The fireplace is often what you enjoy most during winter. When cold days and nights are over, it is a perfect time to get a spring cleaning. Spring is better than summer for chimney repairs and inspections. The temperature isn’t too hot. Plus, when summer comes, heat and humidity could cause your chimney to release unpleasant odors inside your home.
But why should you make chimney sweeps and inspections part of your spring cleaning list?
Most homeowners schedule their chimney cleaning in autumn when chimney sweeps are typically fully overbooked. Spring is good because your hired experts will have more time to do their job in inspecting and cleaning, and be better able to answer their client’s concerns.
Avoid Fireplace Odors
Spring is when the weather is not too warm, and you can avoid smells from your fireplace if you have it checked during spring.
More Time to Repair
In case you need a chimney repair, your chimney sweep can identify any issues on your chimney or fireplace because there’s more time to do the work.
Spring cleaning helps you reduce the possibility of corrosion. If creosotes are left on the flue liner, there’s a chance that the moisture can get inside. If not fixed immediately, it will result in serious damage.
All chimneys need to have a flue liner that can contain and exhaust all by-products of combustion, such as heat, dangerous gases, creosote and condensation.
