Because of the reasons mentioned above, and more, it is clear that regular maintenance for your chimney and flue is highly recommended. This checking should be done once or twice a year. Of course, if your flues receive constant and heavy usage, a W.E.T.T. inspection and thorough chimney cleaning should be performed more frequently, too.
Homeowners in Caledon know that when it comes to chimney cleaning and other services, MGG Chimney Sweep is a name they can trust. Our highly qualified chimney experts can do a proper inspection of your system that includes checking of the external structure to see if there are any signs of deterioration. Some telltale signs include staining due to seeping flue gasses, some broken or cracked bricks, and more.
We will also do a visual inspection of the flue. We are equipped with the right tools to detect even the smallest cracks in your chimney liner which may be indicative of a potential hazard.
If results of the inspection show that your chimney may not work properly because of extensive problems, it could mean you need to replace it. MGG Chimney Sweep also offers chimney installation in Caledon and all its neighbouring areas.
To make sure that the chimney inspection will deliver the most accurate results, your chimney should be thoroughly cleaned first. If not, then creosote, soot, as well as other residue might conceal some physical problems with your chimney liner or flue.
