Chimney & Fireplace Inspection
At INSPECTION PROS, we offer professional and certified chimney camera inspection services. Our highly trained and experienced inspectors use specialized cameras to inspect the interior of your chimney, allowing us to identify potential issues and repairs needed.
A Level I chimney inspection includes a visual check of the fireplace and chimney without any special equipment or climbing up on the roof. The inspector will check the chimney and accessible flue with a flashlight, look for damage, obstructions, creosote buildup/soot, and tell you if the chimney requires sweeping or maintenance/repair.
A Level II chimney inspection starts with the visual check and ends with the inspection of the interior of the flue with a CCTV camera. This is the only possible way to assess the condition of the system in areas that are not visible from the fireplace opening or the exterior.
A Level III chimney inspection typically involves disassembly of parts of the chimney or fireplace. This is usually done by a chimney/fireplace contractor.
Any chimney/fireplace being used regularly should be checked yearly. They should also be checked after any seismic activity.
