My Grandma’s home consistently had a absolutely distinct smell to it. Not a bad smell, just not a fresh air smell. Her home is neat as a pin. She’s meticulous about her housekeeping routine, then you’ll never see a pillow or knickknack out of locale. If there’s so much as a speck of dirt tracked in on her carpet, she’ll schedule a steam cleaning. Sure, occasionally you can detect a whiff of her arthritis cream in the air when she’s feeling achy. You’ll also chance up the scent of her flowery perfume when you sit by her dressing table. That’s the smell of Grandma as far as I’m concerned. The stale smell was throughout the house. It was stronger in the warmer weeks of the year. That made me guess the a/c plan might be the source of the issue. I had the a/c supplier come out to do a check and, sure enough, the a/c filter was the culprit. My Grandma hadn’t changed the a/c’s filter in years. Staying on top of a/c filter changes has to be part of a homeowner’s routine. A clean air filter is one of the most substantial factors in ensuring the health of your a/c and you. Those filters catch a wonderful amount of organic material that would otherwise accumulate in the a/c ducts, and that stops mold growth. The last thing I want is for my Grandma to come down with a respiratory issue because of a dirty air filter. It’s so easy and pricey to change those a/c filters every multiple weeks. I’m going to make sure that it gets done on schedule from now on.
