ANIMALS IN YOUR CHIMNEY

February 13, 2011 at 12:16 pm Leave a comment

Sometimes animals can get stuck inside a chimney. Trust us, we’ve seen our share of dead birds, bats and squirrels over the years that end up clogging the flue or stinking up a living room, and are always happy to come on over and remove them so you can enjoy a fire with peace of mind. Once, we pulled out over 20 birds from a single chimney!

One possible solution to this problem is cutting back tree branches that reach the roof of the house, but this won’t keep birds from nesting inside your chimney, unfortunately. A Chimney Cap, which can be attached by a trained professional, is the best defense against this menace, and keeps all critters out – including racoons, which have been known to slide down a chimney and make themselves at home while the unsuspecting family soundly sleeps upstairs.

If you have dead animals in your chimney, or want to prevent it from happening, we would love to come on over and discuss the possible solutions with you. And if you’ve discovered a live creature lurking up there in the dark, call a professional to come and remove it.
