How does Antrim’s Inspect Chimneys?
Antrim’s, A Good Sweep Chimney and Masonry uses special chimney scanning video cameras to analyze the interior condition of your chimney. Video inspection of terracotta clay chimney interiors, in particular, can uncover potentially dangerous issues and should be checked on an annual basis especially if you have a large or tall chimney. We can discover sidewall cracks, deteriorated mortar, or completely missing mortar joints within in the flue lining which can lead to dangerous carbon monoxide gas leaking into your home. Often, chimney inspections are done in conjunction with your annual chimney sweep.
How Often Does My Chimney Need to be Inspected?
The National Fire Protection Association recommends that all chimneys that are in use should be inspected annually and cleaned as needed. (This includes central heating oil and gas appliance chimney’s as well.)
If you are burning a wood stove or a fireplace on a weekly basis all winter, getting your chimney inspected and swept is especially important to the safety of your home and your family. Having your chimney inspected and swept regularly by one of our certified chimney sweeps greatly reduces
the potential for problems such as flue blockages and chimney fires.
