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

Killeen Rental Properties Should Have Their Chimney Cleaned AnnuallySummer is one of the best times of the year. For most individuals, summer offers 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 Killeen rental homes. For rental properties with fireplaces, summer is the most appropriate time to clean the chimneys and stave off any potential fire hazards from happening in the future – before the cold weather arrives and affect the level of difficulty for chimney cleaning.

The inside of a chimney amasses layers of soot and creosote when it’s being used repeatedly. 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. For this reason, the right Killeen property management company can make all the difference between a safe and secure rental property and one that is an impending catastrophe.

Industry specialists recommend getting all chimneys inspected once a year. It’s important to keep an eye on that layer of soot so that you can have confidence in your rental home’s safety. 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 elapsed time between required cleanings may cause chimneys to be neglected and problems being only identified after a resident has tried to ignite 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.

Rather than working on expensive repairs or liability problems after a fire has transpired, one should schedule regular inspections and cleanings for the chimneys of your rental homes. Scheduling appropriate maintenance at a suitable time of year will guarantee that your Killeen residents can enjoy that cozy winter fire in a safe manner.
