I’m mechanically cleaning the interior of my home

Rodents really give me the creeps.  Fortunately, I haven’t had to battle them until lately.  Walking through my house, I would notice mouse droppings in places all over the house.  Even stranger was the fact that I had not seen a mouse. I set a few traps to see if perhaps I could catch the mice and solve the problem.  The traps never snapped. In fact, the bait was not even disturbed so I had no choice but to call the exterminator. When the pest guy showed up, I explained what was going on.  He just smiled and asked me to point him toward the attic access. We went to the attic to find no sign of mice until we reached the air ducts. There were nests and debris all over the ducts.  I had mice living in my air ducts. The droppings I had found around the house were raining down from the vents. I almost threw up on the spot. While the exterminator eradicated the mice, I was down stairs on the phone to our HVAC company.  They told me not to panic. The HVAC company would send out a ductwork crew as soon as the exterminator had eliminated the mice. I sighed a bit in relief but, my next phone call was to a hotel. The air duct cleaners came out several days later and took out so much stuff from the ducts.  I simply couldn’t watch. Cleaning the air ducts was not there only task. The duct crew also shored up a few sagging duct segments before resealing all of the joints. After maniacally cleaning the interior of my home, I finally felt as though I could rest easy. Thanks to the HVAC duct crew, I won’t be faced with a similar disaster again.
