As the sun sets on the summer of 2022, we’re entering our favorite time of year: fireplace season! If your home is looking a little worse for wear, now is the time to repair. Colder months and harsher weather are on the horizon, making the start of autumn the perfect time to make a few home investments that will keep you and your family protected all winter long.
Your chimney is both a critical part of the structure of your home and a potential safety hazard. A crack in the structure of your chimney or creosote build-up can create a chimney that is a risk every time you light a log. Before you light your first fire of the new season, we implore you to schedule a chimney cleaning and inspection! This way, the Clean Sweep team can evaluate your chimney for any structural concerns and clean the interior. Creosote will be removed, and any water damage, rust or masonry problems will be repaired. A small investment now can prevent a fiery tragedy in the future.
The primary advantage of being proactive with this season’s chimney maintenance is that the upcoming freeze-thaw cycle can exacerbate any existing issues in your chimney. Cold weather is also not ideal for masonry repairs if they are necessary. Schedule your chimney service now for peace of mind to carry you through the winter!
We still have a few weeks of summer weather to enjoy, but the beginning of fall will mark our transition toward strong winds and eventually snow and ice. If your roof is structurally compromised, missing shingles, or your gutters are clogged with debris, the next several months will bring these issues to a head.
Clean Sweep Maryland can inspect and repair your roof to ensure it’s ready to stand up to the harsh weather ahead of us. Your vents will be sealed, cracks will be fixed, and shingles will be replaced. A small investment in your roof now can prevent a steep repair bill in the future!
