Dead Animal Odor
An unfortunate part of having ducts is that sometimes little animals can crawl into them to keep warm during the chillier temperatures. Even more unfortunate, they often tend to end up dying in them, too. If you experience a rancid smell coming from your ducts, then it’s likely something died somewhere in there. Unless you want to deal with a dead animal, it might be best to call a professional cleaning company. They can use their equipment to locate the dead animal, remove it, and then clean and sterilize the area so the odor is removed.
Because there are lots of places for the animal to scurry around to, trying to find it yourself might end up causing you to tear down parts of your home. Make it easy on yourself by having an air duct cleaning crew do it for you.
Another source of a slightly musky odor comes from mold and mildew in your air ducts. This can result when you have too much moisture in your home or if you haven’t had the air filters in your unit changed out regularly. Because breathing in that mold could be hazardous to your health is breathed in for too long, it’s critical that you have a professional duct cleaning crew come in to remove it. If even one bit of mold remains, the chances of it returning and spreading are high.
As such, it’s important that you let a Certified Ventilation Inspector (CVI) inspect your air ducts, and then use special duct cleaning equipment and sanitary technology to get rid of mold.
