Creepy Things Found in Air Ducts
Fall is the season for all things scary and Halloween-related, and there may even be some spooky things waiting in your air ducts. While some pollutants like dust and dirt can be found floating around in your air ducts, there are some other scary things that can be causing pollution in your home as well.
Here are a few things you may find in your ducts that don’t belong.
We had to begin this list with the scariest thing you may find creeping around in your air ducts, which are rodents. Small rodents like rats, mice, and squirrels can get into your air ducts and scratch their way through small openings in random places throughout your home like your attic.
Rodents leave behind droppings that carry disease and can contaminate the air that flows through your home’s ventilation system from your air conditioning. Pretty gross, right?
Creepy pests like cockroaches get into your home’s air duct system through tiny holes in your ducts. Cockroaches also leave behind droppings and can trigger allergic reactions like coughing, sneezing, and rashes on your skin.
You can remove roaches from your home by contacting your local pest control and HVAC technician to seal your air ducts so that insects don’t enter them.
Mold can be equally disturbing as rodents and roaches. While mold doesn’t crawl through your air ducts, it can grow from constant moisture in the air. Leaks in your air ducts allow moisture into them, and if gone untreated for long periods of time, mold will grow and contaminate the air in your home.
Mold can easily be removed with the help of a mold remediation company, and your HVAC experts can locate and seal any leaks in your air ducts.
