I started cleaning the filters in my a/c every month

I just started cleaning the filters in my a/c every single month.

I put it on my monthly to-do list.

I never used to do it that often, but I have learned that it is nice for me to do it that often. I used to only wipe the filters in my a/c about two times per year. A few months ago, I went to go wipe the air conditioner filters, & I saw mold on them. I was quite frustrated that there was mold on them. That meant that some of that mold could have been blown through the air for me to breathe in, & I am allergic to mold. I knew when I saw that, that I had to start cleaning out my a/c more often. I did notice a little bit of a musty smell as well. I was not cheerful with it. I almost threw away my a/c & purchased a new one. I know that may seem quite serious to some people, but I actually do not like musty smells. I am so happy that the smell went away after I cleaned the filters. Ever since that time, I have vowed to wipe my a/c every single month. If I ever miss a cleaning, I start to smell a musty moldy smell, & I instantly go & wipe the filters in my a/c. I am thinking about making that a chore for one of my kids. I would pay them to do it since it isn’t part of their common chores. I just don’t want to have to worry about it anymore. I need to make sure that the air filters are always cleaned.
