What kind of animals are you talking about?

The most common kind of animals you can find sheltering in your chimney are squirrels, raccoons and chimney swifts. They enter the chimney for all sorts of purposes; feeding, breeding, sheltering and just simply keeping themselves comfy and warm during the cold months. This is not a bad thing. It’s just that the parts inside the chimney are very delicate. Once a part gets damaged, a domino effect occurs and everything else gets damaged as well. We are particularly talking about the flue and the flue liner. These two parts greatly affect the smoke and the pressure. Once it gets damaged, bigger problems will soon arise.
