A fundamental inspection called a Level 1 inspection is a visual evaluation without making use of any type of special tools. A service technician will examine all the basic structures that are accessible with a hand-held light to see to it that there is no damage or deterioration. They will also inspect to make sure there is nothing obstructing the chimney such as birds nests or debris. If you have not had any issues in the past with regular use of your fire place, this is the recommended evaluation.
An advanced evaluation, or Level 2 inspection, is extra comprehensive. This will consist of everything that is carried out with a standard assessment with the addition of a electronic camera or other device to check the entire flue and internal chimney structure. It would also include an evaluation of the attic and any locations surrounding the chimney.
