TOPIC: Chimney Cleaning/Scan

Chimney Cleaning/Scan 11 years 10 months ago #36884

I just had my masonry fireplace cleaned and scanned by a specialist.

He was here 2+ hours.

This is the third differant specialist I have used in my 9 years of owning my home. He by far was the most knowledgable and throrough.

The scan revealed several hairline cracks in the flue. Possible fire hazard.

It was interesting watching the scan on the TV screen he had. Very cool!!

The top of chimney damper with a lifetime warranty had a loose, damaged seal. Original plate damper was obstructed by debris at the smoke shelf.

He used a drill with a special wire brush (3 spiral brushes) Fireplace has never been this clean. (At least since I have owned it)

Obtained more knowledge on fireplaces and also some additional verbiage for my reports.

He gave me info on a fireplace supplier were I can purchase products. Just need an business account. (No charge)

I would highly recommend a scan to anyone owning a masonry fireplace. Well worth the money.
