"I hear noises coming from my chimney or fireplace!"

If you hear noises in your fireplace or chimney, we will ask you the following questions to help determine the cause:

  • What time(s) of day or night are you hearing this noise?
  • How long have you been hearing it? Days or weeks?
  • Do you have a ranch style house or a two-story?
  • Do you hear any verbal audible sounds?
  • Do you have a chimney cap?

Cause

Depending on your answers to the above questions, the problem may be caused by the following critters:

  • Raccoon
  • Squirrel
  • Bird
  • Bats
  • Chimney Swifts (bird)

Remedy

Temporary measures to take would be to make sure the screen and fireplace doors are closed. Place a piece of plywood or something over the fireplace opening to secure it. Also make sure that any clean-out access hole or door is secured in the basement.

The permanent solution may involve the following:

  1. Investigate CSI (Critter Scene Investigation)
  2. Trap
