The NFPA recommends homeowners in Hampstead, MD, and surrounding areas have annual chimney inspections. A chimney inspection is vital to ensuring a safe and efficient chimney system. Our certified technicians are trained to perform all three levels of chimney inspections in Hampstead and throughout Maryland.
Level 1: This is the basic visual inspection that is recommended annually for most homeowners.
Level 2: Also known as a real estate chimney inspection, a level 2 inspection is required before the sale or transfer of real property. It is also required whenever there have been any modifications to the chimney, vents, connected heating appliances, or a chimney fire.
Level 3: This in-depth examination is necessary when a potentially serious issue is discovered during a level 1 or level 2 inspection that requires the technician to gain entry to an inaccessible portion of the chimney system.
It is a well-known fact that a clean chimney is a safe chimney. That’s why the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and fire chiefs from across the country encourage homeowners in Taneytown and throughout Maryland to clean their chimneys, attached heating appliances, and vents annually.
Our professional chimney cleaning service is safe, efficient, and affordable. A CSIA-Certified Chimney Sweep will thoroughly clean the entire chimney system, including any attached heating appliances, to remove hardened creosote, soot, and other debris that can increase the risk of fire and damage the chimney and its components. We also remove any flue blockages, so toxic carbon monoxide fumes don’t back-up into your living space.
There are multiple entry points, including the flashing, chimney crown, damper, and masonry, where water can potentially leak inside the chimney.

- Chimney crown cracks
