The best way to protect your chimney and keep it working its best is with a yearly chimney sweep and inspection from an experienced professional. While there is definitely no wrong time to schedule your chimney sweep, spring is the ideal season to have the chimney of your Indianapolis home professionally swept and inspected. Here we explain why to schedule your chimney sweep for the spring. 

Clean Up After Burning Season

Indianapolis homeowners use their fireplace and chimney most often during the chilly winter months. It is best to get your chimney swept and inspected soon after the burning season to prevent creosote from sticking and becoming harder to clean. A chimney sweep and inspection should be another part of your spring cleaning routine. 

Prevent Odors

Creosote buildup may cause odors that penetrate into your house. Removing the creosote right after winter will help your home stay smelling fresh. 


Keep Your Chimney Healthy 

The longer you wait to clean off the creosote buildup, the more damage it can do to your chimney. Spring and summer are particularly damp season here in Indianapolis. When water from melting snow and rainfall mixes with acidic creosote, it will deteriorate your chimney’s interior. Prolong the life of your chimney by getting the creosote and soot cleaned out right after the burning season. 


Beat The Rush

Unfortunately, many people forget about their chimney until a fast-approaching winter reminds them of it. Fall is an extremely busy time for chimney service experts. If you wait until fall, there will be limited spots available and you may have to wait a long time to get an appointment. This also leaves very little room for repairs, should your sweep and inspection reveal that you need them. When you schedule your chimney sweep and inspection for spring, you have greater scheduling flexibility, plenty of time for repairs, and can often snag some money-saving discounts.
