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

Clearwater Rental Properties Should Have Their Chimney Cleaned Annually

One of the best times of the year is summer. For most individuals, summer gives the promise of sunshine, vacations, and fun. For the owners of single-family rental residences, summer means you should accomplish important maintenance tasks on your Clearwater rental homes. For rental properties with fireplaces, summer is the best time to clean the chimneys and stave off any possible fire hazards from happening in the future—before the cold weather arrives and makes cleaning the chimney more difficult.

The inside of a chimney gathers layers of creosote and soot with repeated use. If enough layers have built up, it could cause a chimney fire, which can damage the chimney and possibly spread to the whole home. Even if setting your rental house on fire is the last thing you or your tenants want, chimney cleaning is not always covered by regular maintenance plans. Because of this, the right property management company can be all that makes the difference between a safe and secure rental property and one that is an impending disaster.

Industry professionals recommend that you have all chimneys examined once a year. It’s vital to keep track of that soot layer so that you can feel sure of the safety of your rental home. How often you have to clean the chimney depends on the level of use, so it could be years before a chimney needs to be cleaned. The amount of time between necessary cleanings may result in chimneys being neglected and complications being recognized only after a tenant has attempted to light a fire in the fireplace. The worst time to take care of chimney issues is when it’s cold outside and your tenants have a house full of smoke.

Rather than handling costly repairs or liability issues after a fire has happened, it makes sense to schedule regular inspections and cleanings for your rental homes’ chimneys. Getting proper maintenance at the right time of year will ensure that your Clearwater tenants can benefit from that cozy winter fire safety.
