Best Time Of Year For A Chimney Cleaning
Being in upstate New York, making sure your fireplace is ready to go for snow-filled winters is probably a top priority. But, oftentimes, we don’t even think about the maintenance side of having a fireplace. While it’s important to schedule an annual cleaning to ensure safe and efficient fires, you may not know when the best time is to schedule that maintenance.
Surprisingly, chimney maintenance should be thought of in the spring or summertime. You may be scratching your head wondering why. We know you won’t be having many fires during this time of year, but it’ll set you up to be prepared for the colder months. On top of ensuring a safe and clean environment for your wintertime fires, there are a few other reasons to consider an earlier cleaning. We’ll outline some of those reasons below!
Be ready for the cold
There’s a reason why early bird catches the worm is a saying. Not only will an early cleaning take one thing off your long to do list, but it’ll ensure you’re ready for cold weather as early is it may creep up. Really chilly night in September? No worries if you already got your annual cleaning done.
Be ahead of the curve
Just as you may be surprised to hear you should think about this earlier, so might everyone else. That means most people are likely booking up the fall/early winter cleaning spots and you may struggle to even find an opening if you wait too long. If it’s a yearly obligation (as it should be due to the safety reasons), you might as well book when there are plenty of openings to work with your schedule.
Less demand = more money in your pocket
When schedules fill up, demand rises and so do prices. This is the case for annual chimney inspections, too. The closer you get to the desired scheduling date; the more prices will rise as well. So do yourself a favor and plan to book you
Safer for our workers
When chimney professionals clean a chimney, they have to go on the roof. If weather is bad – especially in the winter with snow – it is much more of a risk to complete the cleaning. Even if it’s not snowing the day of your appointment, accumulated snow is an added obstacle to complete their task.
