My sons are teenagers now and it never ceases to amaze me just how stinky they can be.
They both play sports and so my house is constantly full of sweaty, dirty sports gear, along with all of their shoes.
If you’ve ever been in a house with a bunch of teenage boys, then you know how it can be! Anyway, I started trying to figure out how to keep the house from smelling so bad all the time. It may seem like I am being a little over dramatic, but I can assure you that that is not the case. The indoor air quality in my house has really gone downhill lately, and so I have been buying all kinds of air fresheners and sprays to help make it better. I even bought one of those scented things to go on top of my air filter so that the smell would infiltrate the ventilation system whenever the air conditioning would turn on. However, none of this stuff has really been working all that well and so I talked to a professional HVAC technician about it last week. The HVAC technician told me that he would suggest that we get our ventilation system professionally cleaned. He said that once we get the ductwork cleaned out, we might want to think about installing a whole home air purification system to run at the same time as our heating and cooling system. I think that he’s probably right and the way that he explained it really made sense to me. I think I’m going to go ahead and schedule an air duct cleaning for us and I’m going to talk to my husband about the air purifier, too.
