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

June 06, 2016

It’s not fun to think about, but occasionally dust isn’t the only thing that is in your duct system. You can pull out all the stops to lure the little guys out but they may not leave their babies if they are nesting. Call San Antonio Air Service Experts for a complete duct cleaning and we will make sure your duct system is rid of all these unwelcome house guests, for instance:

Bugs and Insects

There are few things worse than trying to kill a spider and seeing it run into an air vent. It’s impossible to get it now and all you can do is lie in bed and imagine the spider laying all those spider babies. You may even swear you hear a couple racing around your duct system. Fear not. San Antonio Air Service Experts will come to your home and give you a full duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her bug friends are good and gone. Babies, too.

Rodents

When raccoons, mice, and other furry visitors find themselves in your duct system, normally through holes in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes several 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, animals tend to chew, which can result in exposed wiring. That combined with the twigs and dried grass they’re likely taking in to manufacture a nest, and now there’s quite the fire hazard in your duct system, your attic, or behind your walls. A good 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 perhaps an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds normally look for safe and warm places to nestand your air vents are perfect. Nests mean babies, which means they are feeding babies, and that means BUGS. If you have birds in your vents, you’ll probably end up with bugs in your home. But that’s not the worst part. Birds assemble nests in your vents, and given the vast amount of leaves and grass they use to assemble said nest, it can end up completely clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with our furry friends, a full duct cleaning from San Antonio Air Service Experts can get rid of any droppings, feathers, or other possible illness-carrying leave-behinds. You might also need a professional wildlife removal company to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.
