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

It’s unpleasant to consider, but often times dust isn’t all that is in your duct system. You can attempt to lure the creatures out but they may be nesting and refuse to leave their babies. Call Epperson Service Experts for a thorough duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is rid of all these unwelcome house guests, for instance:

Insects and Bugs

Nothing is worse than trying to kill a spider and seeing it run into your 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 spider babies. You may even swear you hear a few scampering around your duct system. Never fear. Epperson Service Experts will come out and give you a full duct cleaning and ensure that spider and any of her bug friends are out of there. Babies, too.

Rodents

When rodents make their way into your duct system, usually through gaps in the duct work and cracks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes multiple issues. First, rodents can leave droppings behind and can destroy anything they get into, including holiday decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That joined with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely taking in to create a nest, and now there’s quite the fire risk in your attic, duct system, and behind your walls. A thorough duct cleaning can get rid of rodent droppings or nests, but you could also need to call an expert wildlife removal company to remove the furry visitors and perhaps an electrician if there was any damage to the wiring.

Birds

Birds typically find safe and dry places to nestand your air vents are perfect. Nests mean eggs, which means they are finding food for babies, and that means BUGS. If you have birds in your vents, you’ll probably end up with creepy-crawlies in your home. But that’s not all. Birds create nests in your vents, and given the great amount of leaves and grass they use to create said nest, it can result in completely clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with rodents, a completely duct cleaning from Epperson Service Experts can get rid of any droppings, feathers, or other possible illness-carrying leave-behinds. You could also need a professional wildlife removal company to actually remove the birds from air vents or attics.
