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

June 06, 2016

You don’t want to think about it, but occasionally dust isn’t exclusively what is in your duct system. You can attempt to lure the creatures out but they may not leave their babies if they are nesting. Call Falso Service Experts for a comprehensive duct cleaning and we will assure your duct system is rid of all these uninvited house guests, for instance:

Creepy-Crawlies

There are few things worse than trying to kill a spider and watching it run into the air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is lay in bed and imagine the spider laying all those spider babies. You may even believe you hear a few scrambling around your duct system. Fear not. Falso Service Experts will come see you and give you a full duct cleaning and ensure that spider and any of her creepy-crawly friends are evicted. Eggs, too.

Rodents

When raccoons, mice, and other furry visitors find themselves in your duct system, usually through holes in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes several issues. First, squirrels, mice, or raccoons can leave droppings behind and can tear up anything they come across, including holiday decorations or old toys you’re saving in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can leave you with exposed wiring. That combined with the dried leaves and twigs they’re likely bringing in to build a nest, and now you have 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 could also need to call a professional animal removal company to remove the furry visitors and perhaps an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds typically look for 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 discover birds in your vents, you’ll probably end up with bugs in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds create nests in your vents, and given the great amount of stuff they use to build said nest, it can result in completely clogging a vent, preventing any airflow. As with mice, squirrels, etc., a thorough duct cleaning from Falso Service Experts can get rid of any droppings, feathers, or other potential illness-carrying leave-behinds. You might also need a professional wildlife removal company to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.

Call Falso Service Experts now for a full duct cleaning to help make sure the air you are breathing is healthy and pest-free.
