Why Should You Do Chimney Maintenance in Summer?, Morning Star, North Carolina

Your fireplace and chimney may be the last thing on your mind during the summertime. However, it’s actually an ideal time to make sure they’re ready to go for the winter. Getting your chimney cleaned and inspected in the summer can also help you avoid being put on a waiting list in the fall. Below are a few more reasons why you should hire a roofing contractor to do maintenance on your chimney in the warmer months.

5 Reasons to Do Chimney Maintenance in the Summer

1. Catch Problems Early

Can you imagine a crisp, fall evening where you go to light a nice, warm fire and can’t because of a chimney issue? Doing chimney maintenance in the summer can help you catch any problems early on before the weather begins to cool down. This is more convenient than having to wait on a roofing contractor to add you to their list while the temperatures are frigid. 

2. Eliminate Odors

As the weather warms up, you may notice an odor coming from your chimney. Heavy rains in conjunction with a chimney leak can cause a foul-smelling odor to escape into your home. Getting your chimney inspected can help eliminate the chance of this odor and prevent structural damage. 

3. Get Rid of Pests

Bird nests are extremely common in the spring and summer in chimneys. You should clear away these nests in the late summer to eliminate the chance of materials compromising your chimney system. 

4. Ease Finances Around the Holidays

It’s no secret that the holidays bring joy, and also financial stress. This time of the year usually has many other expenses, but your chimney does not have to be one of them. Since the holidays are a popular time to use your fireplace, cut down some of the costs by doing your chimney maintenance in the summer.

5. Avoid Doing Maintenance in Cold Weather

By doing your chimney maintenance in the warm weather, you can avoid having to climb up onto your roof in freezing cold temperatures. It can be more difficult for you or your roofing contractor to do chimney work in inclement winter weather. Avoid any issues with cold weather by doing the necessary maintenance while it’s still warm out.
