Appointment Tips

Spring and Summer are the best times for non-emergency chimney repair and preventive maintenance. Here’s why:

  • Most homeowners in the Rice Lake area stop using their wood burning appliances when spring starts to arrive – usually in early May.
  • From August to December, the CHIMNEY Manns appointment calendar is booked up to two months in advance – making an “off-peak” appointment is your best option.

Before Your Appointment:
24 hours
before your appointment, remember to:

  • Stop using your wood burning fireplace or stove. For safety’s sake, we need to work with an appliance that is completely cool.

The Day of Your Appointment, remember to:

  • Remove fragile or precious items from the area near the fireplace or woodstove. If necessary, we will move furniture.
  • Watch us work, if you’d like. Customers learn a great deal about chimney safety from watching us work, so we encourage it.
