sweep inspecting chimneyChimney Sweeps and Inspections

Sweeps and inspections are two of the most routine chimney services we offer. Chimney sweeps clear your chimney of debris which allows smoke to flow freely out of your home. Potential debris and obstructions in your chimney include creosote, soot, and animal nesting materials. Creosote is a highly flammable byproduct created by burning wood and sticks to the chimney’s interior over time. Neglecting to sweep your chimney regularly results in the build up of said materials, which increases your risk of fire while decreasing the efficiency of your chimney system.

Inspections are another service offered by C&C Chimney. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) outlines three levels of inspections, each with differing levels of thoroughness depending on the condition of your chimney. Level 1 inspections are included during annual chimney sweepings, and are required if you keep up with regular maintenance. They ensure that there are no major problems with any chimney components. Level 2 inspections use video camera technology for a more in-depth look at your system. Level 3 inspections are the most thorough and only recommended when a level 1 or 2 inspection does not locate the problem. They usually require major construction or demolition work.
