Now that the weather has finally turned warm and the landlords refuse to install any sort of ventilation in my studio…..guess what I smell???
It’s been almost a year since I moved into this studio space. It was home to a fish monger previously….he too had issue with the landlords and took it out on the building, dumping stinky fish brine all over the floors. The landlords promised to professionally clean it….but of course never did.
These are the moments when I think of all the old adages….like ‘ hind sight is 20/20’, ‘if I knew then, what I know now’, I can’t help but wonder would I be in this situation again? If I would have just kept my doors closed and continued pressuring my landlords to do what they said they were going to do in the first place, would the fish smell be gone today? Yes!! But starting a small business in a new location is stressful and I didn’t have the luxury of keeping my doors closed more than 12 weeks. Now what?!
