I have seen some odd things while working in the HVAC industry, however rarely have I ever seen anything that scared me though.
Sure, climbing on a roof or into an attic can be a little frightening but there is never anything shocking involved, then but there was this a single time, when I was doing a routine vent cleaning, that I got quite a freightâ€¦ Let me beginning by saying I work in the Northeast region plus so both of us don’t have a lot of bugs.
That’s why I was shocked when I opened up a vent plus a giant tarantula fell out. I mean this thing was sizable. It was absolutely as big as our hand. After our initial shock, I grabbed the basket I use for water leaks plus sited it over the big spider. I assumed it must be a pet of the homeowner. The client, whose vents I was cleaning, was an older woman who did not strike me as the kind who keeps pet tarantulas as pets but who am I to judge. So I finished the vent cleaning plus then asked her if she knew the spider. She did not plus was rather upset to guess that it had been crawling around in her vents. I didn’t bother telling her I suspect it had been there for years based on all of the dead bugs, plus years of exoskeletons I found while cleaning the vents plus also because there is no way the spider could have gotten in or out of the covered vents covers at the size I found it. The spider must have escaped from somebody plus made its apartment in her furnace vents. Anyway, a long story short, now I have a big pet spider plus a odd story to go with it.
