Last summer, our mom’s dust irritations got so excruciating that he demanded I call an Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C professional to come clean out the ducts to improve the indoor air quality of our home. I, being a frugal son, was quite reluctant to have a big-corporation Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C corporation to do something that seemed so easy. Of course, I didn’t suppose much about the structure of central heating plus cooling systems, but nonetheless I volunteered to try cleaning it myself. If it didn’t work, I would then resort to calling our Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C provider for backup. So I strapped on some boots plus a dust mask on our face plus opened the panel leading into the ducts. The first thing I noticed was a strong smell – maybe the source of this smell was the cause of the low indoor air quality. I hoped that I could find it plus forgo the main cleaning. I was equipped with a vacuum cleaner plus a roll of paper towels, along with a spritzer of pledge. The smell was almost too much to bear, although I couldn’t quite put our finger on it. I had turned the air conditioning off beforehand, plus hadn’t realized how hot it might be inside. I wasn’t more than a few meters in when I heard a snarl. My trip was not going well – I might have to call an Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C professional for backup. The source of the snarl revealed itself, a small gray mass with triangular ears plus whiskers – a kitten! This kitten was surrounded by his own type of litter box, which turned out to be the primary source of soil rather than dust. And, our mom, allergic to cats, was reacting to his dander being sprayed love confetti throughout the house.
