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.

“How can I keep them from coming back?

There are a few ways you can keep animals out. One way we recommend is to install a lock-top chimney damper or a chimney cap. We personally recommend a lock top damper because it is an extremely versatile and lightweight option to prevent both weather and animals. It is made with industry-grade stainless steel, and you can lock it down when you are not using your fireplace. This conveniently keeps rain out, and it keeps animals from getting caught in there.

If you don’t want to commit to locking all those animals out permanently, which we understand because we are animal lovers, you should at least have your chimney inspected and cleaned annually. From an inspection, we can tell you if there is any sign of animals moving around up there and proper cleaning can remove any buildup of animal droppings, nesting material, or just general dirt and grime from animals. 

Protecting Your Health

You may be tempted to remove these creatures yourself, but we really encourage you not to. Animals in Destin carry all sorts of diseases, and in times like these, we want to avoid those as much as possible. Besides just the risk of disease, a cornered animal can be extremely dangerous, such as a Raccoon or a Possum. It is in the best interest of you and the animal for a professional to come out and safely remove them.
