Fireplace Inspection


Serving Homes Throughout the Surrounding Areas

Using your home’s fireplace year after year without inspection is like driving your car year after year without inspecting it: it’s dangerous and can get you into trouble. Inspecting your fireplace is far more than a quick peak up the chimney; it involves a thorough visual and physical inspection of many aspects of your fireplace and chimney, including the crown, chimney walls, masonry, firebox, and damper.

This is one of the reasons why it’s important to hire only trained and certified fireplace technicians to inspect your fireplace and chimney annually. A second reason is to ensure your safety. Our fireplace experts have been offering comprehensive fireplace inspection service for many years, and your safety and comfort are always our first priority. Does your fireplace need inspection?

Why You Need to Have Your Fireplace & Chimney Inspected

While the overall reason to have your fireplace and chimney inspected annually is to make sure your chimney and fireplace are safe, there are other, more specific reasons to hire our experts for fireplace inspection in Idaho Falls, ID:

  • Your home’s insurance policy – many home insurance policies require that your working fireplace be inspected to keep the insurance policy in force; if you do not comply with this, you could find yourself without insurance coverage when you need it most.
  • You are selling your home – it is a federal requirement of the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) that a fireplace inspection take place whenever you sell a property with a fireplace. You don’t want to put the legality of your sale at risk due to poor fireplace safety practices.
  • Reduces corrosion – creosote, a natural byproduct of combustion, is highly acidic, and it can eat through metal and masonry. During a fireplace inspection, the creosote is removed, reducing the level of corrosion that can develop.
  • Better efficiency – when your fireplace and chimney are coated with ash and creosote, it can be hard for them to draft properly, which will affect how your fireplace burns. A professional fireplace inspector removes this debris, allowing your fireplace to operate efficiently.
  • Reduces the chance of a chimney fire – creosote is highly flammable, and if it is left to build up inside your chimney, you can be at a higher risk for a chimney fire. An annual inspection will remove this build–up, making your chimney safe for use.
