Animal Removal

Animal Removal from a chimney is an important, and not-so-fun task to do on your own – here’s whet you need to know about animal removal and how Midtown Chimney Sweeps can prevent further chimney intrusion from raccoons, birds and even coyotes!

How animals get in your chimney -and how Midtown gets them out

One of the most common reasons animals get into your chimney (and sometimes your living room) is due to not having a chimney cap or being unaware that your chimney cap is damaged  or improperly installed. The best way to make sure those cute, but oh-so-pesky critters, don’t take up residence in your chimney is by having  a properly-fitted chimney cap. Midtown Chimney Sweeps performs this service in addition to sweeping your chimney after the animal has been removed. Animals tend to leave behind nesting debris as well as biological waste that can be harmful to you and your family, as well as a fire-hazard if not removed efficiently.

Removing dead animals is usually a straight forward process.  For live animals, (depending on the the type of animal and the situation) we use a potent, non-toxic humane solution to ward off the animal when they  won’t budge on their own – even after being startled by the technician. (Sometimes this method requires a return visit) We also employ a method to get smaller animals, like chipmunks,  to leave on their own if they are unable to climb the walls of the chimney by themselves

Midtown Chimney Sweeps offers animal removal as a stand-alone service or as an add-on to getting your chimney swept – make sure to listen carefully and take a peek up your chimney to see if it’s been hosting any un-invited guests.!

Chimney Inspected for Animals

At Midtown Chimney Sweeps we wish to help your home be safe from invaders and pests. Keep a chimney cap with an appropriately sized spark arrestor installed on it. The size of the spark arrestor openings depends on the state you are in and the fire risk zone within that state. All mammals will be prevented from entering your chimney if you use any appropriately sized spark arrestor. However, wasps and bees may still enter through a standard spark arrestor. Therefore Midtown Chimney Sweeps provides top seal dampers for protecting your chimney from small insect invaders.

After Removing a live Animal from the Chimney

The most common animals removed from chimneys are squirrels and raccoons, both of which like heights and climbing. After removing the animal from your chimney, your Midtown Chimney Sweeps Certified Chimney Professional will recommend an appropriately sized chimney cap to prevent the scenario from recurring. Please ask your local technician about pricing for chimney caps installed, and also about the top seal damper option!

Midtown Chimney Sweeps Technicians do not remove live animals with traps or gloves, etc for safety reasons. If you have an emergency need to remove a live animal from your chimney, please contact a live animal removal specialist, or visit here for more information.

    Jason Allen came out to clean and inspect my chimney and wood burning stove. He did an outstanding job. He explained what he was doing and why. He showed me how the stove worked and was very careful to make no mess. He even went up on my roof to check the chimney from outside. I highly recommend, Midtown Chimney Sweeps and Jason Allen!

    Had them come to do a chimney sweep and dryer vent clean for a condo I just purchased. They were efficient and amazingly helpful, performing the chimney sweep efficiently and going way above and beyond on the dryer vent clean! They found a bird's nest that had been lodged in the dryer vents and was a possible fire hazard - and took care of it and cleaned everything perfectly. I will definitely use them again for future annual chimney sweeps and would highly recommend the to anyone around! Thank you so much!

    Tikar was really professional, punctual and got straight to work. He answered all of my questions and gave me some helpful info about the wood burning stove since I've never used one before. Thank you, Tikar!

    I've used these guys twice and had an excellent experience both time. Scheduling is easy and communication with the company is very professional. They were very conscientious about putting down drop cloths and keeping everything clean. And they went way above and beyond providing excellent service. I had bought a remote for our propane fireplace a year before and never installed it for myself. When Midtown installed it and it didn't work right away, they personally took it back the place from whom I'd made the purchase to troubleshoot before returning to complete the installation. And spent a ton of extra time on the return trip because they discovered a gasket on that fireplace needed to be replaced and they did it right then and there. I can't say enough good things about these guys!

    My experience with Midtown Sweeps was primarily through their employee, Jason Allen, who was polite, efficient and knowledgeable. The top of one of my fireplace chimneys had blown off during a major windstorm which is common in Evergreen. I also had a problem with a woodpecker getting in the chimney and wood-pecking on it at all times of the day and night. Jason efficiently climbed on the roof and replaced the chimney top and we had a fun discussion about woodpeckers. If Jason represents Midtown Sweeps as a typical employee, then I recommend the company at a high level and would recommend the company to anyone who needs chimney support.
