Annual Chimney Inspections in Charlotte & Huntersville
Have you had your chimney inspected recently? Unfortunately, the answer for most homeowners in Lake Norman is that they have never actually received an inspection at all. So, you may be thinking that since many people have survived without a chimney inspection, perhaps it is not absolutely essential. The trouble is that you and your family could actually be living with a ticking time bomb as hazardous particles accumulate within your chimney. Think about it: you can’t see the inside of your chimney system, and when you’re dealing with fire and carbon monoxide, you don’t want to leave things to chance or guesswork. You want to do everything within your power to ensure your family and home are protected from unnecessary threat.
With an annual inspection performed by a professionally trained and certified chimney sweep here at SirVent, you can enjoy your fireplace and chimney with confidence and peace of mind.

You may be wondering whether chimney inspections are actually important for everyone to receive, or whether it is simply for certain homeowners on the overly cautious side. However, many trusted authorities on the safety of chimneys agree that regular inspections are crucial to ensure that your home is preserved from dangerous fires that occur when harmful byproducts accumulate. From chimney-specialized organizations such as the National Chimney Sweeping Guild (NCSG) and the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) to other related groups, including the American Lung Association and the Environmental Protection Agency, all experts state that annual chimney inspections are essential.
Total Coverage with Our Three Levels of Inspections
According to the National Fire Protection Association, there are three levels of inspections that are incorporated for proper chimney safety. Our knowledgeable technicians have compiled essential information about each level so that you can know which would be most appropriate for your individual chimney system.
The three levels of chimney safety inspections include:
- Level 1 – Level 1 Inspections are really just designed to give a quick overview of the system. If you have not noticed any differences in how your system is operating, you are not currently experiencing any major problems, and you have not made any changes to your system lately, a Level 1 Inspection may suffice. These inspections don’t require any special tools, but we do evaluate all easily accessible parts of the system to make sure to prevent any risks in the future.
- Level 2 – Level 2 Inspections include everything in a Level 1, with the addition of a full flue video scan. These inspections are typically recommended whenever any changes have been made to the system or are going to be made for renovations. They are also necessary when a property is changing hands, because these evaluations allow us to see much more than a Level 1 Inspection allows.
- Level 3 – Level 3 Inspections are invasive, and we only opt for a Level 3 when there is no other way to locate the source of problem or determine the system’s condition. During a Level 3, we may need to remove entire sections of the chimney system and the surrounding walls or ceilings, so it is really a last resort to ensure that you and your family are completely safe.
