By | Tagged with: Tags: , , , | Comments Off on Spring Is Coming! What To Look For In Your Chimney

Warm weather is nearly here, the snow is melting, and SirVent Chimney and Venting Service is so excited to help you with all of your spring and summer chimney needs! Most people assume that once the burning season ends, they can shut down their fireplace and put it to the back burner until fall comes back around. This really isn’t the best practice, and we’re here to tell you why! Give us a call right away, so we can ensure your fireplace stays in the best shape possible all year long.

Debris Build-Up

One thing we like to check for in the spring is build up within your chimney. A lot of people wait until fall to invest in their inspections and sweepings, but this isn’t always a good idea. Your fireplace goes through plenty of wear and tear throughout the winter months and when accumulated debris and absorbed moisture just sits in your chimney all summer long, it could lead to decay down the line.

Getting things cleared out and swept away right off the bat ensures your system stays fresher and cleaner all summer long. This not only protects your chimney from breaking down… it prevents bad odors from swooping through your living room throughout those warm, muggy days. It’s an easy choice to make. Call us to take a look at your system today!

Cracks, Holes & Deterioration

As we said, your chimney goes through a lot over the holidays and during those cold nights of winter! You may be in need of repairs without even realizing it. Should cracks and holes be present, it’s important to address them as soon as possible, as these things will only worsen over time. Getting our certified staff on the job right away is your best bet for saving money and stress down the line. Don’t let quick fixes turn into costly repair jobs… pick up your phone, so we can get an inspection in right away!

Along with this, repair jobs typically produce much better results in warmer conditions. Our materials will have the chance to properly cure, and our staff will stay safer, too! Why wait? Call now!

Replacement Parts

Unfortunately, it’s not at all uncommon for some of your chimney parts to break down over time, and you’re most likely going to see these issues after longer periods of use. Whether your damper is rusted, your chimney cap is busted, your flashing is torn, or your masonry is crumbling, our experienced team can help you out! Count on us to get the job done right, so you can use your fireplace with peace of mind, no matter what time of year it is.

Schedule Your Appointment Now!

One of the greatest parts about scheduling your chimney maintenance early in the year is the opportunity to beat the rush in the fall time. Like we said, most homeowners wait until the last minute to get their inspections done, and should they need repairs, they get stuck waiting around until we can schedule their next appointment. We don’t want you to have to wait to use your fireplace when cooler temps come back around! Get your chimney work done now, so you can rest easy when the leaves start to drop this autumn.
