Working at a farm store and believe that there’s bad air quality

I work at a small farm store ever since I’ve graduated college, until I can find a full-time job.

I’ve been working there since I was in high school and seasonally when I would come home on breaks from college. It’s not a bad job and it adds some money to my bank account each week. I do work on a farm but it is not a cattle farm. It is a crop farm and we sell a lot of fruits and vegetables. Most of the produce that we sell is our but other times we’ll get it locally. There is also a bakery section where we make sandwiches, muffins, cupcakes, brownies and all sorts of bakery items. When I was working there yesterday my nose kept running. According to some of the kitchen staff that do a lot of the baking their noses have been running as well. There is a vent and a fan that brings in cold air and circulates into the kitchen so the kitchen is cooled down. We think that the store does not have very good air quality. The air that is coming into the kitchen is from the cooler. And in the cooler it is very moist and dark and there is a potential that mold particles are in the air. I think that our owner should have an HVAC technician come and do an air quality test. Or at least maybe check the air filters the see if they need to be changed. Working in bad quality of air is very unhealthy when it comes to the upper respiratory system.
