A Clean Home Doesn't Stop At The Front Door

A Clean Home Doesn't Stop At The Front Door

A clean home is a beautiful home! If your home is your castle, then the outdoors must be your kingdom. In a way, we rule over all wildlife and woodland creatures. What we do in our home and around it directly affects our furry, feathered or scaly citizens. Most of us do not want to intentionally harm them, but many things we do can be detrimental to their health and survival.

Being green goes way past using all natural cleaners, recycling and saving energy. It means keeping our environment in the most natural state as possible. There are people who go to the extremes to keep the planet clean, but there are easy ways we can all help prevent our waste to getting onto the habitat of native creature.

Florida is known for its wide variety of aquatic life and is home to a large amount of woodland animals. When litter collects on roadsides, the shores of our lakes and beaches, the wildlife will often mistaken it for food or get entangled in it. Even the smallest piece of trash like cigarettes butts, released balloons, bottle caps, and plastic straws can be deadly to an animal. According to the Humansociety.org "250 million tons of trash is discarded every year in the U.S., a large amount of it ends up as litter. Plastic items become intestinal blockages; baited fishing lines entangle limbs, hindering movement and causing dismemberment; and aluminum cans with leftover soda or beer turn into razor sharp traps."

Recently a (warning graphic contentvideo has been passed around on social media of a marine biologist pulling a 13 inch plastic straw from a poor sea turtle's nose. It is hard to watch but is a grim reminder that everything we do has dire consequences.

Keeping our homes and world around it keeps everyone safe and healthy. Of course we all know the solution, sometimes we need reminding or a reason to stay diligent about the natural world around us. (source)

What Your Neighbors Say About Gator Clean

I hired Gator Clean to clean my carpets, home air ducts, and dryer duct and vent. Danielle and Kelly were pleasant, cheerfully answered my many questions, and did a thorough job. My carpet is old (10+ years) and had not been cleaned in a few years due to COVID; it ended up looking nicer than I expected! I was especially impressed by how careful they were with my possessions (e.g., covering things to protect them from dust that might fall from a ceiling vent) and how well they cleaned up afterward. This was my first experience with the company and I am impressed!

When I called Gator Clean, I left a message inquiring about their services and pricing. I received a return call with 10 minutes. I found the prices and availability to be better than other companies. They came out within a week and cleaned my air ducts. They were ON TIME, FRIENDLY, and PROFESSIONAL. They explained the entire process, did a fantastic job and cleaned up after ducts were cleaned. Other companies need to take lessons from their staff! Highly recommend Gator Clean.

I contacted Gator Clean to clean our dryer vent. Daniele was professional and set the appointment for the next day. She and Kelly arrived on time, very conscientious of our home. Cleaned our dryer vent and cleaned up behind themselves! Quick and efficient. Will definitely be using them again in the future!

This time of year brings warm memories of time spent outdoors, hot dogs on the grill, and lounging by the pool. It also brings an increase in allergens, humidity, and dirt to your carpets.

Cost Factors in Cleaning the Air Ducts of a Florida Home.

Cost Factors in Cleaning the Air Ducts of a Florida Home.

The cost of maintaining a home can add up pretty fast. Unlike renting, homeowners are solely responsible for repairs and upkeep of the various parts of their house. Some maintenance issues are more pressing than others, leaving many problems to simmer on the back burner. This has the potential to create a more giant headache out of issues you thought weren't that big of a deal.
