Please remove the plug-in air fresheners from the computer room. This is my second year at Wake, and I spent the first half of this semester wondering why the computer lab smelled so bad this year. I finally figured it out! Many people are sensitive to air “fresheners” and other perfumed products, which can exacerbate asthma. I recognize that last year the lab smelled like a locker room, not pleasant, but if the problem is moldy carpet or other dampness issues, you are not making it better with air fresheners. Mold is also dangerous to health, and covering it up with air fresheners just increases the risk that students’ health is being compromised. If there is a problem with the carpet, pull it up and put down a tile or wood floor.
The air fresheners have been removed.
