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

It’s not fun to think about, but occasionally dust isn’t all that is in your duct system. You can pull out all the stops to lure the little guys 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 nasty 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. It’s impossible to get it now and all you can do is lay in bed and imagine the spider laying all those baby spiders. You may even think you hear a couple scuttling around your duct system. Never fear. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come out and give you a full duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her bug friends are good and gone. Eggs, too.

Rodents

When rodents make their way into your duct system, normally through openings in the duct work and fractures in the foundation or home exterior, it causes many issues. First, wildlife can leave droppings behind and can tear up anything they get into, including seasonal decorations or old toys you’re saving in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That joined with the dried leaves and twigs they’re likely taking in to build a nest, and now you have 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 an expert wildlife removal company to remove the furry visitors and maybe an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds usually look for safe and warm places to nestand your air vents are perfect. Nests mean eggs, which means they are feeding 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 all. Birds construct nests in your vents, and given the great amount of stuff they use to build said nest, it can wind up completely clogging a vent, obstructing any airflow. As with rodents, a full duct cleaning from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can eliminate any droppings, feathers, or other likely illness-carrying leave-behinds. You could also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.

Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning soon for a thorough duct cleaning to help make sure the air you are breathing is healthy and pest-free.
