It is important to check for any animals like owls, pigeons, raccoon and woodpeckers that may have occupied your chimney. The best time to check for them is at the beginning of the winter before you light the first fire. Creosote accumulation near animal nests can cause even greater danger with increased chances of house fires and damage. It is a good idea to install rain caps to keep animals from making a home in your chimney.
