Cleveland Fireplace Inspection

Getting you ready for chilly weather.

Fireplaces are built to last decades, if not a lifetime. In many Cleveland homes, they are the most durable pieces of construction. But this doesn’t mean you won’t run into problems with your fireplace. 

From infrequent cleaning to foundation settling leading to cracked masonry, you want to catch problems with your fireplace before they lead to more severe issues in your home. Green & Clean offers Cleveland fireplace inspection that keeps your home safe.

Key Facts About Fireplace Inspection

Fireplaces Should Be Inspected Often

The first time your fireplace should be inspected is prior to signing the papers to purchase your home. After that, you want to get a fireplace inspection a minimum of every 12 months. If you frequently enjoy nights by the fire, however, getting yours inspected twice a year or once per quarter could be best.

Cleaning and Inspection Are Not the Same

It is easy to assume that when your fireplace is cleaned, the technician will automatically inspect your fireplace as well. However, this isn't the case. Cleaning and inspection are two separate services, and while an inspector can also clean, not every cleaner is an inspector.

Fireplace Inspectors Have Special Training

Inspectors need to understand all structural components of fireplaces, which requires more in-depth knowledge than it takes to clean them. A professional fireplace inspector will have specialized training and documented certification.

What to Expect From Cleveland Fireplace Inspection

Green & Clean fireplace inspection comes in three different levels, making it easy to get a clear picture of the health of your fireplace without any extras driving up the price. 

Level-One Fireplace Inspection

At this level, the inspector visually examines all the parts of the fireplace, including the damper casing, damper, facing, lintel, hearth, ash pit, firebox, and throat. They also use a fireplace to look up into the chimney and ensure there are no obstruction, buildup, or obvious damage.

Level-Two Fireplace Inspection

With this inspection, things get more detailed. Typically speaking, you only need a level-two inspection if you are purchasing a home or after events that are likely to cause severe damage: earthquakes, tornados, and construction around the chimney. Special scanning devices may be used to image all elements of the fireplace and chimney to examine them in detail, and the inspector will get into crawl spaces and attics to better assess all aspects of the fireplace.

Level-Three Fireplace Inspection

Level-three inspections are only needed when it is clear catastrophic damage has taken place. With this, even more detailed imaging is used, and in many cases, parts of the fireplace and chimney will be torn down and rebuilt.

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.
