Improving The DMV Indoor Air Quality

cover1

 

As summer and vacations come to an end many people find themselves spending more and more time indoors. The days are slowly getting shorter as we transition to fall and we naturally move to a mainly indoor environment. When we do, it is important that we consider our indoor air quality. The American Lung Association reports that up to 70% of U.S. households have poor indoor air quality, and during a time of COVID, it’s critical that we give ourselves and our families every advantage available when it comes to respiratory health.

 

Regular maintenance of your home’s air duct system helps maintain the highest quality of your indoor air. 

 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) explains that duct cleaning refers to the cleaning of the heating and cooling components of your home’s forced air systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing. Think of this as your furnace, your AC and all the ducts that deliver air to and from those systems.

 

If these ducts and systems are not properly installed, maintained and operated, these components may become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen or other debris. Over time, even the best systems wear and leak air, decreasing the overall effectiveness of the system and costing you, the homeowner, more money in heating and cooling bills. Leaks also often draw in moisture. During especially wet summers, like the August we just had, it’s possible for moisture to be present and the potential for mold growth inside the system is increased. Mold inside ducts can be released into the home’s living space causing allergic reactions or other symptoms in people if they are exposed to them. 

 

 

Since it’s almost fall, its a great time to have your system looked at to see if you are due for a cleaning. Regular duct cleaning has a number of other benefits, including your home’s heating and cooling efficiency and reducing your home’s energy costs. If you have pets, or if members of your household are sensitive to allergies, regular duct cleaning can do wonders for making noticeable improvements to the quality of the indoor air

                   

If you decide to have your heating and cooling system cleaned, it is important to make sure the service provider agrees to clean all components of the system and is qualified to do so. Failure to clean a component of a contaminated system will result in re-contamination of the entire system, thus negating any potential benefits. Methods of duct cleaning vary, although standards have been established by industry associations concerned with air duct cleaning. Star Quality Services uses state-of-the-art cameras and tools to dislodge dirt and other debris in ducts, then vacuum them out using high-powered vacuum cleaners.

Had my dryer air-ducts cleaned today and Ben was very knowledgeable & was able to remove a ton of lint out if my ducts. I was amazed and thankful by how much lint had built up in there. Thank-you Star Quality Cleaning! Best service in the dmv!

I called them for a dryer vent cleaning and they were able to accomodate me so fast! I had called another company before who came in and said they couldn’t do it, that they would call me back because the driveway was not making it easy to put the ladder.. of course they never did.. These guys however came on time and so ready to problem solve! We got the ladder in and all the cleaning was done in less than 1hr. Would def call them again, great service!

Prompt and punctual. But shockingly expensive—$360 to clean a dryer duct, about half the cost of a new dryer! They charge by the foot so be warned if you have a long duct.

Ben is very professional and thorough. He is also organized. Despite the dirty work he is doing, he keeps all the spaces he is working in looking clean. I have recommended him to my friends and will hire him again in the future.
