Our grown son has moved back in with us, and with the recession going on he lost his job as well as has been having a lot of trouble finding a up-to-date job.
Our home has a nice giant basement so both 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, as well as A/C vents go down there. It even has its own little lavatory. In truth, both of us bought this house 2 years ago because both of us were planning to turn the basement into an in-law suit for my mother-in-law. Sadly, she passed away before this could happen. So both of us were thrilled that our son could use it. The people I was with and I were even more thrilled when our son got a job toiling at a dairy farm a few months after he moved in. The problem started shortly thereafter. It seems that no matter where I am in the house 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 sureterday that I figured out the problem. The intake vent for the whole home Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C system 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 house odors. I changed the filter as well as moved the shelf outdoors. Then I washed all of the rugs downstairs. From now on, the boots are to stay outside of the house, period. I might have to get our air duct cleaned now though. I can still odor the odor. However, it could be in my mind.
