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

June 06, 2016

It’s unpleasant to consider, but sometimes dust isn’t the only thing that is in your duct system. You can try and lure the little guys out but if they’re nesting they may not leave their babies. Call Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for a complete duct cleaning and we will assure your duct system is rid of all these nasty house guests, including:

Creepy-Crawlies

There are few things worse than working to kill a spider and seeing it run into the air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is lie in bed and imagine the spider laying all those baby spiders. You may even think you hear a couple scurrying around your duct system. Don’t worry. Pardee 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 bug friends are evicted. The offspring, 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 several issues. First, squirrels, mice, or raccoons can leave droppings behind and can destroy anything they encounter, including Christmas decorations or old baby clothes you’re keeping in your attic. Second, those little guys tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That combined with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely taking in to build a nest, and now there’s quite the fire risk in your attic, behind your walls, and in your duct system. A full duct cleaning can remove rodent droppings or nests, but you might also need to call an expert wildlife removal company to remove the mice, squirrels, or other wildlife and maybe an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds usually find safe and warm places to nestand your air vents meet that criteria. Nests mean babies, which means they are feeding 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 stuff they use to build said nest, it can result in totally clogging a vent, preventing any airflow. As with our furry friends, a professional duct cleaning from Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can eliminate any droppings, feathers, or other likely illness-carrying leave-behinds. You could also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.
