Dust in the air ducts

For the past week I have noticed that every time I walk into my apartment I have been feeling sick… For a while I was thinking that it was just dust sensitivities however then I started connecting the dots that I only started to feel this way when I walked into my apartment and I did not feel this way when I was outside.

I thought that maybe it was just because my air filter has not been changed, I had not used a HEPA filter in quite a while and those are entirely enjoyable at keeping my indoor air quality clean, the times when I haven’t used them I have had concerns with my dust sensitivities acting up and so I put in a modern HEPA filter thinking that would take care of the issue, however, I found that even when I was over at a friend’s apartment or at my family’s site I was no longer having symptoms.

It did not make any sense to me. I couldn’t understand why even with the HEPA filter, I was having these symptoms. I was start to suppose that I was going to need to make an appointment with my healthcare worker, however then I decided to go ahead and try one more thing first. I had not checked on my air ducts in a while and so I decided to schedule an appointment with a local heating and A/C company and have them come out and take a look at it. I wanted to see if it was something that could be in the Heating plus Air Conditioning that was causing it, when the heating and cooling worker came out of here he took one look at my heat and A/C air ducts and he told me that I had mold in there. I was shocked and horrified at the same time! I had been breathing in mold spores this entire time, no wonder I was feeling so sick. I had the air ducts cleaned very thoroughly and I stayed out of my apartment for a week before returning… Once I returned everything was back to normal and I could live in my apartment once again.
