Kid puts vegetables in Heating plus Air Conditioning vent

A client of ours called about a awful aroma coming out of his Heating plus Air Conditioning vents.

I was dispatched for a vent cleaning plus possible vent sealing! When your vents stink, it can be anything from mold to a dead creature the crawled into them plus died, and thankfully, this one did not end up being a dead creature however it was a weird one.

It seems that vent was not covered in the study room plus their 6 year-old child had been throwing food down there, unbeknownst to the parents. I feel this is a family that has to scrub their plates plus the child just didn’t like certain food. Whatever the cause, there was now multiple weeks of old molding food in the Heating plus Air Conditioning vent that I had to scrub out, then and the house stunk, however man did it aroma bad. The man of the house had some scented candles around however it did little to help the situation. Apparently they have been trying to figure out where the aroma was coming from for some time. I ended up doing a complete plus thorough vent cleaning. I also cleaned the Heating plus Air Conditioning system genuinely good plus installed charcoal plus baking coffee filters. It took all afternoon plus was genuinely nasty work. Most of the food in the vent was unrecognizable. It had all molded together or, in some cases, turned to a sticky, watery liquid. I also put a cover over any vents missing cover plus proposed the child’s seat be moved away from the vent for future meals. I doubt I will have to tell our purchasers this twice as they were rather aggravated to discover the cause of the stink.
