Cleveland Chimney Inspection

Ensuring your chimney is in top condition.

Chimneys are built to last many decades. In fact, in many Cleveland homes, their brick construction is far more durable than the wood framing of the rest of the house. But this doesn’t mean things cannot go wrong.

From improper maintenance to foundation settling causing cracks in the brickwork, chimney problems can and do develop in Cleveland area homes. Unfortunately, these can have devastating consequences, including cause house fires and carbon monoxide poisoning. Green & Clean Home Services offers Cleveland and the surrounding areas chimney inspections that ensure your home is safe.

Key Facts About Chimney Inspection

Chimneys Should Be Inspected Often

When you purchase a home, you should get a chimney inspection prior to signing the paperwork. After that, you will need to get it inspected at least every 12 months. However, if you enjoy frequent nights by the fireplace, it might be safest to get yours inspected every six months.

Cleaning and Inspection Are Not the Same

While these two services are often paired together, they are two separate things. Cleaning is simply about removing buildup and debris from the flue, while inspection looks for all issues that could cause harm or lead to structural failure.

Chimney Inspectors Have Special Qualifications

A chimney sweep can also be a chimney inspector, if they have the right training. But not every cleaning technician knows how to properly inspect flues and other structures. Before you trust someone to inspect your chimney, ensure they have the right certifications and training.

What to Expect From Cleveland Chimney Inspection

At Green & Clean, we offer three levels of chimney inspection, allowing you to get the exact level of service you need without paying for extras. For most homeowners, a level-one inspection is all they will ever need.

Level-One Chimney Inspection

With this, the inspector uses a flashlight to inspect the chimney for damage, obstructions, and buildup. If there are any issues, they explain your options to you and then address them through cleaning or repair.

Level-Two Chimney Inspection

This is a more detailed inspection meant for after earthquakes, tornados, or construction around your chimney. We also suggest a level-two inspection prior to signing for a home. With this, the inspector gets into the attic and crawl spaces to more closely examine the chimney and also looks at the exterior surfaces above the roofline. Video scanning and other tools may be used for thorough imaging.

Level-Three Chimney Inspection

This is the most invasive level of inspection and often results in tearing down and rebuilding parts or all of the chimney. This typically takes place after a chimney fire or other catastrophic event.

David was professional and friendly. Very knowledgable about his fireplace services! He had helpful tips for maintenance and the care of our fireplaces. He even took the time to start a fire with me to teach me to start small! Highly recommend for fireplace services and will use them in the future. Communication prior to his arrival was perfect and timely.

David probably saved our lives. He came out to clean our chimney that had gas logs installed this year. I noticed soot accumulation on the ceiling and new carpet and had stopped using the fireplace. David found that the previous owner had stuffed the chimney with insulation which is flammable. Fire from the gas log insert could have ignited the insulation and burned the house down. David is an AWESOME person, very professional, and he knows his stuff! Thank you, thank you David and happy birthday today.

I am very happy with Green and Clean Home Services. I purchased a century home and had limited time to get all the inspections done. It was really difficult to find a qualified individual willing to come out in November to provide an inspection with pretty short notice. Dave really didn’t have any openings, but he offered to come out on a Sunday and get this inspection done. He was showed up on time, was very professional, and was quite knowledgeable. Grean And Clean is also certified by CSIA which not all Chimney Sweep companies bother to get. Alas, I do need some repairs done on my chimney, but I feel good knowing exactly what needs to be done, and that I have someone I trust to do the repairs.
