“My house is a mess.”
That’s the message it took to get me to get rid of the house and move to a small apartment in rural Texas.
But that’s not what happened when I finally gave it a thorough cleaning and took it out for the weekend.
When I was a kid, my parents and I loved to have a big, open space to explore, to go to the movies, to take long walks, and to play with the animals.
The more space we had, the more we could take time to just relax and enjoy our time together.
As my husband and I moved to a larger house in the suburbs, I thought that living in a home full of clutter was a waste of space.
So I began to look for new places to live and started searching online for apartments that could fit my lifestyle.
And one of those places was a tiny apartment on a hill in Texas called the Woodland Hills Apartments.
I remember walking down the hill one morning as I was packing my bags and seeing the huge pile of furniture and appliances in my room.
The place was absolutely bursting with clutter and I was worried about what to do with it.
The first thing I did was check the apartment for any mold.
After cleaning it up, I noticed there was no mold at all in my bedroom and bathroom.
The only mold I found was in a small bowl in the living room.
I called the landlord, who said it was not a concern and would be removed the next time I lived there.
I did not want to move to another apartment where I would have to deal with mold.
I went back to the store and bought a new mattress for the living space.
I was so happy to see my little one happy sleeping in his new home!
I called him again and he said that I had to move out of the apartment.
But I had the good sense to tell him that I was just happy to be able to enjoy the quietness and peacefulness of our little apartment.
It would be great if I could move back in and get my little boy back.
So that was my initial reaction.
My husband and son were all happy to have me back in the house.
It was time to get to work.
But the next morning, I went to the apartment and I saw mold.
I couldn’t believe it!
I told my husband about the mold and he suggested I check the mold in the apartment I rented out.
The apartment had been sitting in my living room since it was purchased in 2006.
And the mold had spread to the living area.
I knew this was not just an issue of mold, but something more serious.
I called the City of Houston and they had a team of professionals come out to examine the area and determine what the cause was.
They found mold and recommended that I call them to find out what I needed to do to get it cleaned up.
They also recommended that the area be sealed and that I check with the City to make sure there were no mold spores growing.
I got a new cleaning cloth and began to put a vacuum cleaner on top of the carpet in the room where the mold was found.
When the dust was gone, I began cleaning up the apartment with the vacuum cleaner.
It took a few hours to get all the dust out of there, but I was glad that I could get that clean area.
It didn’t take long to get into the kitchen and start cooking up some good homemade meals.
My son was in bed when I got home and was asleep when I heard the alarm go off.
I went straight to bed to be with him, and I slept well the next night.
But the mold continued to spread and my home was once again a mess.
So what did I do?
I put on my mask and went back into the living and dining areas.
I also put on gloves and started working in the kitchen.
I took the refrigerator out of its box and opened it up.
I started to remove the furniture from the living rooms, which was one of the things I had been worried about.
I put in my new vacuum cleaner and began cleaning the area.
Then I moved the fridge into the bedroom and put the clothes in the closet.
I also did a lot of work in the dining area.
There were a lot more dishes, bowls, and dishes than I had previously thought, and this was a very bad time to start cleaning up.
The cleaning was a success, and we were all really happy to find that my old apartment was no longer a problem.
But it was time for a little cleanup.
After I took out the trash and started removing the old carpeting and appliances, I started getting in touch with the mold experts.
I asked them if I should go to a specialist for mold tests.
They recommended that we contact a professional who specializes in mold testing and that we call them right away to get some samples for testing.
The results were in.
The mold was gone.
The next day I called my
