Only pleasant smells allowed!
Have you ever tried to track down a smell that is a bit unpleasant, and appears to emanate from a particular area? Rebecca and I have been working on one such challenge the last couple of days. Having had no success otherwise, we even went so far this morning as to cut an “inspection hole” to see what was behind a particularly inaccessible area. As you can tell, we’re serious about this stuff!
Note: Cutting that hole would have been infinitely easier if we had the proper tool!
Once that hole was cut, it was still not super easy to see where we wanted to so we put our new GoPro Hero3 to creative use. Unlike the older models, the GoPro3 and the newer ones have built-in WiFi connectivity, and an iOS app that allows you to remotely view on your iPhone or iPad what the GoPro is pointing at. Using this feature, I was able to stick the camera into the hole and see what was inside there by looking at the screen on my iPad. Cool, eh? Coincidentally, while walking the aisles of Home Depot yesterday, I saw a $275.00 tool that basically does the same thing, albeit with a smaller camera lens.
So, what did we discover? Sadly, nothing obvious. I was really hoping to find something dramatic. Using the access that we just created though, we did do some additional cleaning with some bleach, hoping that it will do the trick. We’ll see, or in this case, smell if we were successful. I’d really rather not to have to cut any more holes!
