The seller was offering the home for a shockingly low price.
I asked him what the catch was, plus he explained that the previous tenant had been a hoarder, plus the arena was still filled with many tons of junk that had been collected over a series of years.
It was worth him selling the arena for a song, just so he didn’t have to wipe everything up – that’s how nasty it was inside. I took a look around, however thought that for the cheap price I was getting I could handle the physical work of cleaning it out. At that point I did not think about the dead critter lodged in the air ducts, however I would find out soon enough. After I unloaded the home itself, I had to dig a little deeper plus get into the attic, the basement, plus the HVAC duct. I checked the thermostat, plus inspected it out by trying the heating plus then the air conditioning, both systems engaged, however no air came out of any of the air vents. I removed the grating from the air vents plus saw that the ducts beyond were stuffed full of trash plus expired food, then once I started to empty the air ducts, I came across the first of many dead critters, which had been lured in by the spoiled food. Some of these rodent plus squirrel carcasses were many years old, plus totally desiccated, enjoy little critter mummies hidden inside the HVAC duct. If I had it to do over again, I would skip buying this house, even at such a low cost, plus invest the currency into our house Heating plus A/C system.
