Cleaning of the entire system – from the fireplace up:
Obstructions or blockages in your chimney can cause toxic fumes such as carbon monoxide, to enter your home. Regular chimney inspections can greatly reduce the risk of chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisoning in the home. The tar like substance is called Creosote, which can accumulate in the flue, cause unpleasant odors, improper drafting and under certain circumstances, chimney fires. Creosote is unburned wood particles and condensed flue gasses that build up over time when chimneys have been neglected.
All of Lindemann Chimney Company’s inspections meet level 2 NFPA requirements and are performed by our nationally certified technicians. Learn more about the various types of chimney inspections. The internal portion of the inspection includes a video scan of the entire system, which includes the firebox, smoke chamber, smoke shelf, chimney flue, and damper assembly.
The technician will be very meticulous, looking for obstructions, cracks in the clay tiles, absence of liner, signs of moisture and anything else that would make the chimney unsafe for use. The external portion of the inspection focuses on the integrity of the chimney cover, crown, flashing, brick and mortar. The technician is ensuring that the structure is sound, safe and preventing water and animals from getting inside.
They are also prepared to bring your fireplace and chimney into proper working order should any issues arise during the inspection. A thorough inspection allows home owners to enjoy their fireplaces all year-round.
