May is National Allergy Awareness Month.

May is National Allergy Awareness Month.

As we welcome in the month of May, we also usher in the start of allergy season and all of the not so fun symptoms that come along with it. Allergy sufferers understand the struggle of itchy, watering eyes, sneezing, scratchy throats and stuffy noses. Medications to treat allergies fly off the shelves this time of year and it's time to consider taking a good look around your home to eliminate allergens that are the source of this incessant suffering.

First, find out what you're actually allergic to. This Old Home suggests: Visiting an allergist will help you focus your preventative measures. The most common offenders are dust mites, mold, pollens, and pet dander. "There's no point in making changes at home if you don't address your particular allergies," says Laurie Ross, editor of Allergy and Asthma Today. "Who knows, you might be allergic to cats, and here you are keeping your windows closed."

Next, take a good look around each room of your home - beginning with the bedroom. If dust is an issue or allergy trigger for you, schedule a professional cleaning of your mattress before covering your mattress and pillows with covers designed specifically to repel dust mites. A good night's sleep is crucial to combating everything we face in life - including allergy symptoms.

Avoid bringing the problem from the outside in by laying down doormats on both the inside and outside of entryways, and have friends and family remove their shoes as they come in, to avoid spreading the allergens throughout your home.

Schedule a professional floor cleaning service to address the irritants at the source on carpets, tiles, hardwood flooring or travertine surfaces. Following the cleaning, update your vacuum cleaner to one with a HEPA filter to maintain the fight against allergens in your home.

For these and other helpful ways to combat the pesky allergens this season, contact the professionals at Gator Clean today.

Daniele and Kelly did an awesome job cleaning my tile and grout, my floors already looked great, and then they came back and colorsealed my grout. I love it!! I always lived my porcelains plank floors, but hated my grout color. Now I REALLY love my floors!!

I spoke to Danielle about coming to clean my AC ducts and she was an absolute delight to work with. She was informative and honest. The scheduling happened immediately and they arrived in the next couple of days. The service was thorough and professional. They cleaned everything perfectly and even cleaned up after themselves. When they left, it was like they were never there, except my vents look better than ever! I would highly recommend their services. We talked and joked while they worked and it was a delightful experience. They only took about two hours to get everything done and I couldn't be happier with their work! 5 stars!!!

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.

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.
