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

You don’t want to think about it, but sometimes dust isn’t all that is in your duct system. You can try and lure the little guys out but they may be nesting and refuse to leave their babies. Call Broad Ripple Service Experts for a thorough duct cleaning and we will make sure your duct system is clear of all these unwanted house guests, such as:

Insects and Bugs

Nothing is worse than trying to kill a spider and seeing it run into your air vent. It’s out of reach now and all you can do is sit in your room and imagine the thing laying all those baby spiders. You may even think you hear some scurrying around your duct system. Don’t worry. Broad Ripple Service Experts will come out and give you a complete duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her bug friends are evicted. Babies, too.

Rodents

When raccoons, mice, and other furry visitors find themselves in your duct system, generally through holes in the duct work and fractures in the foundation or home exterior, it causes multiple issues. First, squirrels, mice, or raccoons can leave droppings behind and can tear up anything they encounter, including holiday decorations or old toys you’re saving in your attic. Second, rodents tend to chew, which can result in exposed wiring. That mixed with the dried leaves and twigs they’re likely carrying in to create a nest, and that creates quite the fire danger in your attic, behind your walls, and in your duct system. A complete duct cleaning can remove rodent droppings or nests, but you could 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 usually look for safe and sheltered 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 bugs in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds construct nests in your vents, and given the great amount of stuff they use to create said nest, it can end up fully clogging a vent, obstructing any airflow. As with mice, squirrels, etc., a completely duct cleaning from Broad Ripple Service Experts can get rid of any droppings, feathers, or other possible illness-carrying leave-behinds. You could also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.
