Why Do You Need a Chimney Inspection?
Yes, we know this is Texas. Preparing for the winter is pretty basic: drag the winter clothes out, check the antifreeze, perhaps move the plants into the garage, and stock up on wood. People don’t tend to think about a chimney inspection.
When was the last time you had a professional chimney inspection?
One of the main things a chimney inspector is looking for is creosote buildup- the flammable byproduct of burning wood.
Regular chimney cleaning eliminates creosote buildup and optimizes chimney performance.
Over time, the buildup obstructs the flow of air through a chimney and prevents carbon monoxide from escaping.
It eventually becomes flammable and causes a chimney fire, possibly burning the house down.
Spalling is the deterioration and flaking of the chimney due to weathering. Without regular waterproofing treatment, the brick or stone and mortar will erode, requiring professional masonry.

Just remember- catching the problem early is the difference between a simple repair and having part of– or your entire– chimney rebuilt.
Even if you burn gas, your chimney still needs to be inspected for debris.
Leaves, nests, and the like are hazardous, decreasing chimney performance and causing chimney fires.
