3 Tasks You Need To Do Every Spring!

Spring is in the air!

It’s time to bust open the windows, declutter the house, clean out the gutters, and get your chimney inspected!

That’s right! Your chimney isn’t exempt from annual maintenance-there are three things that you should be sure to have done every year.

Schedule a Professional Inspection of Your Chimney Interior

Having your chimney inspected every year is one of the most important things you can do. Why? An inspection by a certified professional can catch problems inside your chimney you may not be aware of. Chimney sweeps are trained to identify issues in your chimney’s interior such as moisture damage, deteriorating tiles, and other internal problems that happen over winter. These are all things that can be resolved before they become dangerous or bigger more expensive problems.

Take a Good Look at Your Chimney’s Exterior

Keeping an eye to the outside of your chimney probably isn’t something that you do on a regular basis. However, once a year, you should take a close look at the area on top and around your chimney. A good time to do this would be prior to scheduling your annual inspection. Your chimney expert can then address the situation and help you determine the steps to get the problem fixed.

Schedule a Professional Cleaning

An annual professional sweep of your chimney’s interior is necessary. A professional cleaning makes your system work more efficiently. It also eliminates build-up of a flammable substance known as creosote, which cuts down your risk of a chimney fire. Why not kill two birds with one stone? Have your cleaning and inspection done at the same time!
