Problems with birds’ nests not being removed from the chimney
Birds build their nests out of flammable materials such as straw, sticks or roots. If the fire from the chimney reaches the nest, there is a high probability that a fire will start.
Accumulation of gases
Birds’ nests can shed branches and other items that clog the chimney flues, causing gases to build up, increasing the likelihood of a chimney flare-up.
Birds’ nests can shed branches and other elements that make our chimney dirty. Therefore, it is very important to have Your Chimney Sweeper to avoid all these inconveniences.
“NEVER light a chimney if there are suspected bird nests in the installation. This could lead to a fire, poisoning inside the house due to the accumulation of carbon monoxide or damage to the birds”.
