4 Reasons to Get Your Chimney Swept Before the Fall

By | Tagged with: Tags: , , , , , , | Comments Off on 4 Reasons to Get Your Chimney Swept Before the Fall

Many homeowners don’t consider the state of their fireplace units during the summertime, when the weather is hot and air-conditioners are humming.

Fall is right around the corner, however, and the first cold temperatures of the season are not far behind.

Ensuring that your fireplace is inspected and ready to go before fall arrives is an easy way to save yourself frustration and possible issues with your unit. It can also ensure that you don’t have to suffer through cold temperatures without being able to use your fireplace.

Here are a few reasons to consider getting your chimney swept before autumn arrives.


Get In Before the Rush

The fall and winter months are incredibly hectic for professional chimney sweep services. Homeowners who are due for chimney cleaning and inspection often wait until they are ready to burn that first autumn fire to make an appointment.

Waiting until fall could mean having to wait days or even weeks to have your unit cleaned. Overbooked chimney sweeps can be frustrating for homeowners who are ready to use their fireplaces but have to wait to get an appointment.

You can avoid the rush by booking your inspection and cleaning for the weeks before fall arrives. This will ensure that you can book the company that you trust, and you won’t have to wait for an opening to get the service you need.

Prevent Blockages and Build Up

When the weather gets colder, and you want to use your fireplace, you need to know that your unit and chimney are in working order and that there are no blockages that will threaten the integrity of your your home or your health.

One of the main causes of the presence of carbon monoxide in homes is improperly venting fireplaces. Chimneys that are blocked by debris or creosote build-up can create a back-draft of CO gases into your home. Carbon monoxide can cause serious illness or even death.

Only a professional chimney sweep can properly remove build-up and blockages from your chimney; having your chimney swept before the cold weather arrives ensures that you can use your fireplace immediately, with no issues or concerns.

Get Ahead on Serious Issues

If you wait until the fall to have your chimney inspected, you won’t have as much time to get any serious problems resolved. If you need extensive work done on your unit or if you’d like to get some upgrades to your chimney and fireplace before the cold weather arrives, making your appointments before fall is the way to go.

As we’ve already said, chimney sweeps and inspectors get very busy during the early fall months, with customers who need cleanings before using their fireplace units for the winter. When you need several upgrades or extensive work done on your fireplace, waiting until fall could mean long delays.

For customers who rely on their fireplaces for the majority of their heating in the cold months, not being able to use their units for a considerable period of time can be devastating.

You deserve to have a usable fireplace when it gets cold out; you can ensure this by booking your chimney cleaning and inspection before fall arrives.
