It seems like so much of my time is wasted these days trying to find the motivation to complete my daily tasks.
- I always seem to arrive, at the end of the day, with only half of my daily chores done.
I am a stay at home mom of four little ones and this means a constant pile of laundry, dishes, and dust need to be attended to each day. However, since the beginning of Winter, I have found it harder and harder to get things done. At first, I thought it was because of getting older, then I thought it was a type of illness. After all of that was ruled out, my husband and I started looking into our home environment to see it there was something that was causing my exhaustion. The only thing that changed, along with the weather, was the fact that we now had to use the HVAC system 24/7. We contacted the HVAC dealer to come check out the system. We wanted to make sure that it wasn’t leaking any toxic gases into the house that could be affecting our families health. When they arrived, the first thing they did was check all the connection and make sure that there was not a trace of carbon monoxide. This is a deadly gas that can sometimes go undetected and cause illness and death. The next thing they checked was the ductwork. What they found there was very disturbing. There were parts of the ductwork that contained a couple of types of mold. It turns out that this was making me sick, but not sick enough to need medical attention. We arranged to have them cleaned immediately and even had a secondary filter installed to prevent it happening again.
