Giving the chimney a good wash

Types of Fireplace Inspections

Level One

Level one is performed without the aid of any specialized tools and is recommended when things are working as always, without change.

Level Two

Level two when there’s a change needed, like a new liner,  a new appliance, a new fuel type, a strong storm or chimney fire, or a new problem or performance issue. This level of an inspection may require some basic tools, and will also include a video scan of the chimney interior.  Level two inspection and its ability to provide close-up images of damage, these inspections are oftentimes referred to as real estate, home, or insurance inspections.

Level Three

Level three is a level two inspection that suggests a deeper, hidden problem impossible to get to the bottom of. A level three can involve the removal of firebox panels, chimney crowns, walls, and other components of the chimney system and home, which is why it’s considered a last resort.
