chimney and fireplace inspection

Everyone should have an annual chimney and fireplace inspection in New Orleans. A Noble Sweep offers various chimney inspection services to ensure your fireplace and chimney are efficient and safe. Regular inspections help prevent things like water penetration and chimney leaks. Our inspections include inspecting the:

  • Grate
  • Firebox
  • Hearth
  • Floor
  • Flue connections
  • Flue termination
  • Spark arrestor
  • Crown (if there is one)

We look for debris, soot, and creosote buildup. If you have made changes to your chimney or venting system or are buying a home with a chimney, you should schedule an inspection. Likewise, if there has been a chimney fire, it must be inspected before resuming use.

What Happens During a Chimney Inspection?

When our crew comes out to do a chimney inspection, we do several things. We make sure the chimney is capped, and the crown or chase top is water-tight. We check the height and examine the exterior for cracks or deterioration. We also check the flashing and counter flashing. The chimney lining and smoke chamber get inspected for creosote and any other problems. We give your chimney and fireplace a thorough going over, and we repair anything that is damaged. We clean the fireplace and chimney as well. Contact us today to schedule your annual chimney and fireplace inspection in New Orleans. Our number is (504) 688-4432.
