Internal Video Inspections Provide Added Peace Of Mind!

Assuming that your chimney is safe for use without a thorough examination, both inside and out, is a recipe for disaster. Rain, freeze/thaw cycles, corrosive flue gases and creosote erode and deteriorate your chimney’s exterior and interior. A cracked or broken flue liner can be especially dangerous, as it can allow carbon monoxide to backfill into your home, thereby putting you and everyone else in your home at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. When it comes to chimneys, identifying problem areas early can be life saving.

Past Versus Present…There Is No Contest!

Chimney sweeps used to perform internal chimney inspections using either the ineffective flashlight and mirror method or the expensive disassembly of part of the chimney to more closely see potential problem areas. Neither of these methods was ideal, but unfortunately, many sweeps still rely on the flashlight and mirror method.

It can be pretty difficult to know the condition of a chimney system without a detailed view of the inside. That’s why the team here at Olde Town Chimney Sweeps uses state-of-the-art video equipment to perform internal evaluations. Internal video inspections allow your chimney sweep to easily and more accurately evaluate your chimney’s interior. The equipment makes it possible to find even the smallest of cracks and repair them before they become big problems. This method of inspection also provides homeowners with a better understanding of the overall condition of the entire chimney system.

When To Opt For An Internal Video Inspection

There are several reasons to have an internal video inspection performed, including:

  • Transfer of Property – When you’re buying or selling a home, it’s important that you have an internal video inspection performed. This will help ensure that no damage is missed during the transfer of property and that the transaction can be made with confidence.
  • Earthquake, Strong Storm Or Other Weather Event – Extreme weather can be responsible for major chimney damage – that’s why a major weather event makes an internal video inspection imperative.
  • Chimney Fire – If you think there may have been a chimney fire in your flue, it is absolutely vital that you have the system thoroughly inspected before use.
