Everyone loves the warm temperatures of summer – at least for a few weeks. Whether you love it or hate it, the summer months never last quiet as long as expected. Before we know it, temperatures are dipping again, and it’s important to be ready for it. You spring clean to prepare for another year of wear and tear, and clutter. You pack away seasonal clothes in order to find them when the weather changes. We like to prepare ahead of time! You can make sure your chimney is prepared ahead of schedule as well.

Preventative Maintenance

Both the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommend annual chimney maintenance to keep your chimney at it’s safest and most efficient. When your chimney system works properly, it means less repairs, less wear and tear, and less danger overall.

  • Routine chimney sweeps are essential for a healthy chimney system.
    The soot and creosote produced by your fire can coat the inside of the system causing corrosion, buildup, and fire danger.
  • Annual chimney inspections are more than a cleaning.
    They involve a thorough assessment of your chimney system by a certified chimney sweep who is trained to spot weaknesses before damage occurs. Afterwards, offer the homeowner a report and a detailed repair plan. For more information on the three levels of inspection, click here.

Forward Scheduling

Schedule your annual chimney sweep today and avoid the fall rush. The fall rush is the time between October and January in which chimney sweep companies are busy with emergency calls, installations, inspections, and more. During this time it can be difficult to get a desired appointment time, technician, or even the company you want. You can avoid the hassle of the fall rush by scheduling in advance. Magic Sweep takes appointments a year in advance! You can schedule your chimney sweep for next year; and don’t think about it again until a technician calls you to confirm.

Summer Scheduling

You can benefit by scheduling your chimney sweep during the summer months for a variety of reasons.

  • Scheduling during the off season means you don’t have to go without your fireplace before the chimney sweep. Your fire is already out.
  • A clean chimney system means no foul, summer odors. Summer humidity mingles with soot and creosote to create unwelcome odors.
  • Chimney maintenance in the summer means you have several weeks to make necessary repairs. Even during a chimney sweep, an experienced chimney expert can spot a problem or weakness and recommend repairs.
  • Summer work can be easier on the wallet due to tax refunds and avoiding major holidays.

When you schedule your chimney sweep now, you ensure your chimney is ready for winter. Make sure your chimney is ready with the Three S’s: SAFE, SATISFACTORY, and STANDARD. By hiring a professional now, your winter fires will be safe for your family, warm, and up to code! Schedule now online or by phone at 757-523-2400.
