What's Crawling Around in Your Home's Air Ducts?

June 06, 2016

It’s not fun to think about, but often times dust isn’t exclusively what is in your duct system. You can try and lure the little guys out but if they’re nesting they may not leave their babies. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for a thorough duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is rid of all these uninvited house guests, for instance:

Creepy-Crawlies

There are few things worse than working to kill a spider and seeing it run into the air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is lay in your room and imagine the spider laying all those spider babies. You may even swear you hear some scurrying around your duct system. No worries. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come to your home and give you a full duct cleaning and assure that spider and any of her creepy-crawly friends are good and gone. Babies, too.

Rodents

When rats, squirrels, and other wildlife make a home in your duct system, normally through openings in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes many issues. First, furry critters can leave droppings behind and can ruin anything they come across, including holiday decorations or old toys you’re saving in your attic. Second, rodents tend to chew, which can result in exposed wiring. That combined with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely bringing in to manufacture a nest, and now there’s quite the fire risk in your duct system, your attic, or behind your walls. A complete duct cleaning can eliminate rodent droppings or nests, but you could also need to call a professional animal removal company to remove the furry visitors and maybe an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds normally look for safe and warm places to nestand your air vents meet that criteria. Nests mean babies, which means they are feeding babies, and that means BUGS. If you discover birds in your vents, you’ll likely end up with bugs in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds build nests in your vents, and given the great amount of stuff they use to construct said nest, it can end up fully clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with our furry friends, a full duct cleaning from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can get rid of any droppings, feathers, or other likely illness-carrying leave-behinds. You may also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from your vents or attics.
