Virtual Chimney Inspections

Virtual inspections conducted via camera or streaming video from a cell phone a convenient way to make sure your fireplace is in good working order—and to identify problems before they become worse. Our inspection services follow the guidelines set by the Chimney Safety Institute of America.

There are three different levels of inspection, covering routine situations, when changes are made to a system and/or when a property is sold, and potentially dangerous situations. Our staff can recommend and perform the proper level of inspection needed for your fireplace.

Fireplace Inspection Services

We also offer in-person inspection services for fireplaces. Inspections allow us to recommend and handle needed maintenance, including:

  • Chimney sweeping, which removes soot and ash so that buildups do not become large and problematic.
  • Cleaning of the entire unit, which restores the appearance and functionality.
  • Repairs to crowns. A damaged crown can let damaging rainwater or even animals into your stack.
  • Repairs to like tuckpointing. This replaces the mortar between the bricks of a firebox area that has been in service for a long period of time.
  • Firebox restoration, rebuilding the firebox which repairs the area in which the wood burns.
  • Animal removal, which we perform in a safe way. This service protects both the animal and your home from harm.
  • Replacement or repair of damaged caps and covers. Chimneys that have cap problems are quite vulnerable to further damage, so we take steps to mitigate that.

To sum up, our inspections work as a way to identify and fix problems that may otherwise pose safety and performance problems.

Chimney Technical Consulting

Additionally, technical consulting is available from Chimney Draft Doctor. We help technicians launch and advance their careers, and whether you’re already a professional or not, we can provide advice in numerous areas. For example, we’ve solved aerodynamic problems such as a fireplace, which was more than a century old, that did not get along with a home’s central air conditioning and heat system. The solution was to extend the front of the fireplace. We also have identified tricky problems with lintel areas and countless other issues. Boost your sweeping career.

Chimney Sweeping Equipment Rentals

A do-it-yourself approach is possible for some aspects of cleaning, but the average homeowner is unlikely to have the necessary equipment sitting around. That’s where our equipment rentals come in, which provide you with the equipment needed to thoroughly clean your wood burning system. Our rental packages cover everything you need, including the equipment itself, the filter required to operate it, and shipping.

A virtual inspection from one of our technicians is included at no charge. You can also purchase a written report following that inspection.
