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

It’s unpleasant to consider, 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 Bob Brown Service Experts for a comprehensive duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is free of all these nasty house guests, such as:

Bugs and Insects

There are few things worse than aiming to kill a spider and watching is escape into your air vent. It’s impossible to get it now and all you can do is lay in your room and imagine it laying all those baby spiders. You may even swear you hear a few scampering around your duct system. Fear not. Bob Brown Service Experts will come see you and give you a complete duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her yucky friends are out of there. Babies, too.

Rodents

When raccoons, mice, and other furry visitors find themselves in your duct system, generally through gaps in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes many issues. First, rodents can leave droppings behind and can destroy anything they encounter, including holiday decorations or old toys you’re saving in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That combined with the dried leaves and twigs they’re likely taking in to create a nest, and now there’s quite the fire risk in your duct system, your attic, or 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 rodents and maybe an electrician if there was any damage to the wiring.

Birds

Birds typically get into safe and warm places to nestand your air vents meet that criteria. Nests mean baby birds, which means they are feeding babies, and that means BUGS. If you find birds in your vents, you’ll presumably end up with creepy-crawlies in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds create nests in your vents, and given the large amount of materials they use to construct said nest, it can wind up completely clogging a vent, preventing any airflow. As with rodents, a full duct cleaning from Bob Brown Service Experts can eliminate any droppings, feathers, or other possible illness-carrying leave-behinds. You may also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.
