Making a mess after I tried to scrub a non washable air filter

According to the article I was reading, I needed to buy a whole-property air purification gadget, plus all the issues with indoor air quality would be solved.

The article was long, so I skimmed through the information I thought I needed plus even called the number the property repair supplier had provided. I ordered an media air cleaner, waited for the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C specialist to supply it, plus showed me how it worked! When the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C professional came, he showed me how to use it, but pierre was the name on his work tag. As he was setting it up, Pierre asked what had inspired the purchase, plus I told him about the article I had read on their supplier website. He was glad that I had taken the time to read it since he had personally authored it. Pierre told me that people rarely take care of their Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C component plus then complain when air quality deteriorates. When he said that, I realized there was much I had skipped while reading the article, plus since it was too late to admit it, I asked Pierre to conduct full Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C service. He discovered that my air filter was harmd plus asked me what had transpired. I told him the only thing I had done was to scrub it twice plus nothing more. He was shocked, plus he said to me that the type of filter I had was not washable, plus the only thing I had managed to do was to harm it. This caused some harm to the air purification help of the smart Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C. The air purification in the property had been tampered with, which is why I had felt the need for the new gadget. I would also need to have duct cleaning.
