What You Need To Do To Prepare For Your Chimney Inspection

Cool Fireplace

Be sure your fireplace is cool. Don’t make a fireplace in it for 24-48 hours. You may take the ash and put it in your garden. Your garden will love you for it. Or leave it in the firebox and the technician will remove it.


Be sure to leave space in your driveway so the technician can park close to the house. They will be bringing in equipment from their truck. The easier their access, the better. Also, clear a path to the fireplace. Put away toys or decorative items that can be tripped on or broken.


If you have family pets, be sure they are in another room, locked away. We love your furry friends, but they may not understand what we are doing. We wouldn’t want them upset with us. It’s best to cage them or put them in a different room away from your fireplace.

Communicate With Your Technician

 Now is the time to bring up any issues you may have noticed. Anything out of the ordinary such as foul smells, any water that may be leaking, or condensation build up. Write down your questions. Days before your inspection review with your family what needs to be addressed. Our technicians have a wealth of knowledge. They would be more than happy to sit and talk to you about any issues chimney related.
