Having your chimney inspected is not a task you should think about doing – it is something you have to do for the safety of your home and your family. Regular chimney maintenance is essential both externally and more importantly internally, to ensure that carbon monoxide produced by your property’s heating system can properly exit your home. Storm damage, weather erosion, neglect and nesting birds are just some of the instances that will contribute to the dilapidation of your property’s chimney.
From a health and safety aspect, Nova Contracts recommends that a working chimney be inspected annually. Schedule an appointment, and then set it up for the same time every year. Regular professional annual inspections will ensure any new damage or blockages are noted. A basic inspection will allow our chimney professional to examine the readily accessible portions of the chimney exterior, interior and accessible portions of the appliance and the chimney connection. Our technician will be looking for basic soundness of the chimney structure and flue. Our technician can also verify the chimney is free of obstruction and combustible deposits.
