Whether it is your car, your home, your lawn equipment, or your chimney, maintenance is something that is utterly important… and often overlooked until the disaster strikes. Like all of these things, your chimney deserves regular maintenance and inspections in order to function properly and safely within your home.
The best time to service your chimney is when it is NOT in use! This means the spring, summer, and early fall months are prime for masonry maintenance. Be sure to get your chimney properly inspected before turning up the heat in the winter months, a damaged flue or un-swept chimney could spell disaster for your home.
Our lead technicians are Nationally Certified through the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). We hold our sweeps to the standards and guidelines outlined in the Successful Chimney Sweeping Manual published by the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG). We take pride in being conscientious of your home and property by protecting it from soot or any other residue while we are performing a sweep on your fireplace and chimney system. Black Goose Chimney offers two levels of inspection in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards of inspections. A level I inspection is a limited visual inspection using a light. The level II inspection is a more thorough inspection using a closed circuit camera.
After giving your chimney a thorough inspection, we will be able to accurately plan out your next maintenance steps. Often chimneys will need to be swept before or after the winter season, and chimneys may need to be re-pointed or repaired every few years.
