We have had to rescue a possum that fell down our chimney yesterday by smashing thru the cement fire back behind the grate to access the void behind it.
Has anyone used a fireplace restoration person they are happy to recommend? We also need to find someone to fit the chimney with a device to stop anything else falling down it. Any recommendations would be much appreciated. It's frustrating as we knew who to contact in the UK but are at a loss over here and have been ripped off at times as we don't always know who to ask.
We live in the eastern suburbs closer to town. The very relieved possum is now back in a tree somewhere thank goodness. It had the sweetest looking face and was very scared so I don't regret doing the damage to save it from a very slow death. Besides my children would never have forgiven me.
