Most people associate chimneys and fireplaces with winter. That makes sense since you use your fireplace when it’s cold, of course. But summer is important for chimneys, too!

Chimney maintenance is often neglected until something is broken. But by that time, it’s too late. A broken chimney is a huge fire hazard, and annual cleaning and inspection are crucial to your chimney’s health.

Just like your annual physical with a doctor, annual chimney inspections and cleaning are preventative measures and greatly reduce overall costs in maintaining your chimney and keeping it in good repair. Since you want to use your chimney in the winter, the best time for chimney maintenance is in the summer, before the cold months make you regret procrastinating.
