An hour later, he had the air conditioning unit running, but he said I would need a new one
I couldn’t believe the mold that was settling on window ledges and walls. I knew it was humid in the house, but I didn’t know what to do. I had called the HVAC company, but they didn’t have anyone to come out right away. It was less than a week since my air conditioning unit quit working properly, yet the mold was already there. I knew I would probably need mold remediation once the air conditioning unit was fixed, but I had no choice. I was thrilled when the HVAC company called and told me they had someone who could come to my house that afternoon. I waited for the technician to show up, thinking I could see the mold and mildew spreading while I waited. I was using vinegar water to wipe everything down, including my table legs. I had a vintage 1950s table and chair set, and the metal was rusting. I could only hope the HVAC technician would arrive soon. When he finally arrived, my house smelled like vinegar, and I apologized. He told me this had happened at his house, but he still had to call a remediator to help get rid of the mold. It was inside the closets, and on everything. I was worried nothing was going to fix the mold problem I already had. An hour later, he had the air conditioning unit running, but he said I would need a new one. He had only done a temporary fix until we could have a new AC unit installed. I now had to pay for a new AC unit, and mold remediation company.
