My spouse and I bought a lake house and fixed it up for weeks before moving in.
It was enjoyable because the lake house could be a mess without affecting me.
My spouse redid all the floors, I scraped the popcorn ceilings and painted all the rooms. I even gutted a bathroom before I moved in. It was smart to limit the amount of dust on my furniture. After I finished scrapping, sanding and chopping things down, I cleaned the whole venue. I scrubbed the walls, ceiling, floors and got the space ready. My spouse and I moved all our stuff into a well done, cleaned up house, and shortly after moving in I observed all the dust on my surfaces. I also observed I was sneezing, coughing and had headaches. I realized that the whole time the people I was with and I worked on the house, the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C unit was running. The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C was sucking up all the dust and storing it in the air duct. The two of us then moved in, and started running the dirty system. I hated always cleaning and feeling sick. I called a Heating, Ventilation, and A/C supplier to do air duct cleaning and it was more than worth the money. They do it much more carefully now because they have a camera to watch what they are doing. They suck up all the dust rather than clean too. It ensures the air duct doesn’t get destructiond in the process. I have observed the difference after they have gotten cleaned too. My air feels fresher and my surfaces still clean. If anyone does a dust heavy project, guess about your Heating, Ventilation, and A/C unit.
