Chimney Bird Nest Removal

Bennett’s Chimney Sweep have years of experience in bird nest removal. For the protection of wildlife we generally will not remove a nest in the months of March to August and will only remove a disused bird nest.

Bird’s nests in a chimney are very common but it can cause all sorts of problems. If you do not know it’s there it could be a huge fire risk; causing damage to your health and your property. A bird nest in the chimney will not allow it to “breathe”, potentially causing damp problems.

The best way to stop this happening is to have a bird guard fitted. Please see our bird guards and cowls page for more information.


I have a bird nest in my chimney. Can I still use it?

No. This will be extremely dangerous.

Depending on the time of year the nest may be in use but more importantly there will be little or no “draw” or air flow up the chimney which will mean the fumes from the fire will come back into the room potentially being fatal to someone’s health.

Potentially the nest could catch alight and cause serious damages to your property.

Be safe and be sure to have the nest removed before lighting your fire.

How much does it cost?

Please see the prices & services page for all costs.

How bad could it be?

Surprisingly, it could potentially and quite literally fill your chimney! Below is an example.
