We started our week off with an inspection and cleaning of a wood burning prefab fireplace.
As always we start each visit for a cleaning with an inspection. This lets us know if the fireplace is suitable for cleaning and won’t come apart or damage our equipment or the home. After our assessment of the fireplace, we deemed that it was too dirty to see the true condition inside the flue and the repairs that were needed inside the fireplace, were indeed fixable so we decided to continue to the chimney cleaning. Next we did the fireplace cleaning and removed all the creosote that fell from the flue.
So after sweeping (cleaning) the flue, we were able to get a better view of the flue liner and give a thorough level 2 inspection.
Lastly, we provided the customer with a detailed report of everything that was done by our CSIA certified tech as well as suggested repairs found to keep the home and homeowner safe.
See photos below along with an example of our reports.
