Do you know what chimney sweeps and wildlife removal have in common?
I hope you have taken a chance to make sure that your home is fully animal proofed, Denver and everywhere else is about to get a change of seasons. I say this because the breeding season for most of the common nuisance wildlife that come into contact with humans is coming to a start. If there is a way into your home, it is likely that they will find this entrance and get in to start nesting and getting ready for their babies to come.
Your chimney is an exact replica of a hollowed out tree in the eyes of a mother looking for a safe place to nest and raise their young. When you have a raccoon, squirrel or even birds nesting in your chimney they bring with them all sorts of nesting materials into your chimney which can create great fire hazards in your home. This nesting material can build up over time, we have even seen up to 6 feet of impacted nesting materials that has been added to year after year and which even had previous years unhatched eggs as well as carcasses of other animals that got trapped in there over time.
As much as you may not think that a chimney sweep would be vital to the prevention of wildlife in your home, think again. Getting and keeping your Denver chimney sweep cleaning done regularly will help you to ensure that a chimney cap with animal proofing is in place on your home and helping to prevent animal entry, which in turn will keep your chimney safe from uncontrolled fires.
