Chimney Inspection Important After Storm Damage

In the wake of the recent destructive storm damage in Kansas City and other areass, homeowners need to be aware that chimneys should be inspected before continued use after any severe storm. 

In completing a Level 2 chimney inspection, a certified chimney sweep will check the exterior of the chimney, the interior flue, smoke chamber, damper, fireplace and surround for gaps, cracks, or breaks that could allow escape of toxic gasses and heat. Many of these damages are not visible to the naked eye with out the use of a special camera system.
