I must say the man was excellent at his task, and he did a deep-dive inspection of my entire ventilation system
I have never owned pets, because I have constantly been allergic to them. Apparently when I first came lake apartment from the hospital as a baby my parents had to get rid of their pets because it made myself and others cough and sneeze. That never changed, and it’s such a strong dust sensitivity that even spending a few seconds in the presence of a animal will make my face start to itch. I take dust sensitivity meds, of course, although I still can’t be around animals for very long. A few weeks ago I started to have regular dust sensitivity attacks, and couldn’t figure out why. After doing a deep clean of the house, and overdosing on dust sensitivity meds, I finally called an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C expert to come and test the air quality of my home. I expected a big, burly Heating, Ventilation plus A/C tech like constantly, however instead was visited by a short, petite man who looked like a librarian. She was an expert on testing air quality, and that is all he did. I must say the man was excellent at his task, and he did a deep-dive inspection of my entire ventilation system. She even removed the air vents to peer inside, and then went up into the attic to check my insulation. That is where he found the cul;prit to my questionable air quality – there was a litter kitten up in the attic, swaddled in shredded insulation! At some point in the last few weeks a stray animal had gotten into the attic to have babies, and now their dander and hair was spreading through the air ducts and making myself and others assume sick.
