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

You don’t want to think about it, but sometimes dust isn’t exclusively what is in your duct system. You can pull out all the stops to lure the little guys out but they may be nesting and refuse to leave their babies. Call Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air for a thorough duct cleaning and we will make sure your duct system is clear of all these unwelcome house guests, such as:

Creepy-Crawlies

Nothing is worse than working to kill a spider and watching is escape into an air vent. You can’t get to it now and all you can do is lay in your room and imagine the spider laying all those spider babies. You may even swear you hear a couple scurrying around your duct system. Don’t worry. Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air will come to your home and give you a thorough duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her yucky friends are good and gone. Babies, too.

Rodents

When raccoons, mice, and other furry visitors find themselves in your duct system, usually through openings in the duct work and cracks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes multiple issues. First, furry critters can leave droppings behind and can ruin anything they encounter, including seasonal decorations or baby toys you’re storing in your attic. Second, animals tend to chew, which can result in exposed wiring. That combined with the dried grass and leaves they’re likely carrying in to manufacture a nest, and now there’s quite the fire risk in your duct system, your attic, or behind your walls. A full duct cleaning can eliminate rodent droppings or nests, but you could also need to call a professional animal removal company to remove the rodents and perhaps an electrician if there was any wire damage.

Birds

Birds typically find safe and sheltered 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 probably end up with bugs in your home. But that’s not the end of it. Birds assemble nests in your vents, and given the great amount of stuff they use to create said nest, it can wind up fully clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with mice, squirrels, etc., a completely duct cleaning from Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air can eliminate any droppings, feathers, or other likely illness-carrying leave-behinds. You could also need a professional wildlife removal company to actually remove the birds from your vents or attics.

Call Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air now for a thorough duct cleaning to help ensure the air your family is breathing is healthy and pest-free.
