6 Reasons Why You Need A Spring Chimney Inspection

It's spring…almost summer and the last thing you are thinking about is your fireplace and chimney. Right? We get it! However, NOW is the BEST time to have your chimney cleaned and inspected.  Here are six reasons why.

During an inspection and cleaning professionals check the entire system.  They can spot minor problems before they turn into a major costly projects. Also, if there is an issue that needs to be addressed, you’ll have plenty of time to get it repaired before the cool nights of Fall begin. 

Repairs in the fall or winter can be more difficult. It’s the busiest time of year for professional certified chimney sweep companies. Plus, colder weather will delay outside chimney repairs.

You will have less of a wait time to get your chimney inspected and swept. Beginning in September, on through the fall and into winter, you may have to wait weeks for a Nationally Certified Chimney Sweep company to come to your home. The pros are in high demand during peak fireplace season.

If you have soot and creosote build-up you may experience a smelly “camp-fire” odor from your fireplace in the summer.  Heat and humidity during the summer months will cause these unpleasant odors to be released in your home. Prevent it now by having your chimney swept and inspected.

You can ease any financial stress associated with winter holidays by making needed chimney and fireplace repairs during the spring and summer. Plus, prices go up in the Fall. 

You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your chimney is ready for the fall and winter when it comes. All you have to do then is sit back and make warm memories around your fireplace.
