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

It’s unpleasant to consider, but sometimes dust isn’t all that is in your duct system. You can attempt to lure the creatures 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 make sure your duct system is free of all these unwanted house guests, for instance:

Creepy-Crawlies

There are few things worse than trying to kill a spider and seeing it run into your air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is lie in bed and imagine the spider laying all those spider babies. You may even believe you hear a couple racing around your duct system. Never fear. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come to your home and give you a complete duct cleaning and ensure that spider and any of her bug friends are out of there. Babies, too.

Rodents

When rats, squirrels, and other wildlife make a home in your duct system, usually through gaps in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes multiple issues. First, furry critters can leave droppings behind and can tear up anything they get into, including Christmas decorations or old toys you’re saving in your attic. Second, those little guys tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That joined with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely bringing in to manufacture a nest, and now you have quite the fire risk in your attic, duct system, and behind your walls. A good duct cleaning can eliminate rodent droppings or nests, but you could also need to call an expert wildlife removal company to remove the mice, squirrels, or other wildlife and perhaps an electrician if there has been any damage to wiring.

Birds

Birds normally find safe and dry places to nest, like your air vents. Nests mean baby birds, which means they are bringing food to babies, and that means BUGS. If you find birds in your vents, you’ll presumably end up with creepy-crawlies in your home. But that’s not all. Birds assemble nests in your vents, and given the great amount of stuff they use to create said nest, it can wind up fully clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with mice, squirrels, etc., a thorough duct cleaning from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can eliminate any droppings, feathers, or other likely illness-carrying leave-behinds. You could also need animal control to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.
