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

It’s unpleasant to consider, but occasionally dust isn’t all that is in your duct system. You can pull out all the stops to lure the creatures out but they may not leave their babies if they are nesting. Call All American Air Service Experts for a comprehensive duct cleaning and we will make sure your duct system is free of all these unwanted house guests, such as:

Insects and Bugs

There are few things worse than working to kill a spider and watching is escape into your air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is lay in bed and imagine it laying all those spider babies. You may even think you hear some scampering around your duct system. No worries. All American Air Service Experts will come out and give you a full duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her creepy-crawly friends are good and gone. Eggs, too.

Rodents

When rodents make their way into your duct system, commonly through gaps in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes several issues. First, wildlife can leave droppings behind and can tear up anything they get into, including Christmas decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, rodents tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That joined with the twigs and dried grass 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 good duct cleaning can get rid of rodent droppings or nests, but you may also need to call animal control to remove the rodents and perhaps an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds typically look for safe and dry places to nestand your air vents are perfect. Nests mean baby birds, which means they are finding food for babies, and that means BUGS. If you have birds in your vents, you’ll probably end up with creepy-crawlies in your home. But that’s not all. Birds create nests in your vents, and given the vast amount of leaves and grass they use to create said nest, it can wind up completely clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with our furry friends, a thorough duct cleaning from All American Air 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 the vents or attics.
