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

It’s not fun to think about, but often times dust isn’t exclusively what is in your duct system. You can pull out all the stops to lure the critters out but they may be nesting and refuse to leave their babies. Call Eveready Service Experts for a thorough duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is free of all these nasty house guests, such as:

Creepy-Crawlies

Nothing is worse than working to kill a spider and seeing it run into an air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is lie in bed and imagine it laying all those spider babies. You may even swear you hear a couple scuttling around your duct system. Fear not. Eveready Service Experts will come see you and give you a complete duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her yucky friends are good and gone. Babies, too.

Rodents

When raccoons, mice, and other furry visitors find themselves in your duct system, generally through openings in the duct work and fractures in the foundation or home exterior, it causes several issues. First, furry critters can leave droppings behind and can tear up anything they come across, including Christmas decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can result in exposed wiring. That mixed with the twigs and dried grass they’re likely carrying in to manufacture a nest, and that creates quite the fire hazard in your duct system, your attic, or behind your walls. A good duct cleaning can remove rodent droppings or nests, but you may also need to call animal control to remove the furry visitors and perhaps an electrician if there has been any damage to wiring.

Birds

Birds typically get into safe and dry places to nestand your air vents are perfect. Nests mean baby birds, which means they are bringing food to babies, and that means BUGS. If you have birds in your vents, you’ll presumably end up with bugs in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds construct nests in your vents, and given the great amount of stuff they use to construct said nest, it can result in totally clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with our furry friends, a professional duct cleaning from Eveready Service Experts can get rid of any droppings, feathers, or other potential illness-carrying leave-behinds. You may also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from your vents or attics.
