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

Mountain House Rental Properties Should Have Their Chimney Cleaned AnnuallySummer is one of the year’s best seasons. Summer holds the promise of fun, vacations, and sunshine for a lot of people. For the owners of single-family rental properties, the arrival of summer is also a reminder for you to do important maintenance tasks on your Mountain House rental homes. For rental properties bearing fireplaces, summer is the best opportunity to clean the chimneys and pre-empt any possible fire hazards further along the road – before the cold weather comes and makes it harder to do chimney cleaning.

With repeated use, the inside of a chimney gathers layers of creosote and soot. A chimney fire could occur if enough layers have built up, which can cause damage to the chimney and potentially spread to the entire home. The last thing you or your residents want is to set your rental home on fire; however, chimney cleaning isn’t always part of normal maintenance plans. For this reason, the right property management company can be the difference between a possible impending disaster and a safe, protected rental property.

Professionals in the industry recommend that you get all chimneys inspected 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 much you have to clean the chimney hinges on the level of use, so it could be years before a chimney has to be cleaned. The amount of time between required cleanings can lead to neglected chimneys and problems only identified after a resident attempts to light a fire in the fireplace. The worst time to fix chimney issues is when it’s cold outside and your residents have a house full of smoke.

Instead of dealing with costly repairs or liability issues after a fire has occurred, it’s better to schedule regular inspections and cleanings for the chimneys of your rental homes. Arranging for proper maintenance at the right time of year will guarantee that your Mountain House residents can safely have that cozy winter fire.
