A standard evaluation called a Level 1 inspection is a visual evaluation without using any kind of special devices. A service technician will examine all the basic structures that are accessible with a hand held flashlight to ensure that there is no damage or degeneration. They will also check to see to it there is nothing obstructing the chimney such as birds nests or build up. If you have not had any problems in the past with normal use of your fire place, this is the advised inspection.
An advanced evaluation, or Level 2 inspection, is a lot more comprehensive. This will consist of everything that is carried out with a basic inspection with the addition of a camera or other tool to inspect the whole flue and interior chimney structure. It would also include an evaluation of the attic and any locations bordering the chimney.
A Level 2 inspection is the type of assessment carried out during a property deal for the sale or purchase of a residential property.
