Carpet Care Tips to Help You Enjoy Summer.

Carpet Care Tips to Help You Enjoy Summer.

Warmer days are finally here. The sun is shining brighter and longer, the children are home from school and the laid back, relaxing feeling of summer fills the air. 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 in your carpets.

So, here are some ways to stay on top of your carpet cleaning chores while still enjoying some summer fun:

Change up your vacuum routine.
During these summer months, just getting by on a once a week vacuum schedule may not suffice. With pets shedding their fur, children running outside and in tracking in dirt from outside and wind blowing dust through open windows and door, vacuuming at least every other day would be ideal. Frequent vacuuming extends the life of your carpet by inhibiting the buildup of grainy particles that destroy carpet fibers.

Incorporate lots of rugs and mats.
With a good mat in front of entryways - on both sides of the doors - debris and moisture from the bottom of shoes has a chance to be caught by the mat before it makes its way to your carpets. Be sure to clean and change your rugs and mats frequently to prevent a buildup of allergens and dirt within their fibers.

Live by the "no shoes" rule.
Summer time is the perfect time for flip-flops that can easily be slid off outside the door before entering, or just inside the door on the mat, then placed on a shoe rack near the door or another designated area. To keep chemicals, allergens and dirt at bay, simply make it a rule in your home that guests, family and friends remove their shoes before entering in order to protect your carpet.

Have your carpets professionally cleaned.
Ideally, your carpets should be cleaned professionally every 12 to 18 months. While routinely vacuuming aids in removing dirt at a surface level, a professional carpet cleaning service reaches toxins and pollutants that are trapped deep within the fibers of the carpet. Attempting to clean your carpets yourself may seem tempting, but could backfire if a soapy residue is left on the carpet which will invite more dust and dirt. Contact the professionals at Gator Clean today to schedule your first Summer carpet cleaning service.

I hired Gator Clean to clean my air ducts in my house. They did a fantastic job. I had originally called a Port Orange company called Lucky Ducts. The owner of Lucky Ducts told me that since I lived off Big Tree in South Daytona that I was closer to his competitor, Jerry Brittingham, he recommended that I call him instead. When I called Jerry Brittingham, they gave me a quote on the phone of $25 per vent. Then, when they got there, they said that they don't do vent cleaning and gave me a price of $2300 for blowing some plastic stuff through my vent system to seal possible small holes. CRAZY! Gator Clean was wonderful! They honored the quoted price and they came all the way from Eustis /Mt Dora area to South Daytona for no extra fees. Great service, great people!!! THANK YOU!!

From the moment that I spoke to them on the phone about making the appointment to get the dryer a gas dryer vent cleaned out I was very impressed I called back to ask a question and it was after hours and Danielle very nicely called me right back and gave me the answer overall I was very very impressed they did a wonderful job there was a slight complication on my part from when the house was built to where the duck was put in for the dryer she told me Danielle told me how to correct it and get it fixed and told me what time I should get it done and that what I needed to do afterwards which I found very helpful and informative I give them five stars for the job that they did and I've never had a company that was local that would get up on the roof and suck out the lint the roof part of the vent also come in the house and suck out that part of it on it was very nice to have people that you could trust. I look forward to rehiring them every time I need my dryer cleaned out they do a wonderful job and they're very clean. Thank you Danielle for a wonderful experience. Good company to work with easy going and hard workers. Mary Seabury of Mount Dora

By now, everyone is aware of the coronavirus and how it is spread. It is up to us to do our part to contain the spread, such as practicing social distancing, staying home when we can, and wearing masks in public or crowded places. However, COVID 19 can be spread in less obvious ways, such as the HVAC system.
