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

It’s unpleasant to consider, but often times dust isn’t exclusively what is in your duct system. You can pull out all the stops to lure the critters out but they may be nesting and refuse to leave their babies. Call Freschi Service Experts for a complete duct cleaning and we will confirm your duct system is rid of all these unwanted house guests, such as:

Creepy-Crawlies

There are few things 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 sit on the couch and imagine the spider laying all those spider babies. You may even think you hear a few scampering around your duct system. No worries. Freschi Service Experts will come out and give you a thorough duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her creepy-crawly friends are good and gone. The offspring, too.

Rodents

When rodents make their way into your duct system, usually through openings in the duct work and fractures in the foundation or home exterior, it causes many issues. First, wildlife can leave droppings behind and can tear up anything they get into, including seasonal decorations or old toys you’re saving 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 taking in to build a nest, and now there’s quite the fire danger in your attic, duct system, and behind your walls. A complete duct cleaning can eliminate rodent droppings or nests, but you may also need to call an expert wildlife removal company to remove the mice, squirrels, or other wildlife and possibly an electrician if there was any damage to the wiring.

Birds

Birds usually look for safe and dry places to nestand your air vents are perfect. Nests mean eggs, which means they are feeding babies, and that means BUGS. If you discover birds in your vents, you’ll likely end up with bugs in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds construct nests in your vents, and given the great amount of stuff they use to create said nest, it can end up totally clogging a vent, preventing any airflow. As with rodents, a thorough duct cleaning from Freschi Service Experts can remove any droppings, feathers, or other likely illness-carrying leave-behinds. You might also need animal control to actually remove the birds from your vents or attics.

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