Why All Natural Cleaning Is Important

Why All Natural Cleaning Is Important

There's nothing like a freshly shampooed carpet to brighten your house and breathe new life into the room. Do you know what is in commercial carpet cleaners and what dangers may be left behind once the carpet cleaning crew leaves? Many commercial carpet cleaning solution are full of toxic chemicals that can be detrimental to the health of your family and pets.

Yes, your carpets will be clean, look clean, and smell good, but what many people don't know is that commercial carpet shampoos contain toxic chemicals such as perchlorethylene and ammonium hydroxide. These chemicals linger in your carpet as it dries and can still be found in the fibers weeks and months after cleaning. Young children and pets are especially at risk of becoming ill and possibly suffering long term effects from being exposed to recently cleaned carpets.

This toxic soup could contain carcinogens which can damage the liver, kidneys, and nervous system. When inhaled they can irritate eyes, skin, and respiratory passages. Children are at risk for developing a lifelong learning/behavioral disorder called Kawasaki Disease. The owners of Gator Clean found this out the hard way when their baby daughter became very sick after they had their carpets cleaned. You can read their story here.

You wouldn't think a simple thing like having your carpet cleaned could change your life forever in ways you could never imagine, but it could. This is why Gator Clean is so passionate about using all natural cleaners and cleaning processes. The water-based, all natural, non-toxic cleaners dry fast and are able to be walked on laid on a played on just an hour after cleaning.

A clean carpet should never worry a parent if it is safe or not. At the end of the day we are reassured that our customers are enjoying clean and safe carpets.

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!

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.

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.
