So, I am struggling to deal with odors.
I have a carbon filter that successfully mitigates smells for a time. But I have some issues with it.
When I close the door to my grow room, the humidity is really high, and I seem to get bud rot on every large cola I grow as a result - from the very first one, so the mold was present in my basement before I ever started growing, or else it’s in the composted manure I’m growing with.
Regardless that is another issue I need to deal with, but I open the door to reduce humidity and it completely stinks up my house.
Additionally, I think drying and curing is adding to the problem because now I have stinky weed outside of my grow room too - I need to set up a drying tent with a separate carbon filter most likely.
Multiple people have told me they can smell it on me outside my house, and I don’t smoke at all during the day, so they are smelling my plants on my clothes.
In addition to the carbon filters, is anyone running a hepa filter like this in their living space?
I really can’t leave my house smelling like this anymore. I was out of work because the company I worked for failed due to covid impacts, but I’m back at work now and can’t go in smelling like this. I started using cologne, but I’m not a cologne type of guy and I’d rather just deal with the source than cover it up.
These are the types of filters I’m considering. If one of these will stop my clothes from smelling, I’ll buy it in a heartbeat and then try to figure out the rest of what I need to do to fix my grow and dry set-up.
