It’s Summer! Time to Clean Your Boonville Rental Property’s Chimney

Boonville Rental Properties Should Have Their Chimney Cleaned Annually

Summer is one of the best times of the year. Summer holds the promise of vacations, sunshine, and fun for a lot of individuals. For the owners of single-family rental residences, summer means you should accomplish important maintenance tasks on your Boonville rental homes. Summer is the best time to clean those chimneys and reduce the possibility of fire hazards down the road for rental properties with fireplaces – before the cold weather comes and makes chimney cleaning much more problematic.

The inside of a chimney gathers layers of soot and creosote with regular usage. If enough layers have built up, it could start a chimney fire, which can damage the chimney and potentially spread to the whole home. The last thing you or your residents want is to set your rental home on fire, yet chimney cleaning is one thing that isn’t always included in regular maintenance plans. Because of this, the correct property management company can be all that separates a disaster waiting to happen and a safe, protected rental property.

Experts in the industry advise that you have all chimneys inspected once a year. It’s important to keep tabs on that soot layer so that you can rest assured in the safety of your rental home. How often you clean the chimney varies according to the level of use, so it might be years before a chimney requires cleaning. The amount of time between necessary cleanings may result in chimneys being neglected and difficulties being identified only after a resident has attempted to light a fire in the fireplace. When it’s cold outside and your residents have a house full of smoke— that would be the worst time to work on chimney issues.

Rather than dealing with liability issues or pricey repairs after a fire has already happened, it makes sense to schedule regular assessments and cleanings for the chimneys of your rental properties. Having proper maintenance done at the right time of year will make sure that your Boonville residents can enjoy that cozy winter fire safety.
