Long Island, New York (PRWEB) October 13, 2013
Alliance Chimney of Long Island, a fully licensed and insured provider of chimney cleaning service and repairs to Nassau, Suffolk and Queens for over 20 years, is stressing the dangers and health risks of animal infiltration of home chimneys and urging homeowners to take necessary steps to prevent health issues for family members.
With the end of the summer and cooler weather becoming the norm, homeowners are looking to their home’s heating system to provide healthy, regular heat so that the transition to winter months is stress free. However, chimneys that may have served as homes to uninvited members of local wildlife present serious health concerns for the family as the home heating system use increases.
Most homeowners understand that a partial blockage caused by a nest in their chimney will impair the proper functionality of their heating system and that a full blockage raises the risk of dangerous levels of carbon-monoxide developing within the home. But it is the secondary issues caused by the wildlife infiltration that are equally worrying for their potential impact on family health. Bird nests invariable contain various excrement remains from the birds, which raises the risk of bacterial infiltration of the chimney, the heating system and eventually the entire house. Additionally, squirrels and other furry creatures who may have taken up residence will leave behind fur that they have shed. These fur deposits can bring mites along with bacteria, both of which raise health concerns not only for the family but also family pets.
The team at Alliance Chimney advises their customers and all Long Island homeowners to seek out experienced chimney cleaning companies, like Alliance Chimney, who have specialized knowledge of all the intricacies of wildlife-related blockage removal and cleaning. Additionally, it is advised that if the chimney does not have a cap that one be professionally installed after cleaning to eliminate future blockages by both wildlife and other debris-related causes.
