    Monthly Spring Cleaning Checklist: Schedule & Complete Chimney Cleaning & Inspection

    Google+TwitterEmailFacebook

    Has your fireplace and chimney been neglected over the last year? If you are like me, I often put off these not-so-glamorous tasks waiting for some mysterious cleaning fairy to do them for me – she has yet to arrive. While I like to think this bad habit is harmless, I know better. A clogged, dirty chimney is not only unsightly but also dangerous for my family. Since spring is almost here, I’d like you to join me for a fun Spring Cleaning challenge. We will be tackling four aspects of our home’s chimney and fireplace health – one each week. By the end of the month, you will have a safe environment for your family to live and play in while enjoying a sparkly, clean hearth.

    Here are the topics we will be covering this month as we look to “Spring Clean” our chimneys and fireplaces:

    Chimney Repair

    1. Schedule & Complete Chimney Cleaning and Inspection
    2. DIY Fireplace Revamp
    3. Restock Chimney Tools & Supplies

    The first thing you need to do is schedule a thorough chimney cleaning and inspection by a licensed, professional chimney sweep. If you don’t already have a trusted partner, use Angie’s List or ask for referrals from friends and family. During your appointment the sweep will typically complete the following tasks:

    • Removal of creosote and other buildup within the flue
    • Inspection of the chimney area on the roof including the caps and screen mesh
    • Examination of fireplace brickwork, damper, and connector pipes
    • Inspection of the flue interior and chimney liner which may include video scanning

    A quality chimney inspection should be completed annually and is best done either in the spring or fall months. With 45 years in the business, Lindemann Chimney Service has a fully-staffed team of trained and licensed chimney sweeps ready to help you check this one of your list.
