Now Is The Ideal Time For Repairs

One reason why summertime maintenance is great is because we are given plenty of time to get repair work done. When fall and winter come back around, our schedules get swamped in a hurry, so finding ideal time slots to come in and visit your home is a challenge. Oftentimes, homeowners are forced to rearrange other commitments until a suitable appointment time can be made.

In the summer, our schedule books are much more open, ensuring we can come in during a time period that works well for you. If your repair or reconstruction work is especially demanding, this is definitely ideal! This ensures any chimney issues will be taken care of well before your burning season kicks off, so you’ll be good to go when you want to light your first fire.

Along with this, some repairs simply shouldn’t be done in winter, and we might advise you to wait until warmer weather should we spot them too late in the year. Some of our materials need the opportunity to cure in a certain temperature range, and cold weather won’t give you the top-notch, long-lasting results you’re hoping for. The time to call us in is now! Pick up your phone today, and we’ll be on the job in no time.

Summer Weather Is Great For Chimney Cleanings

If you’re overdue for a cleaning, you’ll likely notice some bad odors as soon as we start experiencing more humid days. When this happens, homeowners tend to crank the air conditioning, meaning the smell from creosote deposits are sent through your chimney and into your home. This is obviously less than ideal, and it makes your entire living space a lot less comfortable.

A good cleaning will reduce odors significantly, and it will ensure your home stays safer throughout your next burning season, too. Creosote is highly flammable, so it’s important to do all you can to avoid excess build-up!

Shorten Your To-Do List

Fall is always a busy time of year with school starting back up and various clubs and organizations getting back on a regular schedule. If your schedule is more flexible in the summer, get your chimney maintenance done and out of the way early! Come fall, you’ll be good to go, and you won’t be forced to put off the start of your burning season any longer than necessary.
