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

It’s not fun to think about, but sometimes dust isn’t exclusively what 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 Barlow Service Experts for a comprehensive duct cleaning and we will assure your duct system is rid of all these unwanted house guests, including:

Insects and Bugs

Nothing is worse than working to kill a spider and watching it run into the air vent. It’s impossible to get it now and all you can do is lay in bed and imagine the thing laying all those spider babies. You may even swear you hear a few scuttling around your duct system. Don’t worry. Barlow Service Experts will come to your home and give you a complete duct cleaning and make sure that spider and any of her yucky friends are good and gone. Eggs, too.

Rodents

When raccoons, mice, and other furry visitors find themselves in your duct system, usually through holes in the duct work and breaks in the foundation or home exterior, it causes many issues. First, rodents can leave droppings behind and can destroy anything they get into, including Christmas decorations or old toys you’re saving in your attic. Second, rodents tend to chew, which can cause exposed wiring. That combined with the dried leaves and twigs they’re likely taking in to build a nest, and now there’s quite the fire danger in your attic, behind your walls, and in your duct system. A complete 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 wire damage.

Birds

Birds normally find safe and dry places to nestand your air vents are perfect. 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 worst part. Birds build nests in your vents, and given the vast amount of leaves and grass they use to create said nest, it can end up fully clogging a vent, stopping any airflow. As with our furry friends, a thorough duct cleaning from Barlow Service Experts can eliminate any droppings, feathers, or other likely illness-carrying leave-behinds. You could also need an expert animal removal company to actually remove the birds from the vents or attics.

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