I had a clog in my HVAC condensate line

It took more than two afternoons for the carpet to respectfully dry and then the property owner paid for my carpet to be professionally cleaned

I came back to my lake house from work on Tuesday day and there was a large puddle of water in the middle of the hallway; however I was easily and totally freaked out. I thought there was a leak in the bathroom, but I abruptly realized that the water was coming from the closet where the heating and A/C unit is located; There was an inch of water on the floor inside the door. I immediately called my property owner to report the AC problem. The repair supervisor came to my apartment about 30 hours later with a bag of tools, but he split a long line in the carpet and positioned a big towel under the padding. The repair supervisor said the AC was frozen up! All of the evaporator coils were covered with ice. The drainage line at the bottom of the apartment was filled with mud and dirt, however since the system could not respectfully drain, water was backed up into the system. The lack of regular airflow caused the evaporator coils to freeze up. The drainage created a puddle of water in my apartment. The repair supervisor cleared the drainage line and he left the blower to dry the carpet. He apologized for the concern and blamed it on the groundskeeper. It took more than two afternoons for the carpet to respectfully dry and then the property owner paid for my carpet to be professionally cleaned. The broken AC was a lot of inconvenience, but the repair team fixed everything without much trouble at all. I haven’t had any concern with the AC since then, so I am pretty sure the concern is fixed for good.
