Not too long ago, our child made an absolutely enormous mess in our house by dumping a tote of multi-colored glitter all over. It got all in our A/C vents. And when the air conditioner kicked on to run the central A/C, it was an ungodly crazy glitter filled mess all over our entire house. I just looked around in surprise as glitter rained down onto every available surface from our innocent looking A/C vents in the ceilings as well as in the walls. I didn’t even have a clue what to do first. I mean, it was super hot outside and the temperatures outside were warming up even more. Of course, I wanted to be cooling the place off, but if I left the A/C running, it became a big huge glitter party in our house! Not to mention breathing in glitter is no way to help your indoor air quality or health! No, I was just at a loss, this mess was beyond anything that I had ever dealt with as a mother before and so I did the only thing I could think of to do. I called our local heating and air conditioner company and cried badly to the receptionist, The receptionist completely sympathized with me, too, since she has her own child at home! She told me to just hold on and she would schedule one of their Heating plus A/C workers to come out with their air duct and ventilation system cleaners as soon as she could; After she came and cleaned out the Heating plus A/C system, the glitter was gone and I have sworn that I will never ever again allow glitter into our happy home!
