Bird Nest Removal

We offer specialist bird nest removal if birds have been nesting inside your chimney. Bird nests can be a serious safety hazard if you light your stove or fire without removing them first. So, to keep you (and the birds) safe, it’s best to contact a professional chimney sweep first.

Birds Nesting In Your Chimney?

Bird nesting season corresponds with the warmer weather in spring, when you’re unlikely to be lighting your fire or stove. And a nice cool, dark chimney flue is a very appealing spot for certain birds.

If you can hear live birds nesting inside your chimney, or have discovered an old nest blocking your flue, get in touch. We can advise you on the next steps and responsibly remove the nest when the birds have left.

Responsible Nest Removal

It is important to remove bird nests safely and responsibly, both to avoid harming the birds and to avoid damaging your chimney. Whatever you do, don’t light a fire to try and burn out the birds or their nest as you could start a chimney fire.

Depending on your specific situation, we can provide you with expert advice and a systematic nest removal service.

Prevention Advice & Solutions

The best solution to birds nesting in your chimney is to prevent it from happening in the first place! Make sure the opening of your chimney is fitted with a cowl to keep wildlife out, as well as protecting your chimney from the elements.

If your chimney cowl is damaged or missing, get in touch. We’ll be happy to fit a replacement cowl and make sure your chimney is set up to prevent nesting birds.
