Fireplace and Chimney Maintenance During Spring

Fireplace and Chimney Maintenance During Spring

“Hi, my name is Raquel. I recently moved to a new house in Cumming, GA. I like to keep my property well-maintained and looking for advice. My previous property didn’t have a fireplace so I’m not sure when’s the best time to carry out the maintenance for the fireplace and chimney of my home. People usually do it right before the winter, but I read in a magazine that spring and early summer is the best time to conduct an annual inspection and cleaning of these areas. Kindly advise. Thanks!”
