SPRING CHIMNEY CLEANING

April 18, 2018

With warmer weather quickly approaching, many homeowners turn their attention to spring cleaning — washing windows and scrubbing floors.

But too many homeowners neglect their chimney, despite using the fireplace frequently in the winter months. Having your chimney cleaned in the spring by a professional chimney cleaning service provides a variety of benefits.

These benefits include:

– Removing dangerous creosote that adheres to the inside of your chimney. And while creosote is most dangerous during intense fireplace fires (it can catch on fire, spreading to the rest of your home), the tar like substance can emit an unpleasant odor in the hot summer, that can spread throughout your home.

– Identifying any repairs that need to be made after a season of fires. Over time, your chimney will start to deteriorate in the freeze and thaw cycles and other weather patterns. The cold outside and the intense heat of the fire inside can exacerbate any existing cracks in the chimney. A spring chimney cleaning by a fireplace service company can identify these issues and fix them before they get out of hand, costing you more.

– Inspecting your chimney liner, to ensure melted snow and other moisture did corrode your metal liner. If you wait to fix your chimney liner, it likely will only create issues in the future. And if you wait until next fall or winter to realize you have a problem, you won’t be able to enjoy your fireplace until the issue is resolved. Rooftop Chimney Sweeps is a chimney liner installation company that can help fix your chimney liner now.
