Chimney Video Scan Inspection
For many years, chimney technicians relied on their instincts, a good flashlight and a mirror to find flaws in a chimney system. While instincts and experience are still a big part of proper chimney inspections, we now have incredible tools that allow us to gain closer insight into a flue, finding issues well before they become catastrophic problems.
Think of it like this: If you had a hairline fracture in your toe, you wouldn’t notice it with your naked eye, but you’d definitely want to know about it before walking became a big, big pain. That’s why we get X-Rays. And a Video Scan Inspection is a little like an X-Ray for your chimney system. With a video scan, we get a close look at the entire flue and have video footage and still images that show us exactly what we’re working with. The scan catches even the tiniest detail, so that we can pinpoint small problems early on, and not allow these problems to get worse.
The Chim-Scan® Series 450: The Best Tool For The Job
Blue Ridge Chimney Services uses the state-of-the-art Chim-Scan® Series 450 camera system for all of our Video Scan Inspections. The Chim-Scan system is one of the best tools in the industry. With Chim-Scan, we can get a detailed and accurate view of your flue, and document its condition with video and still images every step of the way. With its 15-inch screen (which is larger than most systems you’ll come across), the Chim-Scan system gives you a clear look into our findings as well, which can help you make informed decisions about your chimney system and your home.
Insurance Claims: The Chim-Scan® Series 450 Can Be A Huge Help
If you’ve experienced damage due to a “sudden occurrence”, such as a chimney fire or major weather incident, odds are your homeowners’ insurance policy will cover it. But you’ll need to have the damage professionally inspected and documented, and the Chim-Scan® Series 450 is perfect for documentation purposes. Blue Ridge Chimney Services technicians can help you with the process, offering clear imagery of the damage and an explanation of probable cause.
