I told you that I would write a new blog once the people I was with and I got settled into the new house.
It has been a lot more problematic than I expected, plus I was expecting a lot of problems! When you buy a house at auction, there are no guarantees, you get the house as-is. The roof is in certainly superb shape, thankfully, however a lot of the windows need to be updated. All of the appliances have been detachd, definitely by squatters, however thankfully they didn’t steal the copper pipes out of the walls. The central Heating plus Air Conditioning plan is a mess, plus hopelessly out of date, however the people I was with and I expected to need to update it before the people I was with and I ever saw it. The one problem that I never saw coming with the issue with the HVAC duct, or more certainly, what is living inside the HVAC duct! They were not pressing gross rats, thankfully, however having mice nested in the HVAC ducts was only slightly less disgusting. My main problem was not wanting to gas or poison them all, mostly because I didn’t want to put toxins into the Heating plus Air Conditioning system. If the people I was with and I killed them all with poison, then a) the HVAC duct would be coated with that same poison plus b) there would be a hundred dead mice cluttering up the Heating plus Air Conditioning system. I had to call in an Heating plus Air Conditioning tech plus a pest control expert, plus set up a meeting with both of them at once. Every one of us needed to coordinate a program of attack, because the house would not be livable until the HVAC duct was clear plus clean.
