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

Magnolia Rental Properties Should Have Their Chimney Cleaned AnnuallySummer is one of the greatest times of the year. Summer holds the promise of vacations, sunshine, and fun for a lot of individuals. For single-family rental homeowners, summer is also a signal for you to perform critical maintenance tasks on your Magnolia rental properties. For rental properties with fireplaces, summer is the best time to clean those chimneys and divert any future potential fire hazards before the cold weather sets in and makes chimney cleaning much harder.

The inside of a chimney gathers layers of soot and creosote with regular usage. If there is an ample build-up of layers, it can be enough to trigger a chimney fire, damaging the chimney and potentially affecting the rest of the 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.

Industry professionals recommend that you get all chimneys inspected once a year. Keeping an eye on that soot layer is important so that you will be sure of your rental home’s safety. How often you clean the chimney depends on how regularly you use it, so it could be years before a chimney needs cleaning. 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 take care of chimney issues is when it’s cold outside and your residents have a house full of smoke.

Rather than handling expensive repairs or liability issues after a fire has occurred, it makes sense to schedule regular inspections and cleanings for your rental homes’ chimneys. Scheduling proper maintenance at the correct time of year will guarantee that your Magnolia residents can safely enjoy that cozy winter fire.
