This is a level 1 inspection, plus smart scan for fireplace chimneys, home buyers, new home owners, current home owners or anyone who would like to check the compliance and safety of their chimneys, fireplaces, vents, and solid fuel-burning appliances.

Level 2 inspection for wood stove or fireplace: $159.00
Level 2 inspection is required by National Fire Protection agency when a property is changing hands (real estate inspections); if there has been an event that may have damaged the chimney such as a chimney fire or a lightning strike; or before a different type of appliance is installed in a fire place (such as a wood or pellet insert.) Level 2 inspections should also be done if anything is detected during a level 1 inspection that indicates the need for a deeper inspection. Level 2 inspection includes inspecting the entire system, inside and out. For further clarification of a level 2 inspection, look at the NFPA 211 standard for chimneys, fireplaces, vents, and solid fuel-burning appliances.
FIREPLACE CLEAN & SCAN: $179.00
Every fireplace chimney cleaning we do comes with a Smart Scan, which enables us to make sure your chimney is safe from the inside out.
VACUUM SMOKE SHELF BEHIND THROAT DAMPER: $29.00
Many masonry fireplaces have throat dampers that separate the throat of the fireplace from the smoke shelf. This kind of damper has a handle that comes down into the fireplace, and you generally pull it towards you to open it and push it towards the rear of the firebox to close it. When we sweep the chimney, the creosote falls behind the damper onto the smoke shelf. We put on a tyvec hazmat suit and a respirator and climb up into the fireplace to vacuum that debris, and other debris that may have accumulated, from behind the damper.
