A large brick church

This is a list of places where I have personally sensed airborne fiberglass. They are listed in a general way.

  • Several churches
  • A Jewish synagogue
  • A flea market in an old brick building
  • Large chain pet store (fiberglass lined ducts)
  • Large furniture store chain (fiberglass lined ducts and ripped flex ducts)
  • An art center that teaches dance and other types of art
  • An old tavern restaurant
  • Grosery Store
  • A newly renovated modern movie theater (because no one thinks to update the fiberglass lined ductwork)
  • An old one screen movie theater
  • A pizza shop in a shopping center
  • Many Restaurants
  • A high school
  • Parts of a univercity
  • The gymnasium at a medical school

Do you have asthma? Do you know someone who does? Do you ever wonder what caused it?

A pile of fiberglass laying on the ground. It's everywhere.

Red movie theater seats with popcorn spilled on the front seat and fiberglass lined ducts above with small pieces of glass floating around getting blown down on the seats.

The last time I went to see a movie the air in the theater was so bad I felt sick for three days after. I should have left the minute I walked in, however the movie was Star Wars and my husband was way too excited to just leave. The theater had been renovated a couple of years prior, however people rarely think to replace the air system. The ductwork was fiberglass lined and it was blowing into the air.
