* Having your chimney regularly inspected helps to make sure that you’re alerted to any potential problems before they become dangerous or costly.
* According to the National Fire Protection Association [NFPA], your chimney should be inspected once a year and cleaned as needed (depending on design and usage [ie, the amount of wood burned]).

What You Can Expect When An ASAP Chimney Technician Inspects Your Chimney:

All ASAP inspectors will be in full uniform and present you with a business card and photo ID. Protective footwear will be worn to protect your flooring. The technician will then do the following:

  1. Technician will wear protective footwear and put protective floor coverings in front of fireplace
  2. Conduct a visual inspection of the inside portion of your fireplace.
  3. Get up on your roof and do a visual inspection of the portion of your chimney
  4. Inspect your chimney using video scanning equipment that displays pictures of your flue on an LCD screen. This is used to illustrate voids or cracks that may exist and if a cleaning is needed.
  5. If needed, sweep/clean the firebox, flue, smoke shelf, damper, smoke chamber, flue, and gas logs (if appropriate).
  6. Provide a written report describing the condition [incl. potential problems] of the chimney.
  7. Clean work spaces.

No work is ever done without customer authorization after an estimate of the cost. Our customers are encouraged to ask questions; we want you to understand the process and the result. For more information on what to expect when we inspect your chimney, view the video below.

The Three Levels of Inspection

Level One Inspection

  • We inspect the readily-accessible areas of your chimney in the living area and at the exterior of your home, including the smoke chamber, firebox, and damper.
  • Outside, we check to make sure the chimney Cap meets Code and does not restrict the draft.
  • We also check for deterioration and structural soundness.

Level Two Inspection

  • This type of Inspection is recommended before beginning modifications to your chimney or stove heating system and also…
  • It is recommended during a change in property ownership and also…
  • It is recommended after a chimney fire or natural disaster.

We use a special camera system to look inside your chimney and complete a comprehensive visual inspection. A detailed written report then outlines any areas of concern.

Level Three Inspection

  • A Level Three inspection includes all the items in a Level One and Level Two inspection, as well as the removal of portions of the chimney.
  • A chimney has several concealed areas. Whether it is the internal metal flue pipe, or the unexposed brick of a masonry structure, sometimes it may be necessary to remove some or all of these chimney parts to inspect the requisite area.
  • This inspection is only needed if something is found in a L1 or L2 Inspection that otherwise cannot otherwise be dealt with properly. An extremely small percent [approx. 1% or less] require a Level Three Inspection.
