There’s a right time to do just about anything. For example, it’s best to plant many types of perennials in the fall or early spring. In the late fall, you’ll want to take your lawnmower apart, change the oil, clean and sharpen the blades, change the air filter, and replace the spark plugs: all these things make sure it stays in excellent running condition so you’ll be able to use it right away in the spring. The best time to have your chimney cleaned and inspected is in the spring, first, because it’s nice to have it checked off of your to-do list, but there are other reasons as well.
Avoid the Rush
One reason it’s a good idea to schedule your chimney cleaning and inspection now is so you avoid the rush. Let’s face it, many people are procrastinators and will wait until autumn to schedule their cleaning. A great way to stay ahead of the fall rush is to give Chimney Doctors of Colorado a call now at 303-838-3009 so we can get you scheduled for your cleaning.
Find Out About Needed Repairs
Another excellent reason to call now is because you may need repair work done. When we inspect your chimney, we’ll be looking closely for any types of repairs that may need to be completed, big or small. Some small jobs may not take much time to tackle, but if there’s a bigger job, it’s smart to get going on it right away while our schedule isn’t as booked. Also, if there is an outdoor repair job that needs to be taken care of, it’s much easier to work outdoors when the weather is warm and sunny, rather than waiting and hoping for good weather later in the year. If the repair work is going to involve working with mortar, mortar works and sets up better when the weather is warmer as well.
Another reason that now is the best time to bring us in is because clean-up is so much easier when the mess is fresh. Over time, the soot and creosote deposits can harden up, so if we can come in right after fireplace season, it’ll be easier to get rid of that mess. Did you know that, besides being a fire hazard, creosote can give off an unpleasant odor? When the humid days of summer arrive, the moisture can mix with the creosote build-up and give off a bad smell which can pervade your room. This is another great reason to get that creosote out of your chimney sooner rather than later.
