What you probably didn’t know is that fireplace chimney caps keep wildlife from making their home in your chimney. Without a chimney cap or a damaged chimney cap, it allows wildlife like birds, raccoons, opossums, rats, squirrels and other animals that can climb to enter your chimney. It’s advised that an inspection of your chimney cap be handled during your fireplace cleaning inspection.
