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

June 06, 2016

You don’t want to think about it, but sometimes dust isn’t exclusively what is in your duct system. You can try and lure the critters out but if they’re nesting they may not leave their babies. Call Calverley Service Experts for a thorough duct cleaning and we will make sure your duct system is rid of all these nasty house guests, for instance:

Creepy-Crawlies

There are few things worse than aiming to kill a spider and seeing it escape into your air vent. It’s impossible to get it now and all you can do is sit on the couch and imagine it laying all those spider babies. You may even believe you hear a few scrambling around your duct system. Never fear. Calverley Service Experts will come see you and give you a complete duct cleaning and assure that spider and any of her yucky friends are good and gone. Babies, too.

Rodents

When rodents make their way into your duct system, usually through gaps in the duct work and cracks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes multiple issues. First, wildlife can leave droppings behind and can ruin anything they encounter, including holiday decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, those little guys tend to chew, which can result in exposed wiring. That mixed with the twigs and dried grass they’re likely bringing in to create a nest, and now you have quite the fire danger in your attic, duct system, and behind your walls. A professional duct cleaning can eliminate rodent droppings or nests, but you might also need to call a professional animal removal company to remove the furry visitors and maybe an electrician if there was any damage to the wiring.

Birds

Birds typically look for safe and dry places to nestand your air vents are perfect. Nests mean babies, which means they are finding food for babies, and that means BUGS. If you find birds in your vents, you’ll probably end up with creepy-crawlies in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds construct nests in your vents, and given the large amount of stuff they use to assemble said nest, it can wind up fully clogging a vent, obstructing any airflow. As with our furry friends, a professional duct cleaning from Calverley Service Experts 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.
