7 Reasons Why Summer Is the Best Time to Get Your Chimney Cleaned

It’s June, and you’re probably thinking of warm Summer days by the pool, and the last thing on your mind are the long cold winter days bundled up by the fire. However, summer is the BEST time to get your chimney cleaned.

As Fall approaches, our phones will begin to ring constantly with folks trying to schedule an appointment for chimney cleaning services, and this will leave our schedules filled up solid for our certified technicians. Waiting until the Fall (our Peak-Season) to schedule your appointment can leave you frustrated and without the use of your fireplace when the first cold snap hits. Regrettably, it is possible you might have to wait weeks for an available appointment.

Here are 7 reasons to schedule your cleaning and inspection now:

The best possible way to prevent a chimney fire is to have your chimney inspected and cleaned by one of our CSIA Certified Chimney Sweeps. Don’t skip getting your chimney cleaned just because you waited and couldn’t get an appointment before you wanted to light that first fire.

CATCH ANY PROBLEMS EARLY
Chimney and Fireplace problems can quickly go from small and insignificant to major – let’s catch them early. We will inspect your chimney for any problems that need to be addressed. If you need repairs, we can provide you with an estimate and a long-term care plan for your chimney and fireplace.

DOES YOUR FIREPLACE STINK?
As the days get warmer, you may be noticing an odor from your chimney. If your chimney is leaking from the heavy rains, it may be mixing with the creosote and causing a nasty smell to come out of your fireplace. Let our CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep experts inspect your chimney for leaks and remove the source of any odor.

The birds and the bees might be enjoyable outside, but the last place that you want them is in your chimney. It’s time to have a cleaning done to make sure they have not taken up residence inside your chimney.

DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS ON YOUR OWN
This is not a job that you want to attempt to tackle on your own. This could quickly become a DIY FAIL. We not only get the job done right but quickly and cleanly. You’ll have a peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to worry about a mess when we are done. We will ensure that your fireplace and chimney are in proper working order, and ready for the winter’s first cold snap.

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT
Your home is an investment that can provide shelter and warmth for your family for decades to come. But, like any investment, a home requires regular maintenance to keep it free of deterioration caused by time and weather elements. The same goes for the chimney and fireplace system of the home. Preventative Maintenance is always cheaper than major repairs.
