Has your chimney been acting up this winter? Many homeowners go on to forget these issues come spring and neglect to perform end of season maintenance for their fireplace. This can end up costing them lots of money down the line. If you want to do things right and ensure your fireplace and chimney stay strong and healthy for years, you should invest in chimney repair and cleaning come spring. As the trusted name in chimney repair for Eden Prairie and the surrounding areas, we would like to tell you more reasons chimney repair should be on your spring cleaning to-do list.
Overall Safety. Chimney issues can pose a potential danger to your home and family. That is why routine cleaning, maintenance and repair should be taken seriously. For your chimney to work correctly and funnel fumes, debris, and embers out of your home, all of its parts must be in working order. Many homeowners do not even think about chimney maintenance until temperatures start to cool down again and by then even more damage may have occurred. By noting any issues early during the warm season and addressing them before the cold and busy season returns, your fireplace will be ready for use when the cold strikes.
Harmful Deposits. Another reason to schedule maintenance early is to remove creosote deposits that have built up over the winter. Creosote is harmful to your system and is highly flammable. If you decide to light up a fire on a cool stormy spring night, you could face a higher risk of a chimney fire if these deposits are not cleaned out from winter. Creosote can also cause an odor in your house when mixed with the humid air of summer.
