Have you been hearing critters scurrying in your chimney? Or maybe a nest of baby birds has been keeping you up at night. Whether it is a bird, squirrel, raccoon, bat, or something else, having an animal in your chimney is never good. If you are ready to have the creature removed as soon as possible, depend on our crew every step of the way.
Hazards Of Animals In Your Chimney
A big reason animals start settling down in your chimney is because it is warm, strong, and keeps them protected from the elements. Many times, once animals discover an open flue, they quickly start to build a nesting spot to raise their young. As you can imagine, this could lead to numerous problems when you go to light a fire next fall.
First of all, these nesting materials clog things up. This means airflow will be restricted, drafting issues will occur, and you will likely experience smoke and other potentially harmful gases, like carbon monoxide, backing up into your home.
Along with this, pretty much all nesting materials are flammable, putting your liner, roof, and adjacent woodwork in a vulnerable spot. If these areas overheat or catch on fire, it won’t be long before flames spread through the rest of your house putting those within in serious danger.
All in all, your system will run much less efficiently, and you will face some major threats to your home. It’s not worth taking any chances, so count on our team to get you set up right well before cooler weather comes back around. When you go to light the first fire of the burning season, you will be relieved to know your flue is clean and working well.
