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

June 06, 2016

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 little guys out but they may be nesting and refuse to leave their babies. Call Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for a complete duct cleaning and we will make sure your duct system is rid of all these uninvited house guests, for instance:

Creepy-Crawlies

Not much is worse than working 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 it laying all those baby spiders. You may even think you hear a few scrambling around your duct system. Never fear. Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come to your home and give you a full duct cleaning and ensure that spider and any of her creepy-crawly friends are out of there. Eggs, too.

Rodents

When rats, squirrels, and other wildlife make a home in your duct system, usually through holes in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes multiple issues. First, squirrels, mice, or raccoons can leave droppings behind and can tear up anything they come across, including seasonal decorations or old toys you’re saving in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can result in exposed wiring. That mixed with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely carrying in to manufacture a nest, and now you have quite the fire hazard in your attic, behind your walls, and in your duct system. A professional duct cleaning can eliminate rodent droppings or nests, but you could also need to call animal control 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 dry places to nest, like your air vents. Nests mean babies, which means they are finding food for babies, and that means BUGS. If you have birds in your vents, you’ll likely end up with six-legged and eight-legged critters in your home. But that’s not the worst part. Birds assemble nests in your vents, and given the vast amount of stuff they use to create said nest, it can wind up completely clogging a vent, obstructing any airflow. As with rodents, a full duct cleaning from Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can remove any droppings, feathers, or other potential illness-carrying leave-behinds. You could also need a professional wildlife removal company to actually remove the birds from your vents or attics.

Call Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning today for a full duct cleaning to help make sure the air your family is breathing is healthy and pest-free.
