For the past couple of nights my little girl has been coming into my room complaining that she is hearing something moving in the ceiling.
Hearing your child say something like this is never something you want to hear, but I knew there had to be a reasonable explanation as to what she was hearing.
So I went into her room and heard the same thing that she was hearing. I think there must be something moving around in the ductwork, this is the only explanation that I can think of that makes sense. So I called our local HVAC company to have them come out and do a full inspection of our ductwork to see what was going on up there. The HVAC tech was at our house two hours after I called, I am sure they could hear the sound of panic in my voice. After spending about two hours in the ductwork the HVAC tech said he found mice droppings up there. I had a feeling it was going to be something like this! So I had the HVAC tech schedule an appointment to come back out to our house and clean the ductwork throology. I didn’t want to hear another mouse in the ductwork for as long as we live in this house. I really hope cleaning out the ductwork and setting a few mouse traps helps fix the problem! That was such a scary night when we heard the mice moving around up there.
