Why Should You Get A Chimney Inspection?

There is nothing better than getting cozy near a fire in the comfort of your home. And, your chimney allows you to do so.

Getting a chimney inspection can give you peace of mind knowing you, your family and guests are safe when using your fireplace. 

Here are some reasons why you should get your chimney inspected. 

Remove Obstructions 

Just like your eavestroughs, your chimney can get clogged if it is frequently used or simply by dust. And, any outdoor debris can also be carried into your chimney. If you light a fire when your chimney is extremely clogged, it can create an unexpectedly big fire.

Getting it properly and thoroughly cleaned can prevent any unwanted fires and can also prevent smoke from coming inside your home. Remember, smoke needs to find a place to go, so if it can’t go outside, it will come inside. 

Ensure It Is In Good Condition 

Your chimney is made up of various components that contribute to your home’s infrastructure. It’s bricks, damper system, and crown need to be in good condition to prevent water damage, fires, or carbon monoxide poisoning.

If a professional notices any issues with your roof, you can get them repaired before any issues arise. It can also help you to become aware of any structural damage if there are any, saving you money in the future. 

Meet Insurance Requirements 

In some cases, it may be a requirement from your house insurance company to get a chimney inspection. And if you don’t, and an issue arises, your insurance company most likely won’t cover the cost of any damage. So, take a look at your homeowner’s insurance to make sure you meet the necessary requirements.
