Chimney Problems: Animal in the Chimney
Many St. Louis homeowners call us in the spring and complain of what they believe are “birds” in their chimney. These callers are shocked to find that those “birds” are actually baby raccoons! Yes, in St. Louis, mama raccoons use your chimney as a den and have their litters in there each year. A raccoon can easily scamper up and down a chimney flue tile, as it is just a large hollow tree to them. Raccoons can cause damage requiring chimney repairs to the smoke shelf, damper or flue tiles while in there and our trained St. Louis Wildlife Specialists can remove the offending wildlife, identify any damage for you and provide chimney repairs.
What Animals Most Commonly Get Into Chimneys?
While not known to cause damage to St. Louis chimneys — bats, squirrels,starlings, sparrows, wood ducks, owls and other smaller “critters” are known to fall down these openings to your home and come out through the fireplace doors, furnace vents, hot water heater venting or chimney clean-out doors. Chimney Swifts actually live in chimneys and are the only birds that can fly up the chimney after they enter it. If you have Chimney Swifts, don’t attempt to remove them without consulting a professional, as they are federally protected and special considerations need to be implemented when dealing with them.
Chimney Repair: Get Animals Out of the Chimney
Don’t let this happen in your home. Our chimney repair specialists can install a chimney cap on ANY sized, or type of chimney, and prevent wildlife from using it as a home.
While our St. Louis chimney repair specialists are inspecting the condition of your chimney, don’t forget to ask about the condition of the chimney crown.
