Summer is one of the prime seasons of the year. For a number of people, summer claims the promise of vacations, sunshine, and fun. For landladies and landlords of single-family rental homes, the summer time should also move you to work on vital maintenance tasks on your Sandy rental homes. For rental properties with fireplaces, summer is the nicest time to clean those chimneys and stop whatsoever probable fire hazards later—before the cold weather rages in and makes chimney cleaning very much more burdensome.
If used daily, the inside of a chimney gathers layers of soot and creosote. If plentiful layers have built up, it can be the right amount to spark a chimney fire, affecting damage to the chimney and most likely spreading to different parts of the house. The last thing you or your tenants would prefer is to set your rental house on fire, but chimney cleaning is one thing that isn’t at all times included on regular maintenance ideas. Then, the right property management company can be the stamp between a secure, safeguarded rental property and one that is a disaster eager to happen.
Industry experts endorse that you have all chimneys investigated once a year. It’s vital to keep watch over that soot layer so that you can be assured of the safety of your rental home. How many times you clean the chimney rests on the level of use, so it may be years before a chimney will be in need of cleaning. The days that can lapse between required cleanings may lead to chimneys being overlooked, and concerns only arise after a tenant has acted to light a fire in the fireplace. The worst time to control chimney issues is when it’s freezing cold outside and your tenants have a house full of smoke.
As a better action than dealing with extravagant repairs or liability topics after a fire has occurred, you should not neglect to schedule regular inspections and cleanings for the chimneys of your rental homes. Charting the schedules of proper maintenance at the right time of year is a certainty that your Sandy tenants can savor that cozy winter fire safety.
