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 attempt to lure the creatures out but if they’re nesting they may not leave their babies. Call Rolf Griffin Service Experts for a thorough duct cleaning and we will ensure your duct system is rid of all these unwelcome house guests, for instance:

Creepy-Crawlies

There are few things worse than working to kill a spider and seeing it escape into your air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is sit in your room and imagine the thing laying all those baby spiders. You may even swear you hear a couple scuttling around your duct system. No worries. Rolf Griffin Service Experts will come see you and give you a thorough duct cleaning and assure that spider and any of her creepy-crawly friends are good and gone. The offspring, too.

Rodents

When raccoons, mice, and other furry visitors find themselves in your duct system, generally through holes in the duct work and cracks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes several issues. First, squirrels, mice, or raccoons can leave droppings behind and can ruin anything they get into, including Christmas decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can result in exposed wiring. That mixed with the dried leaves and twigs they’re likely bringing in to create a nest, and now you have quite the fire hazard in your attic, behind your walls, and in your duct system. A professional duct cleaning can remove rodent droppings or nests, but you could also need to call an expert wildlife removal company to remove the rodents and maybe an electrician if there was any damage to the wiring.

Birds

Birds typically find safe and warm places to nest, like your air vents. Nests mean baby birds, which means they are feeding babies, and that means BUGS. If you discover birds in your vents, you’ll presumably 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 materials they use to assemble said nest, it can end up totally clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with mice, squirrels, etc., a completely duct cleaning from Rolf Griffin 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 Rolf Griffin Service Experts soon for a thorough duct cleaning to help assure the air your family is breathing is healthy and pest-free.
