5 Spring Maintenance Tips for Your Fireplace

Post by : Admin


With spring around the corner, it’s essential to clean the house and to maintain your fireplace in particular. Your chimney and hearth have probably seen a lot of use over the past few months, with winter months calling for lots of warm nights by the fire—but now it’s time to clear the air.

There are important steps that you should be taking for your annual fireplace maintenance. Give us a call at (860) 225-9178 or reach out to our CSIA certified team to know more about our chimney services in CT. Spring is the best time for:

1. Chimney inspections

Chimney inspections are important to ensure that no damage or issues have arisen from the months of use. Whether the damage is to the chimney or the fireplace itself, loose bricks, tiles, debris, and other hazards that might potentially exist are necessary to rule out before the next season rolls around.

2. Chimney repair

Chimney repairs are necessary for long-term maintenance and safe use because, without them, minor issues can turn into complicated problems. We recommend getting repairs addressed in the spring because fall and winter can be too cold for safely getting the job done, whereas summer temperatures hinder the way materials cure and bond. Spring temperatures are ideal because it’s not too hot nor too cold, and repairs are more steady.


3. Annual maintenance

You should have your chimney and fireplace maintained every year. You can get chimney caps, hearth pads, and other safety measures put in place to guarantee safety and protection when not in use. Before rainy summers roll around, your fireplace will be sealed and secured till the cold arrives.

4. Chimney sweeping and cleaning

Professionals should do cleaning and sweeping with the right tools, materials, and techniques. Our team has access to the highest quality products as well as safety gear that allows us to access your roof and clean the inside of the chimney to ensure no creosote or other harmful build-up and debris are left behind. This is also important because summer heat can release toxins and poisonous gases into your home, in addition to foul odors. Learn more about our chimney services here.

5. Ash removal

Our cleaning process involves dust, ash, and soot control to prevent messes on your property. Leftover ash and soot can spill out and stain your carpets, floors, and homes. Avoid accidents by requesting a cleanup immediately after winter ends so you can spend the next few months stain free.
