Heaven forbid that you should ever have to travel through such neighborhoods out of necessity or quite by accident or emergency. Particularly at night, they are quite dangerous, aren’t they? And they are dangerous during the day as well. The obvious danger always seems to be crime. But then there is the grime as well. As you drive by, you notice the parlous state of many of these buildings. That’s just from the outside. What about the interiors? What kind of dangers loom for those that enter such places at night, or day?
In many of these places, such buildings’ vital fixtures and fittings have not seen the light of day for many a year. Among the many components of such fixtures and fittings would be your air vents and grilles. If they have not been ripped out or damaged to shreds in such derelict environments, they remain in a parlous state. But as a passerby, you would not notice this too much. Or would you? You see, there are many of those who live and operate within reasonably good neighborhoods who have a tendency to neglect and forget.
It is simply something not seen and heard. If it is there at all, it is in the back of the mind of the property owner or tenant. But soon enough, it will be at the forefront. You would hardly not notice. Fortunately, the damage is not entirely done. Vents and grilles can still be cleaned. And thereafter, the property owner would have to make quite sure that they are well maintained on a regular basis. But even if the proverbial damage were to be done, new replacements can be had and these tend to be a lot more sustainable and hardy than the old.
