    Are you ready to sell your home?  While you may have already begun making the property “show-perfect” have you taken time to ensure the chimney is ready too?  A poor chimney inspection may leave more wiggle room for the buyer’s to negotiate down the price or could ruin the deal all together.  Taking proactive steps before you list can prove instrumental in a successful sale. 

    Lake Forest HomeThe best way to ensure your chimney and fireplace are up to par is to hire a certified chimney sweep to inspect and clean the unit.  During this process they will remove harmful creosote from the flue while also examining the chimney’s interior.  Many often also use specialized video inspection equipment to get a closer look at the condition of the flue’s interior. 

    Once inspected, the contractor can inform you of any major concerns that may halt a home sale from proceeding.  Structural damage, failing brickwork, or cracked flue tiles should be replaced making the fireplace safe to use for the next homeowner.  The technician may also suggest additional steps you could take to add further enhancements to the home such as a chimney damper or cap.
