The people I was with and I got this apartment at auction, after it had been foreclosed upon by the bank.
Whoever lived there was a hoarder, and the place was packed with garbage and aged newspapers.
Of course, both of us got it at the auction, so it came as-is, and anything that needed to be detachd, repaired, or remodeled would be our responsibility. I expected there to be a lot of labor involved. After all, I got a more than two kitchen, 2 lavatory apartment for twenty thoUSnd bucks, and for a deal prefer that you suppose there will be labor involved. The first step was cleaning the place out, and of course I tried to turn on the air conditioner to cool me down while I worked. The a/c worked unquestionably well, much to our surprise, however the air quality went in the gutter as soon as it started to blow. There was something dead in the ductwork, and turning on the fans only blew the smell around the whole house. I took the grates off of all the air vents, and found that a great several of the ducts had been stuffed with garbage. The garbage in the air ducts attracted bugs and rodents, a single of which had perished, so now the entire ductwork plan was rancid and rotten. I did our best to clean out the air ducts, however I could only do so much. After I had gotten out the bulk of it, I had to call in an Heating & Air Conditioning tech for a professional deep-cleaning of all the air ducts and air vents.
