What’s Better for Allergies: Carpet or Hardwood Floors?

Allergy sufferers are always looking for ways to reduce the allergens in their homes so they can breath easier. What’s Better for Allergies, Carpet or Hardwood Floors The material on your floors could potentially contribute to or help reduce allergy triggers. Yes, sweeping and vacuuming can help, but you could stop sneezing fits just by changing the very floor under your feet.

It's a common misconception that hardwood or tile floors help reduce allergens. Actually, the opposite is true. It turns out that carpet can keep your allergies at bay by acting as a filter for all of the annoying little things that give you a stuffy nose. A properly cleaned carpet can even help prevent asthma attacks.

How does this work? You may be wondering. The answer is…science. More specifically, gravity. What goes up must come down, way down! When dust particles, pet dander. And pollen is in the air they eventually float down and settle all the way to the very bottom of your carpet. Then they are safely sucked up into the vacuum instead of up your nose.

When you have hardwood floors or even tile, the household particles keep getting kicked up as everyone walks around. It turns out carpet is a fantastic clean air filter after all.

Of course, no matter what kind of flooring you have in your home, keeping them clean is the best way to reduce allergens. We also recommend frequent deep cleaning for all floor types by a professional like Gator Clean.


How often should my dryer vent be professionally cleaned?

Nowadays everyone either owns or has access to an electric clothes dryer (those who yearn for the nostalgia of wooden clothespins and a natural breeze to dry their clothes need not continue reading). How often should I clean my dryer vent?A dryer provides us with an incredibly faster alternative to line-drying and can still give the same kind of comfort and aroma when dry. One big difference is those puffy, gray, little balls of lint that end up in the deep corners of pocket linings once fresh out of the dryer. Where did that come from? Is there more?

There absolutely is, and it's one of the biggest reasons for cleaning your dryer vent!

How often should you clean your dryer vent? There isn't a one size fits all answer to this. It depends on how new, or old, your dryer is and also how much laundry is done in your home. Cleaning the actual vent of the dryer can range from once, to three or 4 times a year. This is based on the amount of laundry, so if you live alone – once a year should be sufficient. A family of 4+ would have to look into cleaning their vent much more frequently.

How can you be sure it's time to clean out the vent? If it seems like your clothes are still damp after a cycle that usually has everything toasty and warm, this could be an early sign. If it takes 2 or 3 cycles to thoroughly dry a load of laundry, it's highly likely your vent is clogged and needs to be looked at right away.

If you ignore the low maintenance of your dryer's vent, it can end in tragedy. A dryer vent that is clogged with lint holds an incredibly high risk of fire. In 2010 alone, there were 15,000 dryer fires in the U.S. according to the National Fire Protection Agency (Gibbs). To prevent this, it is possible to clean the dryer vent yourself, but it is best to know what you are looking at and how to put everything back together again.

Calling a professional like Gator Clean, will ensure you have it cleaned the right way the first time. Make sure your vents are clear today, so you can keep your clothes toasty; not burnt!


Why Tile and grout restoration is important.

With the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, our tile and grout take a daily beating! Why Tile and grout restoration is important

Tile and grout restoration to the rescue!

Grout is porous by nature and absorbs dirt, dust, dyes, and grease quickly and easily. Dirty mop water or a dirty mop adds even more soil to your grout which is why even after a thorough cleaning, your grout still seems dingy.

The purpose of tile and grout restoration is to quickly and efficiently restore the beauty of your floors. When the job is done professionally, dirt and grime are blasted from the grout with a powerful jet of super heated cleaning solutions.

Tile and grout restoration includes cleaning and polishing your floors to a sparkle while buffing out minor scuffs and scratches.

Following your tile and grout restoration, a sealing is crucial. Sealing your grout prevents further liquids and soils from penetrating the surface and makes maintenance much easier and effective.
