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

You don’t want to think about it, but often times dust isn’t exclusively what 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 Neal Harris Service Experts for a comprehensive duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is rid of all these unwanted house guests, for instance:

Insects and Bugs

There are few things worse than working to kill a spider and seeing it escape into the air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is sit on the couch and imagine it laying all those baby spiders. You may even believe you hear a couple racing around your duct system. No worries. Neal Harris 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 evicted. Eggs, too.

Rodents

When rats, squirrels, and other wildlife make a home in your duct system, generally through holes in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes many issues. First, rodents can leave droppings behind and can ruin anything they encounter, including seasonal decorations or old baby clothes you’re keeping in your attic. Second, rodents tend to chew, which can cause 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 danger in your attic, behind your walls, and in your duct system. A thorough 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 maybe an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds normally look for safe and dry places to nestand your air vents meet that criteria. 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 presumably end up with six-legged and eight-legged critters in your home. But that’s not the worst part. Birds build nests in your vents, and given the vast amount of materials they use to create said nest, it can end up fully clogging a vent, obstructing any airflow. As with our furry friends, a professional duct cleaning from Neal Harris Service Experts can get rid of 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 your vents or attics.

Call Neal Harris Service Experts now for a complete duct cleaning to help ensure the air your family is breathing is healthy and pest-free.
