Bats

In a sense, chimneys are like a cave. Therefore, chimneys tend to be a prime habitat for migrating bats. When bats make a home in your chimney, they generally are going to be somewhere higher which makes them more challenging to remove. They typically only need 3/8 of an inch to get into your home. Having a bat in your chimney can be a scary experience; give us a call to find out how we can remove your bat problems.

Birds

Sometimes birds find your chimney as the perfect place to build a nest. Unfortunately, birds bring many diseases along with them. Histoplasmosis is a disease that can be contracted by breathing fungal spores from the air. Waste from birds carry this disease, and as animals utilize your chimney, this disease can spread throughout your home. In addition to removing the birds, we will remove any blockage they created to protect you from house fires.

Raccoons

Raccoons love dry places to live, and without a chimney cap, they would love to make your chimney their home. Just as with squirrels, female raccoons attempt to use your chimney as their home. Raccoons are dangerous intruders since they carry rabies and can attack anyone who gets too close to their babies. After removing the raccoons, we will ensure that your chimney is in great condition and can install caps to prevent any animal visitors and save you money.

Montgomery Chimney Care after Animal Removal

One of the reasons animals take shelter within chimneys, is because chimneys provide safety during turbulent weather. Consequently, these animals can bring debris into your chimney, damage the inside of your chimney, and even bring other creatures inside your chimney. Therefore, we will make sure that the chimney is thoroughly inspected so that you can use your fireplace without worries.

In addition to animal removal, we also install chimney caps. Lock top dampers are the most common for your chimney animal needs. They are inserted at the top of your chimney to prevent animals from entering your chimney. Additionally, we check the flue to make sure the animal did not cause a hole in it. As well, we also check to ensure the animal did not create blockage that could increase the risk of a house fire. Furthermore, a lock top damper can save you money, prevent damage to your home, and protect your health. Call us today for more information!

Therefore, you are protected from potential injuries by venomous snakes, invasive bats, and mothers defending their babies by allowing our experts to remove the animal. In addition to all the diseases animals can expose your home to through your chimney, they also greatly increase the risk of house fires. In conclusion, we are here to help you.

Use Proper Fuel

The fuel of any sort needs to be made sure that it is proper for the chimney or fireplace. Make sure the wood is seasoned or properly dried, and when choosing a type of wood, go for a hardwood like oak, maple, or ash. A few logs of greenwood can build creosote thick enough to start a chimney fire.

Proper Installation

Your wood stove or furnace must be installed properly and by a professional. This is to ensure there is proper distance between the flammable parts and the non-combustible parts of the heating system. A wood stove’s chimney must be brick-made (masonry) and factory-built.

Chimney Cleaning

Having a chimney means regular maintenance. Get a professional chimney sweep to inspect your chimney at least annually. This should be even more frequent if the fireplace is lit regularly. You can also do it yourself by using a brush and rods to clean the chimney flue and stove pipe. Most people realize that it does take hours to do if you are not used to do this type of work

Use Smoke Detectors

With the help of smoke detectors, troubleshoot and take action immediately any time smoke is detected indoors. The smoke is most likely a result of a dirty chimney full of debris like dead leaves, twigs, soot, or creosote buildup that have resulted in chimney flue blockage. 

Prevention Tips for Chimney Fires

Everyone wants to enjoy their chimney. Most do not realize the risks they have if they do not schedule a routine chimney sweep. Chimney fires are serious and can lead to house fires. Below are some helpful tips on how to prevent chimney fires from happening.
