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

June 06, 2016

It’s unpleasant to consider, but often times dust isn’t all 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 Bob Brown Service Experts for a comprehensive duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is clear of all these nasty house guests, such as:

Creepy-Crawlies

Nothing is worse than aiming to kill a spider and watching is escape into your air vent. It’s impossible to get it now and all you can do is lay in your room and imagine the spider laying all those spider babies. You may even swear you hear some scurrying around your duct system. Fear not. Bob Brown 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 out of there. The offspring, too.

Rodents

When raccoons, mice, and other furry visitors find themselves 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 destroy anything they come across, including holiday decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That mixed with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely taking in to build a nest, and now there’s quite the fire hazard in your attic, duct system, and behind your walls. A complete duct cleaning can remove rodent droppings or nests, but you may also need to call a professional animal removal company to remove the rodents and maybe an electrician if there was any damage to the wiring.

Birds

Birds usually get into safe and warm places to nestand your air vents meet that criteria. 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 creepy-crawlies in your home. But that’s not the worst part. Birds create nests in your vents, and given the vast amount of stuff they use to construct said nest, it can wind up totally clogging a vent, obstructing any airflow. As with our furry friends, a full duct cleaning from Bob Brown Service Experts can eliminate any droppings, feathers, or other possible illness-carrying leave-behinds. You might also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from your vents or attics.
