Winter is coming to an end and soon the warmer weather will be here. We welcome the changing of the seasons and soon forget the chill of those cold months between December and March. Often the last thing on our mind is heating our homes. While most homeowners wait until early fall to schedule their yearly chimney sweep, the spring months are also a great time to get this annual chore completed. This not only helps get the unit in prime condition for when the cold arrives again, but also allows you to maintain a healthy chimney through the spring and summer months.
Here are 4 reasons to get your Chicago chimney swept in spring:
1. Flexible Times/Dates
The spring and summer months are a slower time for chimney sweeps, you often have the pick of when to schedule your cleaning. No need to wait or delay in getting this chore checked off your list.
2. Stop Summer Odors
Dirty chimneys are notorious for causing smelly odors when the weather turns hot and humid. Clean out the creosote buildup, so you can enjoy a more pleasant aroma in your home.
3. Get Ready Now
It seems like as soon as winter ends we begin counting down the months until it arrives again. Summer races past us in a blink of an eye. Schedule the sweep in spring gets your chimney and fireplace in working order so that there is no scramble to finish it come fall.
4. Spot Problems Early
Spalling chimneys. A cracked flue liner. Worn brickwork. These are all common problems often detected during a chimney cleaning. When discovered, the best remedy is to repair the trouble spots. By completing the sweep in spring, there is plenty of time to schedule and complete these minor fixes before they turn into costly repairs.
