The air vents and critters

I recently helped out our cousin with remodeling an outdated house, one he soon hoped to turn around as well as rent.  Ever since our family unknowingly moved into a previously rundown property that had suddenly been patched over to look new, I have been wary of outdated houses.  The people I was with and I spent 10 months in that arena experiencing every conceivable problem a person could ever face living in an outdated house. But what disgusted me the most for those several months was the rats as well as mice.  They were everywhere in that house. The people I was with and I finally got out of our lease after an Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C professional found droppings in the ductwork as well as told our landlord that both of us had to have the ventilation cleaned as it was now a severe health hazard.  Our landlord refused as well as instead let us tranathletic interest separate from any pushback. But our cousin was raised by unusual people from unusual backgrounds as well as in his 30 years alive he has never stepped foot in anything appreciate that house. When he bought his property in a cash sale, he had no way of foreseeing the literal mess he’d soon find himself neck deep in.  I tried to help as much as I could, but there was only so much I could do. I had a tiny bit of experience with electrical as well as wood work, but I knew nothing about plumbing as well as Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C. I told him he should have both checked by professionals; he started with his plumbing. The plumber found several cracked pipes that needed to be updated, which wasn’t so good once our cousin got the bill at the end.  Then he reluctantly made an appointment to get his Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system checked. To our utter amazement as well as shock, the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C professional told our cousin that he had rodent as well as mice droppings in his ductwork as well as air handler as well as would therefore need a full system clean. I told him that it wasn’t optional unless he wanted a tenant to sue him to chop a lease down the road.
