It sounds quite ridiculous to clean and inspect your chimney in the middle of summer when it is 90 degrees outside, right? The fact is, a chimney is a part of your roof and the summer months are the downtime for chimney sweeps in areas like Southern California. There is never a better time to do flashing repairs or chimney pan replacements than in the summer months when the risk of rain is minimal.
If your fireplace is used in the winter months, it is a very good idea to do an annual chimney sweep and inspection once a year to ensure your family’s safety. We recommend having a certified chimney sweep do the inspection and cleaning.
This is also a great time to coordinate having your roofer do an annual roof tune-up on your roof. Your professional roofer and chimney sweep can coordinate any necessary repairs where the roof ties into the chimney, and together they can help in prolonging the life of both your chimney and roof.
