After storms like these have occurred, the CSIA urges fireplace owners to invest in an NFPA Level 2 chimney inspection. These inspections offer a more in-depth analysis of your chimney’s interior system, and the sweeps put video equipment to use to ensure every area is inspected and analyzed.
We’ll check for damages from the crown to the damper to the chimney liner and everywhere else in between. Once we’re done with our thorough and comprehensive scan, we’ll give you an update as to where your system is at, and we will recommend what the best next steps would be for repairing and restoring your system.
We’re experienced and we’ve trained extensively for every service we offer. Our sweeps are CSIA certified, and we’re members of the NCSG and the South Carolina Chimney Sweep Guild, as well. There’s no doubting our knowledge and expertise, and you can rest easy knowing we’re up-to-date on all of the latest tools and technologies in this constantly evolving field. If you want to work with the best, we’re it! Call for your appointment today.
Dangers Of A Damaged Chimney
A damaged chimney will weaken more and more the longer issues go unaddressed. Water damage causes all kinds of problems like rotting, rusting, unsightly staining, clogs, deterioration, and more. Not to mention, if the weather goes below freezing this winter, you’ll be vulnerable to the freeze/thaw process, which puts a lot of extra pressure on your system and could eventually trigger a settlement or collapse.
One thing is for certain… You should not put your system to use until it has been inspected and repaired. Bad weather like this leads to cracks and crumbling, both of which make your home more vulnerable to house fires and gas leaks. It’s not worth taking any chances!
Whatever issues you are experiencing, our team is equipped to handle the job. Our owner, Drew Stein, has been in this line of work for over 15 years, serving the Midlands area of South Carolina throughout it all.
