I recently started a job at a local paint store. Most of my friends would guess that laboring in a store that sells nothing but paint would be a horrible and truly boring job! However, it is not as boring as you may think. Yet that goes for both the nice and the bad… On the nice side of things, you get to meet a lot of odd people. It varies rom the normal homeowner wanting to do a DYI paint job, to the professionals who buy bulk amounts of paint for the jobs they have to do. I had a truly interesting one come through just the other day. It was a painter professional and she was telling me about a job she recently did where the customer’s town house had the worst heating and cooling system, and the worst air quality. She was describing how the air quality in this home she was painting made both her and the workers sick when they left! After she told me about this, I was giving her some ideas on what to suggest to those customers when she goes back next week to finish the job. I had told her to advise calling their local heating and cooling corporation to inquire about an air purification system, for one. Another idea was to have their Heating, Ventilation, and A/C ducts cleaned and diagnosed, as the heating and cooling system ductworks can get pretty dirty and cause the disappointing air quality. Then of course, there’s replacing the entire heating and cooling system all together. The professional painter took my advice and will be mentioning it to them when she goes back.
