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

Fargo Rental Properties Should Have Their Chimney Cleaned Annually**Updated May 25, 2021.

Summer is one of the ideal times of the year. For many people, summer brings on the promise of vacations, sunshine, and fun. However, for those managing single-family rental homes, summer should also means handling primary maintenance tasks on your Fargo rental homes. Summer is a great time to clean the chimneys on those properties with fireplaces and draw aside certain would-be fire hazards from happening any moment – before the cold weather arises and makes chimney cleaning way more stressful.

Why Clean Your Chimney Regularly

With frequent use, the inside of a chimney is prone to heap up layers of soot and creosote. If several layers have built up, it can be abundantly enough to spark a chimney fire. Chimney fires induce damage to the chimney and might even spread to all parts of the home. The last thing you or your residents like to happen is to set your rental house on fire, but chimney cleaning is one thing that isn’t frequently included on regular maintenance projects. For that reason, the right property management company can make the difference between a safe rental property and a fire-damaged one.

Some Other Things To Consider

Industry experts forewarn that you have all chimneys perused over once a year. It’s important to examine carefully that soot layer so that you can be at ease in the safety of your rental home. How often you clean the chimney depends on the level of use. It may be years before an unused chimney will require cleaning. The interval that can lapse between required cleanings may lead to chimneys being forgotten, and hassles only revealed after a resident has endeavored to light a fire in the fireplace. The worst time for chimney issues to arise is during winter when your residents have a house full of smoke.

Rather than dealing with high-cost repairs or liability issues after a fire has occurred, schedule regular inspections and cleanings. Organizing the schedules of proper maintenance at the right time of year is an assurance that your Fargo residents can feel that cozy winter fire safety.
