Spring is here and summer fast approaches! Time for outdoor fun, camping trips, outings to the swimming pool, and… chimney sweepings? You may not light any more fires this season, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you should wait until fall to get your yearly maintenance scheduled. There are countless benefits to scheduling this work early, and we’re here to tell you all about them.
Making Your Burning Season More Convenient
When the cold days come back around and the holiday season kicks off, lighting up the fireplace is often the first thing people want to do. It sets a great aesthetic and gets family members and guests cozy and warm in a hurry. Since fireplaces aren’t typically used until later in the year, many put off sweepings until right before their burning season begins.
This could lead to a couple potential issues. Fall and winter is always the busiest time of year for sweeps. Therefore, finding a time for us to come in that works well with your schedule isn’t always easy. Many find themselves trying to rearrange work and other commitments to try to find a convenient time slot! You may need to put off the start of your burning season for quite some time.
Address Repairs As Soon As Possible
Late schedulers often have problems completing necessary repairs on time. When we inspect and sweep your chimney, we’ll be able to notice any other issues, most of which our team can resolve for you. However, some repairs take up more time than others. Scheduling an appointment isn’t easy when our calendar is already full.
If we take a look at things now, we’ll have months of availability to take care of any potential issues. Most repairs are best done in the spring or summer when temperature ranges are more ideal for our products to cure properly. This ensures better results and, come fall you’ll be able to light up a fire right away with no problems in sight!
Avoid Further Damages
As you likely know, water can cause some serious damage to your chimney in a hurry, which is why it’s important to set up preventative measures earlier on. We inspect your chimney cap, crown, flashing, and more. Therefore, we’ll note whether or not potential repair work or replacement parts are needed well before any issues arise.
Once we’re done, you can invest in waterproofing, ensuring your brickwork stays in optimal condition, no matter what. Avoid the freeze/thaw effect this winter by calling in our team to look things over right away .
