Springtime is the perfect season to clean your home and assess which work needs to be done around the house. This often begins with chimney maintenance. After all, a chimney needs to be cared for after being used throughout the cold winter.
At Best Chimney Services, we recommend having your chimney inspected annually and swept as needed. Many homeowners have their chimneys swept during the spring, and today we’ll explain why. If you’re looking for a chimney sweep in the Greater Boston, MA area, contact us!
Why You Should Sweep Your Chimney in the Spring
Here are some of the many reasons why people have their chimneys swept in the spring.
Time to Address Problems
Oftentimes, chimney issues come to light when a professional is conducting a chimney sweep. Identifying any possible problems in the spring will give you at least five months to take care of any necessary repairs before it is time to use your chimney again.
Spend Now Rather Than Pre-Holidays
With so much gift buying and so many events in the late fall, it is more convenient to spend money on your chimney sweep and any needed repairs in the spring. After all, the last thing that you want to be worrying about during the fall is making room in your budget for your chimney. In addition, most chimney companies have more availability for sweeps and inspections in the spring, before the fall rush for winter preparation begins.
Remove Any Animals, Nesting or Pests
During the cold weather, animals may have begun nesting in your chimney. There may be active nests in your chimney now, pests, or even dead animals. It is best to allow professionals to check for any animal evidence now to avoid spring or summer chimney smells!
Get Repairs in Mild Weather
It is easiest for chimney companies to make repairs before the cold weather sets in again. Therefore, we recommend that you have your chimney swept in the spring so that if any issues are identified during the process, you can have them addressed during the spring, summer, or early fall.
Remove Winter Debris
After the late fall and early winter, debris will often collect in chimneys from the leaves of trees dying and the intense winter winds. It is best to clear all of this out of your chimney promptly with a spring chimney sweep.
