and flue. They will also look at the interior of your fireplace with a flashlight to ensure there are no airflow blockages.

Level 2 Chimney Inspection

A Level 2 inspection is necessary if you’re going to sell your home, but it is also essential if you’ve had any recent storm or fire damage to your home. This inspection goes into more detail than a Level 1 inspection, and involves your technician crawling into the attic, crawlspace, and any other accessible areas around your chimney. Here, a chimney sweep uses a video camera to examine the flue and check for internal cracks in the structure of your stack.

Level 3 Chimney Inspection

A Level 3 inspection is more comprehensive than the previous two levels. In addition to making all of the checks of Level 1 and 2 inspections, a Level 3 entails removing parts of the building or chimney. This removal allows a chimney sweep to examine the interior more carefully if your chimney has sustained severe damage.

A well trained Chimney Sweep, trusted by multiple organizations and your community.

Commonly Asked Questions:

Why is cleaning important?

Chimney cleaning is important to remove soot, creosote, and debris that can build up in the chimney over time. This build-up can be a fire hazard and can also lead to unpleasant odors and smoke entering the home. Cleaning the chimney also helps to ensure that it is functioning properly and safely. It is recommended to have your chimney cleaned at least once a year, especially if you use your fireplace frequently.
How long does a cleaning take?
The amount of time it takes for a professional to clean a chimney can vary depending on the size and condition of your chimney, as well as the specific cleaning method being used. On average, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours for a professional clean. For example, a simple sweep and inspection for a standard size chimney in good condition could take around 30 minutes to an hour, while a more thorough cleaning and inspection of a larger, more complex chimney could take several hours.
Will you look at my dryer vents?
Of course. There are a lot of steps that go into cleaning and inspecting dryer vents, and we always recommend that you request an inspection rather than doing it yourself. Yes, people can perform these themselves but we do have an expert ready to help you, with the exact tools and knowledge needed to perform a cleaning if one is needed!
What are all of the services you offer?
We offer Chimney cleaning, inspections, and repairs. We also look at dryer vents, clean them, inspect and often repair them as well!
Are you licensed and insured?
Yes, we are fully licensed and insured.
Do you work with property management companies?
We currently work with both private home owners and property management companies alike.
Before buying or selling a home
It is always recommended to request the seller to perform a chimney sweep prior to purchasing a home, and encouraged to get an inspection/cleaning before selling.
