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.

Danielle and Kelly were so great! They had my dryer vent with over 12 years of garbage cleaned out in under an hour. What a fire hazard that could’ve been. My dryer was no longer drying my laundry because the vent was completely blocked. Don’t be like me, Clean out your vents every year people!!

One of the best duct cleaning companies I've ever worked with. As a mold remediation professional I've called on them to help my personal clients many times. They are always on time, fairly priced and very professional. Their reliability and consistent results, is unlike any other I've worked with. Highly recommended. Thank you Gator Clean!

Here you might learn why your house smells, and how you can get rid of that lingering scent and breathe deep in your own home again.
