Chimneys have existed on homes for centuries, a place where the smoke from the fireplace will escape the building. And as long as there has been a chimney, there has been a fireplace service or a chimney cleaning service. Old photographs from the early 1900s show a classic image of young, soot-covered chimney sweep boys, and while no contractor today is a child, this line of work still exists, and modern cleaning materials and tools can be used to keep a chimney clean, or else unclog it of debris or repair it, or even get one installed to begin with. Fireplaces are today less often used for cooking or drying wet laundry and more often used as a comfortable accessory for the living room, providing light, warmth, and sounds. Some homes have a false and electric fireplace, while others have the real thing. Some are in fact a gas fireplace, and an owner can hire a gas fireplace service in their hometown or city.

Some birds are more desirable than others based on their behavior, and as with other types of animals, some birds are either an invasive species, or they are simply so adaptable that they edge out many other similar species in an area. This can be disruptive to local wildlife populations and food chains, and it can also lead to inconvenience, hygiene issues, or even property damage or attacks on people and pets in some cases. Geese, for example, may form very large local populations that may drive away other, more desirable bird species and over-graze on local turf and other vegetation, which can be harmful to an environment. Nature conservation sometimes means dealing with a species that has gone out of control, and for this reason, bird repellent gel can be used in an area to drive away unwanted species to restore the natural balance.
