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.

Niceville 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!

Top-Down Method

Where you climb to the roof by ladder, connecting the brush with a pipe to clean the inside by moving the brush up and down. To bring the brush further inside the chimney, connect the brush to another piece of pipe or flexible metal rods. This is a more preferable method due to a lesser amount of cleanup inside the house.

Bottom-Up Method

The method requires removing everything from the room and cover the carpet. Just as effective as the top-down method, but safer. Make sure the damper is open which then push the brush up through the chimney using up and down motions. You continue this method while adding detachable rods until the brush reaches the top of the chimney.

Dull Line/Pulley Rope System

Where two ropes are attached to the brush on either end. There will be a man pulling on either end, one on the roof and the other in the living room. Basically, tug-a-war with a brush in the middle to clean the chimney.

Clean Flue Entrance

Locate the flue, which typically is in the basement; where creosote and soot are collected. Using a spade, you will shovel it into a bucket. Then use the brush and dustpan to clean up the debris from the fireplace and tarp. You will dispose of the creosote and soot by the local laws. In this way, you know that your chimney is clean with a professional and effective method.

Soot Eater Rotatory Cleaning Systems

A system that represents an intense spinning power to clean flues that are 18-feet long and will not scratch metal flue pipes. It is a button link quick-connection system that spins the rod in either direction, allowing you to clean from the bottom.
