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

It’s unpleasant to consider, but often times dust isn’t the only thing that is in your duct system. You can attempt to lure the critters out but if they’re nesting they may not leave their babies. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for a complete duct cleaning and we will assure your duct system is free of all these unwelcome house guests, including:

Creepy-Crawlies

Not much is worse than aiming to kill a spider and watching is escape into your air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is sit on the couch and imagine the spider laying all those baby spiders. You may even think you hear a couple scampering around your duct system. Don’t worry. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come to your home and give you a full duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her creepy-crawly friends are out of there. Babies, too.

Rodents

When rodents make their way into your duct system, normally through openings in the duct work and cracks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes many issues. First, wildlife can leave droppings behind and can ruin anything they come across, including Christmas decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That mixed with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely bringing in to manufacture a nest, and now you have quite the fire danger in your duct system, your attic, or behind your walls. A thorough duct cleaning can get rid of rodent droppings or nests, but you might also need to call an expert wildlife removal company to remove the rodents and possibly an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds usually find safe and dry places to nestand your air vents are perfect. Nests mean baby birds, which means they are finding food for babies, and that means BUGS. If you discover birds in your vents, you’ll probably end up with creepy-crawlies in your home. But that’s not the worst part. Birds build nests in your vents, and given the great amount of materials they use to create said nest, it can result in completely clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with mice, squirrels, etc., a professional duct cleaning from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can get rid of any droppings, feathers, or other likely illness-carrying leave-behinds. You might also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.
