The fresh skunk scent is coming from the air duct

I love residing out in the middle of nowhere in this big ranch-style house, there are trees as far as the eye can see plus I just love the view from our balcony, then i also prefer the forest creatures, even if the deer do eat my garden, but this love for the forest creatures depleted a little bit when I woke up in the middle of the evening to a nasty smell in the house.

It smelled prefer skunks had sprayed inside of my house, however of course I had to get up plus investigate.

I did not find any skunks however the stench was overpowering. Soon enough, the whole family was awake plus none of us could go back to sleep, finally, my child found that the scent appeared to be coming from the Heating plus A/C ducts. I turned off the furnace plus the smell dissipated somewhat, especially when the two of us opened the windows. But it got absolutely frigid over the next few minutes with no heat plus open windows. I went under the current home to check it out in the day plus discovered that some creature has chewed through our air duct. For some reason, a skunk must have sprayed right next to the hole in the air duct. I called up our local Heating plus A/C company immediately plus they were able to come right out plus do some air duct sealing plus also air duct cleaning. They also installed charcoal filters to help us with the stench; After the Heating plus A/C company left, I got mesh to cover up any entry points leading under the house. I prefer nature plus all, however I hadprefer to keep it out of the house.
