My aunt recently invited me to come and stay with her at her amazing home on the beach.
Personally, I can rarely ever afford to go on vacation so I thought it sounded like an amazing treat to go stay at her home for a few weeks.
I figured it would be extremely relaxing and gratifying to be near the water for any amount of time. And then, I arrived and realized I would not be relaxing for one second while I stayed with her. When my aunt showed me to the place that I would be staying in her home, I realized that there would be a lot of work to do. She was setting me up right next to her indoor pool which was absolutely disgusting. Apparently, when you have a body of water indoors you are asking for issues with humidity and mold. She had never kept up with the pool that was installed in the back of her house and as a result of the indoor air had been horrific for over 20 years. The central heating and cooling system couldn’t provide enough dehumidification power to remove all of the airborne moisture from her hot and muggy pool room. Because of this, there was a ton of disgusting mold and mildew growth in the corners and ceiling of the large pool room. Furthermore, the unfortunate airborne contaminants had started moving through the air ducts work and infiltrating the guest room that I was now staying in. From the moment I walked into my supposed vacation room, I realized that I would need to scrub all of the mold and mildew before I could possibly breathe easily with her indoor air. So much for my getaway from life.
