Critters Living in Your Chimney?

We’re Here to Help 

It’s the end of the day, and you finally get the chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy your favorite show or book. But just as you ease into your favorite chair or spot on the couch you hear it.

…scurrying feet coming from near your fireplace.

Or maybe it’s hungry baby birds chirping… Or maybe the mewing of newborn raccoons…

Whatever it is, it’s not something you should be hearing in your house – and the last thing you want is some wild critters gaining access to your living space.

So, what do you do? Well, if you’re in the Charlotte area, you call on the team at Owens Chimney Service. We’ve got your back with our humane animal removal services.

Avoid Recurring Guests By Booking Annual Inspections

So, you’ve got the animals out, and your chimney is free of any debris they left behind. Great!  Now, how do you keep them away for good?

The most important thing you can do to avoid future uninvited guests is get chimney inspections completed before every burning season. This ensures any signs of animals (or their nesting materials) are spotted and addressed, and it also gives the chimney technicians a chance to find the invaders’ potential entry point and seal it.

In addition, we recommend the following actions:

  • Invest in a quality chimney cap.
  • Consider upgrading to a top-sealing damper.
  • Schedule regular sweepings.

Whatever you need, we’re here to help you out and get you set up right. 

Are the Animals Federally Protected?

Quick note – if the animals in your chimney are federally protected (like the chimney swift), these we cannot remove by law. Rather, we’ll have to wait until they have left on their own, flying back south in the winter months, after which we can remove any nesting materials and cap your chimney to avoid them returning the following spring.
