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

You don’t want to think about it, but often times dust isn’t all that is in your duct system. You can attempt to lure the little guys out but they may not leave their babies if they are nesting. Call Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts for a thorough duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is free of all these uninvited house guests, including:

Bugs and Insects

Not much is worse than aiming to kill a spider and seeing it run into the air vent. It’s impossible to get it now and all you can do is sit on the couch and imagine the thing laying all those baby spiders. You may even believe you hear some scurrying around your duct system. Don’t worry. Roy Inch & Sons 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 out of there. Babies, too.

Rodents

When rodents make their way into your duct system, generally through gaps in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes multiple issues. First, rodents can leave droppings behind and can ruin anything they encounter, including Christmas decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, rodents tend to chew, which can leave you with exposed wiring. That joined with the twigs and dried grass they’re likely taking in to manufacture 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 get rid of rodent droppings or nests, but you might also need to call animal control to remove the mice, squirrels, or other wildlife and possibly an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds typically find safe and dry 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 probably end up with creepy-crawlies in your home. But that’s not all. Birds assemble nests in your vents, and given the large amount of leaves and grass they use to build said nest, it can wind up fully clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with rodents, a professional duct cleaning from Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts can get rid of any droppings, feathers, or other potential illness-carrying leave-behinds. You might also need animal control to actually remove the birds from your vents or attics.
