The Best Time To Get Your Chimney Swept

Many chimney owners don’t pay much attention to their chimney or fireplace during the warmer months of the year when they are not in use. Upkeep such as chimney cleaning and inspections are often put off until the last minute which can lead to longer wait times for an appointment, less time to complete any necessary repairs, and other potentially bumps in the road when it comes to getting your fireplace ready for use in the winter.

Spring and summer are the recommended time to get these tasks out of the way and we’re here to explain how early maintenance can save you a headache in the long run.

Skip the Busy Season Traffic

Because most chimney owners are putting off these tasks until winter, most of the highly rated companies will get booked up  quickly making it difficult, or even impossible, to get an appointment. Scheduling your services earlier in the year will give you the advantage of a more open appointment availability with a company you can trust.

Spring Savings

Due to high demand in the winter, the cost of cleanings is going to be higher than in the spring and summer months. Scheduling your cleaning earlier in the year will help you save big on the cost of the service.

Safer Working Conditions

During the colder months, it’s more likely for tools to malfunction or for your chimney sweep to have an accident due to the much colder temperatures outside. Warmer months provide much more ideal weather conditions for chimney services including cleanings and repairs.

More Time to Complete Repairs

Having your chimney cleaned or inspected may lead to the discovery of damaged or missing components in your chimney. The same rule applies in this case where you could be left waiting quite a while for a reputable company to have available appointments to perform necessary repairs.

The sooner your chimney sweep spots these issues the sooner they can be resolved. If you wait until the last minute there is a chance you’ll be left out in the cold, so to speak, with an unsafe or inefficient fireplace through much of the winter season.

A Final Thought

Although it is possible, having your chimney services after the fall or winter season starts will leave you and your chimney waiting longer, paying more, and at risk of not being serviced at all due to high demand and longer wait times. Scheduling your chimney cleaning during spring or summer is the best way to ensure your chimney and fireplace are all set and ready for cozy nights by the fire once winter arrives.
