A well-maintained chimney and fireplace could make all the difference when it comes to selling your property. Here are a few things you should do to help secure a quick sale:
- Arrange a chimney sweep. Not only will it confirm that your chimney is fully functioning, but it will also reduce the risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning, giving the new owners one less issue to think about.
- Hire a certified animal removal expert such as Chimney Sweeps of America to inspect your chimney and provide a humane solution to any pest-related problems.
- Now is the time to carry out any chimney repairs or fireplace repairs that you’ve been putting off.
- If your old fireplace has had its day, installing a brand new one could add that extra wow factor.
