Even though it’s springtime, Fall will be here before you know it. So, its time to begin thinking about your chimney and fireplace! If you haven’t already scheduled your chimney sweep and annual inspection, you should do so before fall.
Avoid the Fall Rush For Chimney Service
You can avoid the “fall rush” if you schedule your appointment before the start of the season. Fall is the industry’s busiest time. Chimney sweep companies experience a high volume of calls during this time, and it’s often difficult to get an appointment when you need it.
If you do happen to get an appointment during the fall rush, and your technician discovers a problem, it will be difficult to schedule a repair. We do not recommend making repairs yourself or hiring an untrained handyman.
Call on the Chimney Sweep Professionals
A CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® (CCS) is adequately trained and experienced in chimney cleaning and inspections. This is not a time to D-I-Y or hire a neighbor or friend. A general contractor is not appropriate for chimney maintenance, so don’t trust your chimney to your local handyman!
By scheduling before fall you will have ample time to have your chimney serviced before cold weather, as well as have any necessary repairs completed. Certified chimney sweeps require homeowners to discontinue use of their fireplace and chimney 24 hours before a scheduled appointment. Though you may not want to stop using your fireplace, we recommend not skipping your appointment for safety precautions.
Benjamin Franklin said “an once of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and he couldn’t be more right. Scheduling routine maintenance for your chimney is a very simple way to prevent problems in the future. The cost of a chimney sweep or inspection is a fraction of the cost of most repairs, insurance claims, and fire damage. Don’t cut corners, because every fire burned in your chimney that hasn’t been inspected or cleaned is one more that might cause a flue fire. Flue fires cause loss of life and property every year in Indiana alone. Don’t become a statistic. Prevent your insurance premiums from rising, prevent loss of your home or life, and thousands of dollars lost in repairs.
