Chimney Sweep Technicians
When you are looking for chimney services it is important to be cautious. There are no industry-wide standards or regulations for chimney sweeps. You could pay thousands of dollars for your installation or to fix your chimney leak, only to have it done halfway or incorrectly. Don’t make that mistake! That’s why it’s important to make sure that you have a CSIA certified specialist. Our techs wear that badge proudly here at Carolina Chimney Services.
Cory Schafer: Carolina Chimney CSIA Certified Chimney Technician
We Fix LEAKY CHIMNEYS!
Our CSIA Process
Our technicians follow the 3 levels of inspection as outlined by nfpa211.
When we first get to your home, our certified chimney technician will take a look at your chimney’s condition, as well as the cap. They will also look at your fireplace inside. They will check and inspect for any damages and assess any repairs that might be needed. Using our chimney camera they will inspect the inside of your system from bottom to top.
Next, they will take care to prepare the area for the cleaning. Our technicians will lay drop cloths so that when our process is complete, your home is just as clean as when we got there.
Using an industrial vacuum to extract any soot and creosote, our technicians will use chimney brushes the length of the flue to thoroughly clean your chimney.
Inside and Out
Our chimney sweeping process involves both cleaning from the outside going down and the inside going up. Small brushes will also be used on the smoke chamber as well.
Small Parts Inspected
If you have a stove or there are baffles or chimney connectors, these small parts will be removed and inspected if needed.
Cleanup and Report
When we are convinced that your fireplace or stove and chimney have been fully inspected and cleaned, we will clean up the areas and provide you with a full report of our findings and assessment.
At Carolina Chimney Services we stand behind our work and are committed to your satisfaction.
- If my chimney hasn’t been used it doesn’t need to be inspected. Answer: If you are worried just about smoke, then you might be right, but the structure and integrity of your chimney suffers from regular wear and tear as well as weathering, so regular maintanance is still important.
- I can save money by cleaning my chimney on my own. Answer: If you do not have the proper tools and experience, not only will it be a very difficult job, but you risk missing crucial elements that could cause a fire hazard.
- The most important thing is that my chimney technician is fast and has the best price. Answer: While affordability and speedy service is importance what is MOST important is that you choose a CSIA certified technician. This assures you are getting quality chimney services.
