Now that summer is in full swing, it’s a great time to make an appointment to get your annual chimney inspection and cleaning. Every homeowner knows that it’s important to do this regularly, and the sooner you get it done, the more time there is to make necessary repairs we might find. If you’ve been diligent about getting an annual chimney inspection and cleaning, you know the process is quick and easy.

However, the longer it’s been since your last inspection and sweeping, then the more time and effort it will take to get your chimney up to working condition. That’s why at Black Velvet Chimney, we offer three levels of inspection.

Level One

We will do a basic look-over of the areas of your chimney. We will also make sure that all connections are sound and the basic structure of the chimney is sturdy.

Video Scanning: Level Two

With a Level Two inspection, we’ll take a deeper look-around. We use video equipment to get down into the interior of the chimney, where our sweeps won’t fit. This allows us to see if there has been any damage due to a chimney fire, weather conditions, or other natural disasters. We’ll for sure do a video inspection if this is the case. You will also need a Level Two inspection if there’s a change in ownership of the property.

Level Three

With a Level Three inspection, we’ll use the video equipment, and we’ll go even one step further. For this level of inspection, we usually open up areas of your chimney to get a closer look at things. This is an intensive level of inspection, as your chimney will need destruction to get to the deeper issues. It also requires more repair work and more clean up.
