Our home is a clean and organized place.
This is fundamental to me being able to be a kind and productive human being.
Clutter and dirt make me crazy and I am not a very good person when I am crazy. So, I take the lead in making certain our home is kept up. Now, we aren’t insane germophobes or anything like that. However, my kitchen floor gets mopped at least once a week whether it needs it or not. I make sure the HVAC is running properly in the summer time so the mold & mildew don’t have the opportunity to grow. The garage is organized and all the bathrooms are company ready at all times. So, when I found some mice droppings in the middle of one of the guest rooms, I almost lost it. First, I couldn’t figure out where the mice were. I have 2 cats who live inside and would shred any mouse that tried to live in here. It happened again and it finally dawned on me. The mice droppings were falling from the HVAC vent in the ceiling. This was not great. I called an exterminator and got the mice problem eliminated. However, he told me they got in my ducts in the attic. We sealed the entire attic to be sure no more mice got in. However, we had to do something about the air ducts. I called a company who only cleans air ducts and had them come out. They did a great job of cleaning the entire duct system. They also resealed all the air duct joints. I couldn’t believe what a difference it made in my home. I’m gonna get my air ducts cleaned every year going forward.
