Common Animals To Invade Chimneys

Hazards/Problems with Animals Being in a Chimney

Finding refuge within the chimney can be advantageous for certain creatures, while others might find themselves ensnared. Animals often present challenges for homeowners, manifesting as noise and disorder through the residue of droppings and food scraps they leave behind. They have the potential to obstruct the chimney with their chosen nesting materials, impeding the escape of smoke and increasing the risk of a fire. Such blockages can elevate the danger of carbon monoxide accumulation within the household.

Moreover, there’s an increased likelihood of these creatures gaining access to your residence. Unlike humans, animals don’t engage in bathing rituals, leading to odors, and their excrement poses similar issues. The scent can intensify if the animal becomes trapped and perishes within. These creatures carry diseases on their fur and in their waste, which can contaminate the surroundings and pose a health hazard to the household. Most active during the night, these animals can be a source of inconvenience for homeowners.

Removing Animals

Animals of any kind are to be removed by a professional. There are many threats these animals can cause to someone who does not know what they are doing. These creatures can be easily scared in places where they will become stuck and die. If there is an animal carcass, it is best to have it removed professionally as there are potential health hazards.

  • Birds
    • For warmth and protection, birds will build their nests inside chimneys. The Chimney swift, a smaller species, tend to build their nests on the flue lines while larger species will build their nests on the damper or smoke shelf. With the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, it is against the law to remove nesting birds. You will have to wait for the brood, or young birds, to leave. If there are reasons you cannot wait for the broods to leave then it is best to seek out local wildlife officers/services. This must be done before a professional can clean your chimney and install a heavy-duty stainless steel chimney cap.
  • Raccoons
    • Nocturnal and known for their aggressive attitudes, raccoons are hard to remove from chimneys. One bite can cause rabies, and possibly roundworms. These critters, in particular, need to be removed by a professional only. Black steel and aluminum are no match for these critters as they are able to breakthrough. The best solution to keep them locked out is to install a heavy-duty stainless steel chimney cover.

Prevention

  • Bats
    • Excellent for warmth and shelter, bats will look hard for places like a chimney. Another animal that carries rabies, it is best to have removed by a professional. Though it is hard to keep them out due they are able to fit through bird screens or open mortar joints in the brickwork. The installation of a damper and chimney cap can help prevent bats from getting into the home.
  • Squirrels
    • Squirrels are notorious for building their nests in chimneys and tend to make them extremely tight. These normally will block the ventilation of the chimney flue causing a chimney fire. Squirrels are known for climbing through the dampers entering the home. The best way to prevent their entry is to have a professional install a heavy stainless steel chimney cover.

Are you detecting sounds of wildlife emanating from your chimney? It’s crucial to take swift action. Various types of animals could potentially infiltrate your chimney, posing potential hazards. It’s imperative not to ignite a fire in your chimney unless you’ve undergone an annual chimney sweep.

Engaging in an annual chimney sweep serves not only to prevent critters from gaining entry to your residence but also to eliminate the unpleasant odors that can arise from lighting a fire without prior removal of these animals or their waste.

Reach out to your local chimney service promptly to delve into the significance of scheduling an annual sweep. You might even consider conducting it twice a year for an additional layer of precaution.
