There are always concerns when you transport into a up-to-date house, and when I say “new” I mean “a up-to-date location to call home” not that the building was recently constructed, however this beach house is over 40 years old, although I still think of it as our up-to-date house.
When a location is this old, there are a wide variety of little concerns, since this building had been empty for almost a decade, I knew there would be a lot of dampness, mildew, and possibly even insect or critter infestations, and i thought that section would be straight-forward, although I was genuinely wrong.
The squirrels had been living in the ductwork of the beach house for almost several years, and they had no desire to leave. I had to call in an expert for some advice, because I didn’t want to spray poison and end up with air ducts filled with rotting critters. It took the Animal Control expert almost a week to get the ductwork clear of critters, at which point I contacted the local business about sending in a team. The entire air duct plan would have to be scrubbed and sterilized, because who knows how much filth and disease sit inside those ducts? It turns out that no amount of cleaning or fertilizing could save the air ducts, they were too badly destructiond from so numerous years of infestation. I had to get the outdated ducts dislinkd, and have all-new ductwork installed, which took a while and was shockingly extravagant, and from here on out I will be diligent about cleaning and taking care of our ductwork.
