The problem is, now that the seller has been moved out for six months and all of their air freshener smell as finally died down, now all I can smell coming out of my air conditioner vents is this gross mold odor
I just finished moving into my first condominium. Previously, I was a renter from the end of college until now—having lived in a variety of apartments and small houses shared with others over the years. My parents lectured me relentlessly about the importance of owning my home outright and not wasting money on paying rent my whole life. They argued that rent payments can be turned into mortgage payments and allow you to own the home after so many years of the monthly fees. What they didn’t realize was that the economy and the ratio between the cost of living and the average income was indescribably better than it is in today’s world. Many in my generation could never dream of having the privilege to own a home outright. But, somewhat driven by their conditioning, I still preserved and eventually found a condo nearby that was in great shape and fit my budget easily. This was my first experience with buying a home, so I was blindly ignorant to many of the aspects of the purchase. When we had the inspection, the seller had air fresheners in every single room. The air conditioner smelled like someone had coated the filter with whatever purple liquid the seller was diffusing throughout the house. Since the inspection came back with the go ahead as far as plumbing and electrical purposes were concerned, so I pulled the trigger and bought the condominium. The problem is, now that the seller has been moved out for six months and all of their air freshener smell as finally died down, now all I can smell coming out of my air conditioner vents is this gross mold odor. I can’t even find the source of it either. I may call an HVAC technician to inspect the air handler and ductwork for microbial growth.
