Something I did not expect that much when moving in the city, is how truly awful the air quality is.
Yes, I know there is a lot of pollution, I was well aware of the fact.
But knowing about it and actually experiencing it are two different things. I figured that as long as I stay in my apartment, I would be ok. I didn’t think about the fact that that stuff can leak into your home as well. After moving to the city, I noticed I was sneezing and coughing a lot more. I even fell ill more often too. At first, I didn’t think too much of it. It wasn’t until I was talking to a friend that they asked me when these symptoms appeared, and then I realized it was around the time I moved to the city. My friend told me I should suggest getting a portable air cleaning system. The more I thought about it, the more that sounded like a fantastic idea. I agreed, and afterwards I went to a heating and cooling store. Thankfully, they still had one portable air purifier left, and I was lucky enough to be the last one to grab it. I asked a few questions to the cooling tech, and then I went home to set it up. Setting the new air cleaning machine was actually pretty easy, and I let it run for a few hours. I didn’t notice an immediate difference, it wasn’t until about a day later, that I noticed my symptoms ceased. I was impressed, and also quite happy. Now I can live in the city, but not worry about the effect the pollution and bad indoor air quality will have on my health.
