Holiday plants that can be toxic to your pets.

Happiness and cheer are in the air for the holidays; but there are few decorations pet owners should be aware of. While we love the traditional holiday plants that accent our shiny decorations, some can be harmful to our furry little friends. Pets are naturally curious about new things popping up all over the house, especially ones that they could potentially turn into a mid-day snack. Of course when your mouth is the only way to pick things up, many things can make a dog or cat sick.

Some plants can do more harm than others to our four legged family members. Contrary to popular belief, poinsettias are actually mildly toxic if ingested but could leave a rash on an animal's sensitive skin.

Mistletoe on the other hand could do some damage to a dog or cat. When ingested they could have gastrointestinal upset, as well as slow heartbeat, change in mental function, and have a hard time breathing. It is recommended to keep these plants far out of reach of curious pets.

The Holly berry has been known to cause diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy and upset stomach. If your pet has ingested one of these berries they should be seen by your vet as soon as possible.

Two other plants to avoid around your beloved furbabies are Amaryllis and Daffodils. These can cause a variety of unwelcome symptoms including vomiting, loss of appetite, acting depressed and upset stomach.

The Gator Clean crew is wishing you and your family a safe and happy holiday season!

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 to your carpets.

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.
