What Happens During a Chimney Inspection in Wheat Ridge?

11/8/2022 (Permalink)

A chimney on a rustic cabin shows signs of discoloration from smoke. We are leaders in fire damage restoration in Jefferson County.

The National Fire Protection Association recommends chimney inspections once a year and having your fireplace cleaned by a qualified professional. Our Golden, Wheat Ridge, and Evergreen team has been restoring fire damage in Wheat Ridge for years.

Here is some information on level one and two inspections from the home improvement website, Angi:

Level One: The readily accessible chimney parts inspected usually include the fireplace, firebox, damper, flue opening, and exterior parts sticking out from the roof. In addition, the inspector will confirm there are no obstructions or combustion deposits. 

Level Two:  Inspections are required if you’re selling your home or after an operation malfunctions. Additionally, accidents such as hurricanes, destructive storms, building fires, or chimney fires warrant a level two inspection. 

During a level two chimney inspection, your inspector will check the same accessible parts of your chimney as in level one, but they will also likely examine the attic, roof, crawl space, and basement to ensure nothing is damaged

You’ll usually have a level two inspection if you’ve made changes to your chimney—this might be a change in fuel type, change to the shape of or flue material, or purchasing a new liner. Your inspector will examine all internal surfaces and joints of flue liners with a camera.
