You’ve probably been using this time of quarantine to get a lot done around your house. With everyone under shut-in orders except essential-business employees, residents of Atlanta are becoming home-repair and cleaning experts.
Coronavirus has changed a lot in our lives, but it has not changed your need to have a healthy, working chimney. In reality, there’s no better time than now to get your chimney inspected! And while you’re at it, mark next year’s calendar too because your chimney inspection should be a regular, annual event.
Get a jump on your chimney inspection.
Your chimney was working overtime the last several months, doing its job to keep you warm and dry. Now that the seasons have changed, you should schedule an 18-point inspection from Southern Chimneys now because
- scheduling is wide open and you’ll be able to leisurely find a time that works best for your inspection, rather than fighting to find a time that lines up with a busy inspector’s schedule.
- If you take care of your chimney inspection now, you won’t be scrambling to get it done last minute in the fall or winter.
Here are more reasons to be proactive about your chimney inspection:
Safety – a lack of maintenance can lead to chimney and house fires. A regularly scheduled chimney inspection will prevent this. In fact, an annual chimney and venting system sweeping and inspection is recommended by the National Fire Protection Association and the Chimney Safety Institute of America.
Money – Many homes don’t get their chimneys inspected, and they wind up getting them repaired because they didn’t take that time. Being proactive stops this. You will save so much more money on an inspection and sweep than you will when you have to have major repairs done.
Lack of knowledge – …and that’s okay! It’s normal and happens all the time, but most people move into a home or begin renting one with a chimney and have no idea what condition that chimney’s really in. Don’t let that be you. For instance, how’s your cap? Do you even have one? Do you know what it is?
Peace of Mind – The masonry of a chimney is made to last forever and hold up like a house, so chimney damage is something that you can’t really see and, the worse it gets, the more expensive it is to repair. If you get things checked out every year, you don’t have to worry about it!
