Now if you haven't gotten an inspection this year you really need to. To maintain proper safety and functionality of your chimney, you should have it inspected at least once a year. This means that you need to have it checked out even if everything was running smoothly last winter. If something is wrong with your chimney and you ignore the problem (or you just don't even know that the problem exists), and you keep using the chimney, it could lead to some pretty serious problems. Sometimes, additional repairs will keep stacking up with more and more use. Other times, the consequences could be more severe, such as property loss and house fires. An inspection doesn't take long; it's pretty quick and hassle free. There's really no reason not to get one.
Another integral part of taking care of your chimney is having it cleaned. You need to get an inspection annually, no matter how much you use your fireplace, however with cleanings it is a bit different. As a general rule, we usually recommend that people get a cleaning for every quart of wood they burn. Most homeowners opt to go ahead and get a cleaning at the time of inspection if they use their fireplaces pretty regularly. However, you may not need one if you use your fireplace sparingly. If you're not sure if you need a sweep or not, the technician who services your home will be able to examine the situation and let you know for sure.
