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

It’s not fun to think about, but often times dust isn’t the only thing that is in your duct system. You can try and lure the critters out but they may not leave their babies if they are nesting. Call Service Experts Commercial HVAC for a comprehensive duct cleaning and we will make sure your duct system is free of all these unwelcome house guests, including:

Insects and Bugs

Not much is worse than trying to kill a spider and watching it run into your air vent. It’s out of reach now and all you can do is lay in bed and imagine the thing laying all those spider eggs. You may even believe you hear some scurrying around your duct system. No worries. Service Experts Commercial HVAC will come out and give you a complete duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her bug friends are out of there. Eggs, too.

Rodents

When rodents make their way into your duct system, usually through openings in the duct work and cracks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes multiple issues. First, furry critters can leave droppings behind and can tear up anything they come across, including seasonal decorations or old baby clothes you’re keeping in your attic. Second, rodents tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That combined with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely carrying in to build a nest, and now you have quite the fire hazard in your duct system, your attic, or behind your walls. A complete duct cleaning can remove 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 maybe an electrician if there has been any damage to wiring.

Birds

Birds normally find 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 find birds in your vents, you’ll likely end up with six-legged and eight-legged critters in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds build nests in your vents, and given the vast amount of leaves and grass they use to assemble said nest, it can result in totally clogging a vent, preventing any airflow. As with rodents, a professional duct cleaning from Service Experts Commercial HVAC can eliminate any droppings, feathers, or other possible illness-carrying leave-behinds. You could also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from the vents or attics.

Call Service Experts Commercial HVAC now for a thorough duct cleaning to help assure the air your family is breathing is healthy and pest-free.
