Why Chimney & Gas Fireplace Inspections Are Essential When Buying a Home

As a realtor, safeguarding your clients’ safety and financial interests is paramount. Among the many critical aspects of a home purchase, chimney and gas fireplace inspections are often overlooked yet vital for averting hazards and avoiding costly repairs that could save thousands. While home inspectors play a crucial role, they may lack the specialized expertise or equipment for thorough assessments. This is where Potomac Services steps in to ensure your client is fully covered.

Why Chimney and Gas Fireplace Inspections Matter

A chimney or gas fireplace that appears fine on the surface can hide serious issues. Common problems include creosote buildup, which poses a fire risk, chimney leaks that can cause structural damage, and malfunctioning equipment that may lead to dangerous gas leaks. Identifying these issues early can prevent minor problems from escalating into major, costly repairs.
