Your chimney is one of the most important fixtures in your home. You rely on it to provide your home a source of heat during the coldest days of winter and fall.
To ensure that your chimney functions properly each season, you need to have it inspected, maintained and repaired. Learn how an inspection from Warrington Chimney & Fireplace can uncover serious damages and issues that could compromise the safety and integrity of your chimney next winter. We’re one of the most trusted fireplace cleaners and inspectors in the Montgomery County area.
Dangerous Cracks and Leaks
The Warrington Chimney & Fireplace technicians are experienced and trained to look for dangerous leaks and cracks in your chimney. At first glance, it might look like your chimney is intact and capable of being used safely. However, your untrained eye can miss out on serious damages that can compromise the safety and health of your family.
The technicians who inspect your chimney can reveal cracks and holes that can leak smoke and gas into your home. They can also seal and repair these damages so that you avoid the risk of being exposed to toxins that can make you and your family ill.
Clogs and Debris
Looking up inside of the chimney and seeing if it is clogged or full of debris can be next to impossible for untrained homeowners. You lack the equipment and skills needed to inspect this part of your chimney.
When you hire our team, you can ask that the inside of the chimney be thoroughly examined and cleaned if necessary. Our technicians can look for debris that can catch on fire and cause gas and smoke to back up in the stack and blow back out into your home.
Some of the debris that the inspectors can look for and remove include:
● Branches and twigs
● Birds' nests
● Spiders and cobwebs
● Dirt and dust
They arrive to the job with the newest equipment available in the chimney inspection industry. They can sweep out and rinse the inside of your chimney so that it is free from debris and capable of being used safely next winter.
Missing Bricks and Mortar
Finally, inspectors from our company can look for missing bricks, mortar and other building materials that can compromise the function and appearance of your chimney. If need be, they can replace these materials. They ensure that your chimney is intact and capable of being used safely and continuously during the season.
Before winter arrives, you need to have your chimney inspected and repaired. Rather than attempt this work on your own, you can instead hire technicians who are trained, experienced and ready to take care of it for you. An inspection from Warrington Chimney & Fireplace can address serious damages and issues. If you’re in need of a chimney inspection in Chester County this year, get in touch with us today!
