I don’t consider myself a germaphobe.
When people talk about being scared of bacteria I usually laugh and shake my head.
Having obtained a microbiology degree I am not afraid of germs even a little bit. You honestly have no clue what is in your breathing air or on your body at any given moment, let alone worrying about washing your hands 30 times in a single afternoon. I am not afraid to eat food that has been resting out on the counter. I don’t freak out if I get dirt in my mouth either. However, there is one particular part of life that does gross me out severely. Indoor air handling equipment happens to be a bacterial respite, because your indoor air handling equipment is always sucking up and circulating your indoor breathing air it accumulates a huge amount of airborne contaminants. This isn’t even limited to bacteria and germs. There are mold and dander spores floating through your indoor air, happily floating along on the waves of your a/c equipment and forced air furnace. If you suppose it’s nasty at your property, just think about how nasty Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C equipment happens to be in public places. This is why I got up and left a restaurant the other afternoon after the heating and cooling equipment effectively contaminated my dinner. I was resting at the table when I observed a slight drip hitting my plate. When I looked up, I saw that the HVAC ductwork above me was dripping something directly onto my table. Thinking about all of the germs, human dander, and hair that was certainly stuck inside of the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C equipment… I quickly abandoned my plate and went back to my property to eat something out of the fridge.
