I never thought it would be the type of person who was a good homeowner.
To be honest with you, I usually neglect my exterior environment pretty often.
I’m a lot more concerned with all of the mess that’s going on inside the end of my surroundings most days of the week. As such, it’s very easy for me to turn a blind eye to messes in my house and ongoing issues with my maintenance services. I can’t pretend that I have my oil changed every 3000 miles. I can’t tell you the last time my gutters were cleaned. But recently, I have surprised myself when I have received massive boxes of air filters in the mail and remembered I was the one who ordered the filtration devices. It’s definitely out of character for me to be worried about taking care of my heating, cooling, and air quality control equipment the way that I have been. I guess everything changes quickly when you are suddenly diagnosed with life-ending allergies. Essentially, it turns out that I can’t have mold, dander, or dust in my indoor air if I expect to breathe and live like a human being. Since I started seeing an allergy specialist I have been in contact with the heating, cooling, and air quality control company down the street every few weeks. They recommended upgrading my air filters to HEPA air filtration devices. Now, I’m buying my air filters in bulk and actually remembering to perform the routine air filter swaps, too. Maybe this is the first step in a life of proper service and care.
