Bugs Get in the House Through HVAC System

Our home is in an area that can be hit with a lot of storms.

Many of these storms can be particularly damaging.

Fortunately, both of us have never had our house flattened or anything like that. The majority of the storms aren’t direct hits so both of us avoid immense disfigure. Even so, there is still plenty of damage done to our property. Trees come down, the fence gets blown over as well as it is not uncommon to have some damage to the roof from the wind or falling debris. The velocity of wind has impacted our home over the years. Basically, both of us have been able to lessen the damage to an immense degree. After the last big storm, I noticed something I hadn’t noticed before. Suddenly, I was noticing bugs dropping from the HVAC vents in the ceiling. This grossed myself and others out since both of us are a super clean family as well as have never had insects. I could not figure out what was going on. My first call was to the exterminator. The exterminator came out to do the necessary spraying to eradicate the pests. Then, she commanded that I have the HVAC people come out. It appears that two air duct joints sagged quite a bit after some support wires were shook lose during the last storm. This led to a gap forming where the bugs were coming in. The exterminator sealed the section in the attic where the insects were able to receive access to the house. I had no plan that this sort of scenario could even happen. The next call was to the HVAC supplier. They set up a service call with a duct cleaning crew. This crew did a great task of thoroughly cleaning the whole of the duct system. They also sealed up all the duct joints throughout the house.
