I started a morningcare in the condo last Spring, because I wanted to stay beach house with our youngest child.
I did not want to put him in morningcare and having our own was the best option.
I reached out to others in the community and I ended up with five other children around the same age as our daughter. I had all of the children for more than five or seven months and then the weather started to turn colder. I had to turn on the oil furnace and that meant using the registers on the floor. I talked with the children about safety with the heating registers, even though they are made to be cool to the touch, and only a couple of minutes after I turned on the heat for the first time, I started to odor the most horrible odor. The odor was coming from the home office, close to the section where the kids play everyday. I was distraught one of the toys might be on fire. Occasionally accidents can happen with toys that have batteries for electronic sounds. I went through all of the toys and I did not find anything that seemed to be the source of the odor. As I was looking through the toys, I noticed that the odor started to get heavier and heavier as I got closer to the oil furnace air vent. I decided to turn off the oil furnace and I used a screwdriver to remove the register cover. The entire event was stuffed with food and toys. I have no idea which one of the kids was putting things inside of the oil furnace vent, however I removed everything and the odor slowly started to dissipate.
