Allergen Removal

Allergen Removal

If you suffer from allergies or asthma, cleaning your rugs and carpets regularly is the best thing you can do. A clean home is a healthy home. Cleaning will remove fungi, bacteria, dust, pollen, and other pollutants that can aggravate and trigger problems for allergy and asthma sufferers.

Did you know that one out 4 Americans suffer from allergies or have allergic illnesses such as asthma or sinusitis? If you're one of them, you don't need us to tell you how miserable those can be. What you may not know is that dust mite and pet allergens found indoors are one of the leading causes of these allergic diseases.

Dust mite and pet allergens lurking in carpets and furniture can cause a person who has asthma to have an attack. With continued exposure to these allergens, even those people with relatively mild allergies can develop severe, chronic, and even life-threatening illnesses.

Allergy Relief Treatment - Our Process

Many of the allergy-aggravating contaminants in our homes live in our carpets and upholstery, making deep cleaning these surfaces vital – especially for those concerned with the health and allergies. The professionals at Gator Clean will remove allergens such as dust mites and pet dander from your carpets and upholstery, helping to reduce the severity of these allergies.

The place of exposure to the most significant amount of allergen for the longest amount of time is in the bedroom. Up to 60% of the dust mites found in the home are living in your bed, and you spend one-third of your life in the bedroom! And, bedrooms are the easiest area to control as an allergen-free zone. Therefore, the bedroom is the highest priority treatment area.

Your Gator Clean technician will first vacuum the mattress, carpeting, and any draperies or upholstered furniture using an exterior vented vacuum or HEPA-filtration vacuum cleaner. The mattress is then thoroughly cleaned on all surfaces and deodorized (if required). Following cleaning, Allergy Relief Treatment is applied to all mattress surfaces using a fine-mist application. The mattress is placed in a drying position, and a special air mover is used to speed the drying process, which, depending upon temperature and humidity, usually takes about an hour.

The same safe cleaning agents are used to clean the bedroom carpeting and if desired, any upholstered furniture or rugs, followed by an application of Allergy Relief Treatment. Once again, humidity down to normal levels promptly. Baseboards and windowsills are cleaned as well. We suggest washing the bedding and pillows in hot water and adding two cups of Allergy Relief Treatment to the rinse cycle. So effective as a laundry treatment, this need only be used every fourth washing.

While servicing the bedroom is the highest priority, significant benefits may also result from cleaning and treating other areas where allergy sufferers spend lots of time. These areas include the upholstered furniture and carpeting in rooms where time is spent watching television, reading and so on. Also, all carpeted areas and upholstery that pets have access to should be cleaned and treated.

A Clean Carpet is a Healthy Carpet

Recent EPA studies confirm that periodic, professional cleaning using truck-mounted hot water extraction reduced the number of contaminants and allergens in the home. Getting your carpets, rugs, and upholstery thoroughly and regularly cleaned by a professional carpet cleaning service gets rid of dust mites and pollutants, keeping your family safe and healthier. Gator Clean can help keep your carpets and rugs – the filters on your floor – in tip-top shape. By keeping your home carpets and rugs clean, you'll enjoy cleaner air and the benefits of breathing more comfortably.

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!

Taking on mold and mildew in your home.

Taking on mold and mildew in your home.

In damp, dark places, mold and mildew grow fast, and once it gains a foothold in your house, it takes a lot of work to eliminate it. So, how do you know if it's growing just beneath the surface of your carpet and on your tiles?

8 tips to keep your dryer vents unclogged.

8 tips to keep your dryer vents unclogged.

Here are eight practical tips to help your dryer vent stay clear longer:

1. Clean the lint screen. Pick lint off after every use. Handwash the screen occasionally to remove fabric softener residue (dry thoroughly before putting it back). Once monthly, use a skinny, long-handled brush to clear the lint trap, the cavity where the screen sits. (The first time I ever did this, to a 2-year-old dryer, I pulled out a softball-sized clump of dust.)

2. Clear around the dryer. Make sure the area under and behind your dryer is free of dust bunnies, animal hair, etc. Never stack your freshly washed clothes on top of the dryer.

3. Keep unhemmed or torn fabrics out of the dryer. Raw edges, such as those of quilt pieces or cleaning cloths, fray more easily, producing larger quantities of lint. Hem them first or line dry.

4. Avoid machine drying rubber or plastic. Bathmats, pet beds, running shoes, and other items containing rubber or plastic may deteriorate when machine dried. Particles can flake off, clogging your dryer vent.

5. Always air-dry dirty clothing or towels. If you dry, say, a sandy bathing suit, all that sand will end up in your dryer and its vent system. NOT a good idea. Air-dry soiled items instead.

6. Never cover the vent outlet with a screen. The vent flap should be sufficient to keep out small animals. A screen will trap some of the lint, which ought to be going outdoors.

7. Install a metal duct extender. If you haven't already, do yourself and your family a favor by installing a smooth metal duct extender (the piece that connects the dryer to the wall vent). Plastic and foil are easily crushed, restricting airflow ... not to mention that they're both flammable at high temperatures.

8. Buy a full-size dryer. Is it time to replace your dryer? Unless you're squeezed for space, purchase a full-size model, rather than a smaller, stackable one, and have it professionally installed. It will do a much better job of blowing air, as well as drying your laundry.
