How often should chimneys be inspected?Most people don’t know how often their chimneys need cleaning. It’s hard to tell unless a trained and certified chimney sweep inspects the stack. You need to have your chimney inspected every year, according to the National Fire Protection Association Standard 211 (NFPA 211), but you do not necessarily have to have your chimney cleaned every year unless a professional chimney sweep recommends it. At All Pro Chimney Service, if your chimney is inspected and doesn’t need cleaning, we only charge for the inspection.
How All Pro Chimney Sweeps ChimneysOur professional chimney sweeps arrive on time to clean your chimney because we know your time is valuable. Our chimney sweep performs a level one inspection to determine if your chimney needs cleaning and if any repairs need to be done. Our sweeps will document what they see with photographs and notes so that you understand what needs to be done. If the sweep determines your chimney doesn’t need to be cleaned, you’ll only pay for the inspection. If your chimney needs cleaning, our sweep will then clean and inspect the flue for possible issues. The sweep will go over the cleaning and any problems they found. If your chimney needs minor repairs, the sweep may be able to fix the problems at a reduced cost to you while on site. Otherwise, you will get an estimation of the repairs needed and the price.
Levels of Chimney InspectionsWe have three levels of chimney inspections: level one, level two, and level three inspections.
- Level One Inspection — The sweep inspects the chimney’s structure for soundness. They also inspect the chimney to be sure there are no deposits or build up of flammable material and ensure that the chimney is not obstructed.
- Level Two Inspection — The sweep inspects the crawl spaces, basement, and attic and may use a video to scan the flue systems as well as perform a Level One Inspection. This is typically done with new heating appliances, after a heating appliance or chimney has malfunctioned, or when the property is for sale.
- Level Three Inspection — Level Three Inspections are performed on the hidden portions of the chimney or heating appliance when there is a hazard or malfunction, or danger is suspected.
