You don’t want to think about it, but occasionally dust isn’t all that is in your duct system. You may hear animal noises coming from air ducts and notice you have unwanted visitors. You can try and lure the critters out but if they’re nesting they may not leave their babies. Call Donelson Air Service Experts for a thorough duct cleaning and we will confirm your duct system is free of all these uninvited house guests, such as:
Not much is worse than trying to kill a spider and watching it run into an air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is lie in bed and imagine it laying all those spider babies. You may even think you hear a few scurrying around your duct system. Don’t worry. Donelson Air Service Experts will come out and give you a full duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her bug friends are good and gone. Babies, too.
When rodents make their way into 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 destroy anything they come across, including Christmas decorations or old baby clothes you’re storing in your attic. Second, those little guys tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That combined with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely bringing in to create a nest, and now you have quite the fire hazard in your duct system, your attic, or behind your walls. A thorough duct cleaning can remove rodent droppings or nests, but you may also need to call animal control to remove the rodents and possibly an electrician if there has been any damage to wiring.
Birds normally get into safe and dry places to nest, like your air vents. Nests mean baby birds, which means they are feeding babies, and that means BUGS. If you have birds in your vents, you’ll likely end up with bugs in your home. But that’s not the worst part. Birds construct 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 Donelson Air Service Experts can remove any droppings, feathers, or other potential illness-carrying leave-behinds. You might also need animal control to actually remove the birds from your vents or attics.
If you’ve got mice in your home’s air ducts, you should take steps quickly to remove them. Mice chew through wiring and leave feces like most rodents, but they also multiply quickly. And when they run around in the ducts, treating it like the highway of your home, they usually die in there. This creates unhealthy living conditions, and you may notice an unsavory odor.
You probably think of mice from the noises you hear – lots of scratching and scrabbling in ductwork. Or you might actually see one making an escape through the vents in your home. You might even confirm their presence by inspecting the ducts for mice leavings. Either way, if you suspect mice you have some options. You could trap them yourself, by placing traps inside each duct and checking them in the morning. Or you could hire a specialist.
Once you’ve determined that the mice are exterminated, you will need to have your air ducts professionally cleaned by an HVAC company. If mice have been present, they will have left mice refuse in your ducts. Mice leavings are toxic, and if you leave them in your ducts they can make you sick. Donelson Air Service Experts offers duct cleaning services that will clean out most debris from your home’s airways.
