We know it’s hot and sunny right now, but the cold winds of winter will be here sooner than you think.

Schedule An Inspection
First things first, you’ll want to get that annual inspection done. This is a really important step to take before putting your fireplace to regular use. Dirty chimneys are more prone to chimney fires, and you may have cracks, holes, or other damage that you aren’t even aware of. You’ll always want to ensure your flue is free from any excess debris and that everything is in tip top shape before lighting any fires.
Fall is a busy season for chimney sweeps, so getting your appointment in early is always a better way to go. You won’t have to maneuver around pre-scheduled appointments, and you’ll feel a big weight off your shoulders knowing this is done. When that cold weather hits, you want to be ready! Call now.
Address Needed Repairs
If there are any issues with the chimney or fireplace, these need to be taken care of before you start any fires. If not addressed, you leave your home more vulnerable to harmful toxins, smoke back-up, and fires. Your flue, chimney cap, chimney crown, damper, and brick mortar are just a few of many things that should be checked over before winter begins.
When it comes to repairs, the sooner you call us in, the better. If we can inspect your chimney early, it will be much easier to schedule repairs, should they be necessary. This is something you don’t want to put off… And if the weather gets too cold, we may need to postpone our work until things warm up. Definitely not ideal! Ensure your fireplace is ready to use whenever you’d like by scheduling that inspection today.
Invest In Waterproofing
Warm weather days are perfect for getting your brickwork waterproofed! This is a service we know you won’t regret investing in. If water seeps into your absorbent masonry, you’ll notice things wearing down a lot quicker than usual. And if freezing temps turn that water to ice, your entire structure will suffer from the expansion.
There’s no point in putting off this service. And at Wells & Sons Chimney Service, we can waterproof any masonry structure you own! Contact us today to learn more about our strong, yet breathable products. Then, ask us about our inspection and sweeping services, too!
