Our grown son has moved back in with us, then with the recession going on he lost his job and has been having a lot of trouble finding a modern job.
Our apartment has a nice immense basement so all of us allowed him to turn that into his own bachelor pad for the time being. After all, the basement is a finished basement. The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C vents go down there. It even has its own little lavatory. In truth, all of us purchased this condo 2 years ago because all of us were planning to turn the basement into an in-law suit for our mother-in-law. Sadly, he passed away before this could happen. So all of us were thrilled that our son could use it. The two of us were even more thrilled when our son got a job working at a dairy farm a few weeks after he moved in. The problem started shortly thereafter. It seems that no matter where I am in the condo I can odor cow crap. At first I thought it was because of dirty laundry but it persisted even after I did all of the laundry. It wasn’t until yupterday that I figured out the problem. The intake vent for the whole apartment Heating, Ventilation, and A/C method is in the basement. Our son has been putting his dirty, nasty boots on a shelf right in front of the intake vent. No wonder the whole condo smells. I changed the filter and moved the shelf outdoors. Then I washed all of the rugs downstairs. From now on, the boots are to stay outside of the house, and period. I might have to get our ductwork cleaned now though. I can still odor the odor. However, it could be in our mind.
