The Benefits of a Video Chimney Inspection

Since some parts of your chimney are hidden, there are likely hazards that are impossible for you to see. That is why it is very important to have a professional chimney sweeping and inspection every year. Although a professional chimney sweep can get a better look at your chimney, it can still be difficult to examine the hidden parts. At All Seasons Chimney, we gives you the option of scheduling a video chimney inspection.

A video scan comes with the Level 2 inspections, but we can add this to our Level 1 inspection too. Our certified and trained chimney professionals use the Chim-Scan Chimney Inspection Camera System to get an up-close look at the inside of your chimney. With a thorough look at the inside of your chimney, you can rest easy. We would like to tell you more about the benefits of this chimney inspection.

Provides clear evidence for home insurance claims

Our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified chimney professionals provide you photographs of any damage we find during the inspection. You will also receive a copy of the video scan.

Allows chimney professionals to find hazards lurking inside the chimney

One of the most dangerous issues inside a chimney is having cracks in the flue liner. When this type of damage is present, you are at a greater risk for an accidental fire. With our Chim-Scan video camera system, we are able to find any damage inside your chimney. This is why a Level 2 chimney inspection is necessary when buying or selling a home. You will be able to use the video scan and the photographs of the chimney, if we find problems, when negotiating the price of the home.

Adding a video scan to your chimney inspection is the best way to know your chimney is safe and efficient. Contact us today at All Seasons Chimney to schedule an appointment!
