7 Reasons to have your Chimney Cleaned in the summer

Now that it’s June (and summer!) You probably have thoughts of sitting in some great location on vacation and enjoying the time you’re spending with your family, right? The furthest thing on your mind this time of year is probably the upcoming long and cold winter nights bundled by the fire.

Even though those thoughts of winter are far from your mind, summer is the perfect time to get your chimney cleaned and ready for the long winter.

As Fall approaches, our phones will ring continuously with people trying to schedule an appointment for chimney cleaning services, and this will leave our schedules filled up solid for our certified technicians. During this time, people tend to get frustrated having to wait for a service, as they have to wait past the cold snap to get their fires going.

If you want to avoid the frustration of being put on a waiting list in fall, here are 7 other smart reasons why you should schedule your chimney cleaning and inspection in the summer:

Chimney Fire Prevention

The best way to prevent a chimney fire is to have your chimney regularly inspected and cleaned by one of our professionals. 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.

Problems Caught 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 issues 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.

Do you Have Fireplace Odor?

As the days get warmer, it’s possible you’ll notice 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 experts inspect your chimney for leaks and remove the source of any odor.

Get the Pests Out

The birds and the bees might be enjoyable outside, but that’s where you want them. In fact, the last place that you want them is in your chimney. Having a cleaning done for your home will ensure they have not taken up residence inside your chimney.

Hire a Professional

Cleaning the chimney is not a job that you want to attempt to tackle on your own. Our team will not only get the job done right, but we’ll do it quickly and cleanly. We will provide you with the 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 house. Preventative Maintenance is always cheaper than significant repairs.
