My name is Samantha and I'm here to tell you about my air duct cleaning story that happened to me a while ago at work.
If your home or office hasn't had any air duct maintenance lately, you're in for a big surprise. I was working one afternoon at the office. One of my co-workers, Norman, kept coughing. Apparently, it only happens to him at work. It made me start thinking about the last time we had our building inspected. You've probably read news stories how mold and bacteria can build up in the vents if you don't keep up with annual air duct cleaning. I read one story how a woman developed a respiratory illness after years of breathing toxic air.
I'm very careful about my health so I asked my boss if we ever had our vents professionally inspected. He just looked at me like a deer in the headlights. Oh no, I thought. Chances were good our system had never had a proper air duct cleaning. My next move was to speak with our building manager. It's his job to oversee our HVAC maintenance so I figured he would have paperwork documenting the last time our office had an HVAC unit cleaning.
Guess what? He had no clue. This was not what I wanted to hear. It's not responsible for my company to ignore the health benefits of doing consistent air quality testing. We breathe the air in our office for nearly ten hours a day. Who wants to get sick at work? I know I don't, so I spoke with my boss again about having an air duct cleaning done to make sure we were safe. My biggest fear was we were going to discover handfuls of dust and debris that were making us feel sick at work. Norman has been sick a lot lately and I was worried about him. Sick buildings are serious business when it damages the health of employees. After I met with my boss, we agreed it was wise to take our air quality seriously and contacted the local company, air duct cleaning Hacienda Heights.
