Well, I had started the process this week, when I got a notice that I had to remove everything from my porch because management was having the place power-washed. Now in addition to a little porch furniture, I have two large ferns in pots and stands, a large cane plant, and assorted other plants both large and small in my living room. Also various sizes of plant stands are stacked up here and there.
It has been this way for 3 days so far. I have fern droppings in piles on my floors, even though I sweep them up. My living room is so crowded I must walk around plants, tables and stands to move.
I spoke with the manager of the crew, and he told me they expected to be finished by Friday. Then I can move everything back and start all over with the cleaning process. I swear when I was younger I never thought I would be cleaning my own house, much less re-cleaning over and over. Live and learn.
