When Was Your Last Chimney Inspection?

If you cannot recall your last chimney inspection, you need to call a chimney sweep now. Many homeowners assume the chimney was inspected before purchasing the home. However, this is often not the case! Home and chimney inspections are often separate. When it’s time to schedule your chimney inspection, put your trust in the hands of a CSIA-certified professional.

Magic Sweep Inspections

When you trust Magic Sweep, you get a CSIA certified professional to perform your inspection. CSIA inspections include three different levels.

Level One – Recommended annually, they include a basic inspection of all readily accessible portions of the chimney system. This is a visual inspection only.

Level Two – More thorough than a level one inspections, this includes readily-accessible portions as well as the chimney exterior and interior. Interior portions include parts in attics, basements, and crawlspaces. A level two inspection includes a video scan of the chimney’s interior. This inspection is required if a change is made to the system, if a natural disaster or fire has occurred that might affect the chimney system, and before the sale or transfer of the property.

Level Three – This is a thorough investigation of a hazard that may include the removal of components (walls, masonry, etc.) in order to gain access to the hazard. If destructive action to the building is necessary, your chimney sweep will discuss the level three inspection before proceeding.

It’s not just Magic Sweep that recommends chimney inspections for proper function and safety year after year. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) both recommend annual inspections for the safest and most efficient chimney system possible. Inspecting the chimney system every 12 months may save your life. It may prevent thousands of dollars in damaged property, necessary repairs, and more. Don’t risk your health or your home!
