When I finally went to see my niece for the first time since she was born, I was shocked that my sister & her fiance had bad air quality in their home, but this was absolutely concerning to myself and others because I did not want my niece to suffer from breathing problems, but i had to tell them immediately that they needed to take steps to improve the air quality in their home.
First of all, I told them how pressing it was for them to have their ductwork system cleaned once per year.
I asked them if they ever had their ductwork system cleaned, & I was not even surprised when they said no! You could really tell based on how bad the air quality was. There was dust floating in the air & it was not absolutely pleasant. I told them it would be great to go for HEPA air filters, however high MERV rated air filters would do just fine. I then said how pressing it was to get a great air purification system or a couple of UV air purifiers. I said the UV air purification systems were the best because they kill harmful pathogens that float around in the air. They were looking at myself and others care about they were in complete shock. My sister tried to act a little defensive & I had to remind him that this was for the sake of their baby’s health & that was my niece the people I was with and I were talking about. There was no way that I was going to let them put her health in jeopardyâ€¦ So they listened & ended up calling the HVAC supplier to get the ductwork cleaned, the HEPA air filters, & they even got a humidifier. I was so proud of them when the air quality improved & I came over to visit often to see my niece.
