By having a chimney cap, Dallas residents can be worry free of birds nesting in their chimneys.
If you have previously had birds nesting in your chimney you know that it can be extremely inconvenient. If you have had birds nest in your chimney once chances are those birds or others will most likely come back.
Birds can be very loud if they are living in your chimney. Sometimes you will even be able to hear young chicks chirping loudly from the fireplace. It will be very difficult to relax in your house with the noise caused by a bird building a nest. The noise alone is a great reason to consider purchasing a chimney cap but there are also additional benefits.
Some birds can actually enter the house through the chimney and cause damage to the home. There is actually a bird called the chimney swift which likes to build their nest in a chimney. You will need a professional to come out an assess the situation and determine the type of bird in your chimney. In the case that the birds are chimney swifts they actually wouldn’t be allowed to be removed. They are protected by law and fines of $10,000 or jail time might be applied if the birds are removed from the chimney. For most other types of birds a professional can remove the bird and install a chimney cap. Dallas residents can rest assured that they won’t have birds in their chimney once the cap is installed.
Suppose that birds are no longer living in the chimney and have only left their nest behind. The chimney will still need to be cleanse for two reasons. One the nest needs to be removed and two the bird feces need to be cleaned by a professional with the proper safety equipment. When coming in contact with bird feces one can contract Histoplasmosis which can cause lung problems.
