I helped my buddy

The other day when I was over at my friend’s house, I had to laugh at what he was saying. I remember saying something about the air quality and he was saying that he always had his air filters changed and his ductwork cleaned. I started laughing because it was clearly a big fat lie. How could he try to lie to my face like that when I was there and could tell that the air quality was bad. His face went red after I told him we should have a look at his air filter. He knew that I would die from laughter after seeing how clogged up the air filter was. I had to get serious about it though because it was a big problem. I told my buddy that he couldn’t just have better air quality by saying he was doing all the right things, he actually had to do those things he was saying. So we went together to get some high quality air filters. We swapped out the old air filter and boy was it clogged up bad. It was actually worse than I imagined it would be. He was embarrassed the whole time, but in the end, he thanked me for helping him out with those things. He said, now he could be honest about swapping out the air filters, but I said he still had to tackle that ductwork. He didn’t seem to want to pay some professionals to take care of it, so I said that perhaps we could handle it ourselves. He raised an eyebrow and I looked online. I found some DIY videos on how to clean your own ductwork. We got a shop vac and got to work. The ductwork cleaning wasn’t perfect, but the air quality was significantly improved.
