I’ve been working from our house for the past 5 weeks and it’s been absolutely incredible, because all my work can be done from my laptop, which I move around the house depending on how I’m feeling; The other morning, while I was working from the chair in my living room, I caught a bad whiff of something. I paused what I was doing, and inhaled deeply. Although it was odd, it smelled like a hamster home. We don’t own any hamsters or any rodents at all for that matter. I got up from the chair and gave it a good sniff. It wasn’t the chair. I got down on all fours to smell the carpet, but that wasn’t it either. As I began sniffing everything in my living room, it hit me what I was smelling. Something had died in our HVAC ductwork. We hadn’t been using our AC for several days because the outside temperatures were almost perfect. However, we had just turned the AC back on due to a temperature increase. Whatever died in our HVAC duct was emanating a horrid smell as well as coming out through the air vents. I called my spouse instantly as well as told him about the A/C situation at hand. He was skeptical about what I was telling him, however I convinced him to hire an A/C professional immediately. Sure enough, they found a dead mouse hidden in the HVAC duct when they came to examine our heating and A/C system. I’m so happy I can breathe fresh air again.
