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 not leave their babies if they are nesting. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for a complete duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is clear of all these unwelcome house guests, for instance:
Bugs and Insects
Nothing is worse than aiming to kill a spider and watching is escape into an air vent. It’s out of reach now and all you can do is lie in bed and imagine the thing laying all those baby spiders. You may even believe you hear a couple scuttling around your duct system. No worries. Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will come to your home and give you a complete duct cleaning and ensure that spider and any of her bug friends are good and gone. Babies, too.
When rats, squirrels, and other wildlife make a home in your duct system, generally through gaps in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes many issues. First, rodents can leave droppings behind and can ruin anything they come across, including holiday decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, those little guys tend to chew, which can leave you with exposed wiring. That joined with the dried leaves and twigs they’re likely bringing in to build 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 may also need to call an expert wildlife removal company to remove the furry visitors and perhaps an electrician if there was any damage to the wiring.
Birds normally look for safe and warm places to nest, like your air vents. Nests mean baby birds, which means they are bringing food to babies, and that means BUGS. If you discover birds in your vents, you’ll likely end up with bugs in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds assemble nests in your vents, and given the large amount of stuff they use to build said nest, it can result in fully clogging a vent, obstructing any airflow. As with rodents, a thorough duct cleaning from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can remove any droppings, feathers, or other potential illness-carrying leave-behinds. You might also need a professional wildlife removal company to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.
