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 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 Heating & Air Conditioning for a thorough duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is free of all these unwelcome house guests, such as:

Creepy-Crawlies

There are few things worse than working to kill a spider and seeing it escape 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 baby spiders. You may even think you hear a couple racing around your duct system. Fear not. Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come see you and give you a full duct cleaning and ensure that spider and any of her yucky friends are good and gone. The offspring, too.

Rodents

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

Birds

Birds typically find 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 find 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 materials 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 Heating & Air Conditioning can get rid of any droppings, feathers, or other possible illness-carrying leave-behinds. You may also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from your vents or attics.
