Chimneys are vulnerable to buildup, but comprehensive chimney inspection and cleaning remove materials to prevent fire hazards. Smoke Alert Home Fire Safety offers professional chimney inspections to keep your fireplace in excellent working condition and help you safely enjoy cozy nights by the fire.
Why You Need Regular Chimney Inspections
A fireplace offers dependable warmth, creates a welcoming ambiance and lends to the aesthetic appeal of your home. Needless to say, a fireplace is an asset but can become a dangerous liability without proper maintenance.
Regular chimney inspection is a vital part of fireplace maintenance because regular use and constant exposure to the elements cause significant wear and tear on this structure. Over time, that wear and tear can damage components, reduce efficiency and even compromise your chimney’s structural integrity. A professional chimney inspection is meant to detect any issues before they become major problems.
According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), a certified technician should check your chimney at least annually to ensure a thorough inspection. Smoke Alert Home Fire Safety performs CSIA-certified chimney inspections that meet necessary codes, standards and regulations.
When Do You Need a Chimney Inspection?
You should arrange a professional chimney inspection at least once a year. The ideal time to schedule an inspection is in the spring and summer to avoid the high volume time or year of the cold months when we can be booked out quite far. If you use your fireplace on a regular basis, however, you may need to schedule more frequent chimney inspections. Several signs can indicate your chimney is due for an inspection. Contact Smoke Alert Home Fire Safety as soon as possible if you notice any of the following indications:
- Fires burning less efficiently than usual
- Smoke billowing into your house
- Unusual odors, such as a strong campfire smell
- Rust in the firebox
- Difficulty operating damper
- Visible moisture in the firebox
You should also schedule an inspection if you plan to modify your fireplace or chimney, your chimney has been damaged by weather or a fire, or you move into a house with a fireplace. Even a chimney that appears to be in good condition can need attention or repairs, so inspection is crucial.
