Some of my goods were damaged clearly during transportation. Additionally, it was impossible to arrange delivery and pick up times once you picked your day. (This inconvenienced the buyers of my home, as the storage containers sat in front of the house until 5pm despite closing at 10am.) However, I booked them for their convenience and their customer service is great.

Fiberglass air filters are very thin and they have a simple flat panel surface for trapping particles from the air. They were originally developed to protect your heating and air conditioning equipment, not to improve your indoor air quality. They can often be purchased for less than $1 apiece. Unfortunately, they remove less than 10% of the air pollutants from your home. They have a MERV rating between 1 and 4.
This water purification system connects directly to your kitchen sink’s cold water pipe in just a few minutes, and it's designed to purify municipal water. It uses a 3-stage filtration process to remove all sorts of contaminants, including chlorine, lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium, herbicides, pesticides, sediment, algae, molds, bad taste, odors, and more. Plus, this water filter can be used for up to five years!
Yes, yes, I am a broken record. I stress this in every portable storage container review because it is the best upside ever for someone like me who hates driving and is terrified of hauling my giant stuff in a giant truck all by myself. Door to Door offers the option of storing your stuff at a facility and picking it up yourself (or having movers do it) or letting Door to Door transport the items.
Always clean the dryer filter after every load.    This will help reduce the amount of lint going down the whole dryer duct inside your house.     Having excess lint in your dryer trap can cause the dryer to work harder and even overheat.   Go outside and feel the airflow coming out of the exhaust vent when the dryer is running.   There should be a strong, hot flow of air once the dryer has been running a few minutes.  Have the dryer ducting between the dryer and the exterior cleaned about once a year.   If this duct becomes clogged, there are the possibilities of overheating and fire.    Here’s a helpful link for more information
"The day of move in Boston was particularly crazy because the city had closed off our street for major construction. Door-to-door worked with me on the phone to help notify the driver and then he did some voodoo magic getting those pods from his truck that was parked on a neighboring side street that was one way the wrong way and to our front door… Mad props to these guys and their drivers."
Unfortunately, HEPA filters restrict too much air to be used as a traditional furnace filter. A HEPA filter is extremely efficient, but a significant amount of air pressure is needed to force air through a HEPA filter. A typical HVAC system will not be equipped to provide enough air pressure to use a HEPA filter (which basically means that no air would blow out of your registers). In order to use a HEPA filter for whole house filtration, you need to install a separate HEPA filtration system. A system like this will pull some of the air out of the regular air flow through your furnace, and then boost the air and pass it through a HEPA filter. The extremely filtered air is then returned back into the normal air flow.  Source
Regularly changing your air filter is an easy way to keep your furnace or A/C running efficiently – especially during peak seasons. A fresh home air filter will help extend the life of your HVAC unit and reduce maintenance costs over time. Most importantly, you and your family will breathe fresh air and avoid harmful airborne allergens and viruses.
Compared to The Home Depot’s method of ranking air filters (FPR), MERV has wider range. While FPR’s rating system goes from 1 to 10, MERV’s rating system goes from 1 to 20. FPR 10 is similar in strength to MERV 20, since they are both the highest rating value. However, FPR 1 doesn’t necessarily equate to MERV 1. It isn’t until FPR 4 and 5 that filters start trapping larger particles like household dust and lint, dust mites, pollen and pet dander. Meanwhile, MERV 1 to 4 will trap all these pollutants. Some examples of MERV below:
Hello. I have a 30 gallon tank I clean religiously every Monday to keep optimal and healthy happy fish. Freshwater with a couple mollies “Pearl, Spot and Elvis”, 2 guppies “Nemo and Dory”, an albino Plecko “Dart”, a bristlenoe Plecko “Dino” (very lazy and doesn’t do anything for my tank hence the albino plecko lol), and a community Betta “Cinderella” (yes that’s right a Betta in with my other community fish). She loves to play in the water flow from the side hanging filter BUT I can’t stand the noise it makes constantly like a waterfall. I was hoping for something a bit quieter but not to much it would hurt Cinderella’s scales. Also the bettas eat so slow with side hanging filtration I have to turn it off at every feeding to allow her time to eat otherwise as slow as she eats all her food just gets pulled away and she goes hungry and I need something I can trust to not harm her AND allow her food to rest at the top to eat comfortably. Also I’m on disability so the more affordable on upkeep such as replacement filters I NEED to keep in mind because this side hanger the filters are getting expensive. I need to change them every other week because they have become so cheaply made that cleaning them just doesn’t get the job done but once MAYBE twice now. Thanks in advance.
Despite anything, management tells you. By accepting this job you have decided you are a door to door salesman. Did not start this way, new management in the last few years has run this company reputation into the ground. No more company appointments, they expect you to sell all your family and then become a door to door salesman. 100% commission, job that requires you to work 6 days a week. Just a matter of time... for the lawsuit. Same goes for Chatsworth and Anaheim offices. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this company. You will burn through your savings.

I have been using washable filters for 15 years. They are simply blasted out in my driveway with a hose (opposite of airflow), drained about 10 minutes and put back in the furnace. The furnace dries the filter out in minutes, so bacteria is never a concern. We wash them once a year, as we only run the furnace for about 3-4 months in the winter and only then about half time (live in California). Not only does it save replacing them, but saves a trip to the store, which is probably the most environmentally part. I recently had the furnace looked at by an installer and he stated we had very little dust buildup since it was last checked 9 years ago. If we need clean air in our house, we open it up for an hour or two - on warm days of course. Simple. Washable filters are cheap and environmentally friendly. Think about what happens to all those disposed of filters you toss!

The filter with more pleats per foot across the face will allow you to have better airflow throughout your home.  The more air that flows through your house, the more often it is passed and re-circulated through the filter. The end result is cleaner air because of the higher frequency of air passes through the filter.  For example, if you could find a way to install a hospital grade operating room filter in your home unit, it wouldn’t do you much good because your fan and motor doesn’t have enough power to push enough air through it.  A good quality filter with a high MERV 11 rating can actually leave you with dirtier air than using a cheap 1 dollar filter if the MERV 11 filter doesn’t have enough pleats per foot.  Less pleats per foot is a cheap and dirty way for filter sellers to trick buyers into thinking they are getting a better deal. Insist on MERV 11 filters that have a minimum of 18 pleats per foot!  Source
Using more storage units means spending more money. It also might require more drives back and forth either on the part of the company or you. That sound you hear is the swoosh of all the money being sucked out of your pockets. Still, I can understand how this option can be convenient and affordable for kids moving into the dorms and those in smaller homes and apartments. And I - as I've mentioned time and again - appreciate the thought of not having to drive this stuff on a huge truck. Yes, it's always worth repeating.
