Nashville Says ‘No’ to Harmful Floor Refinishing

Increasingly aware of the harmful effects of hardwood refinishing, Nashville residents are starting to turn to a greener, safer option for restoring their hardwood floors.

(Nashville, TN) – Across the city, residents are growing increasingly alarmed about the long-lasting effects of traditional floor refinishing products. One local business aims to provide the city with a solution.

Local businesses providing sand-based floor refinishing services may soon find themselves at the mercy of a growing number of informed homeowners and condo-owners in Music City. Residents hoping to restore shine to their worn floors have started to use reliable Internet resources to evaluate what really goes into the process.

Local business owner and residential cleaning expert Jason Adkins confirmed,

“Traditional floor refinishing is more dangerous than many people realize,” Adkins showed.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency agrees. The organization has linked the chemicals used in traditional floor refinishing to eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, dizziness, and even damage to the central nervous system, liver and kidneys.

But when Adkins founded Brighthouse Luxury Green Home Cleaning, few alternatives existed. Intent on abstaining from the common method of sanding and refinishing, Adkins persisted in his pursuit of a floor restoration process which would be safe for homeowners, their children and their pets.

After years of watching his clients hire sanders to refinish their floors, this summer, Adkins finally discovered a solution. He calls his method “Hardwood Rejuvenation.” Like the other cleaning services provided by Brighthouse, it has proven to be an effective alternative for both green-minded homeowners and asthma sufferers alike.

“Hardwood Rejuvenation is attractive because of its neutral, mechanical method of cleaning the top layer of hardwood,” Adkins explained.

While some Nashville residents with seriously damaged floors may continue turning to traditional refinishing methods, Hardwood Rejuvenation has proven to be an excellent alternative for informed parents and pet owners.

Used in conjunction with other natural cleaning methods, Hardwood Rejuvenation is quickly becoming a favorite among environmentally conscious locals. With a growing number of eco-friendly options for residential and commercial cleaning needs, Nashvillians are well on their way to making the city a cleaner, safer place to live and work.

Luxury Cleaning Goes Green in Jacksonville

Jacksonville residents can consider the environment when choosing a luxury cleaning service for their home and business.

(Jacksonville, FL) – As more Floridians are opting to leave their home and business cleaning to the pro’s, a Nashville-based, green-cleaning service expands to Jacksonville to bring a unique offer to the table: luxury home and commercial cleaning services performed with the environment in mind.

On Wednesday, August 28, Brighthouse Luxury Green Home Cleaning will officially open its doors here in Jacksonville. It will begin taking reservations for in-home cleaning appointments starting on September 4. Both Jason Adkins, founder of the business, and Alex Varkonda, its regional manager, are excited about connecting with Jacksonville’s green community:

In an interview with Adkins and Varkonda, Varkonda demonstrated the connection between the company’s expansion and the existing environmental efforts in Jacksonville:

“Jacksonville is realizing that ‘Going Green’ is not merely a trend, but a necessary change of lifestyle to protect this earth that we call home.   We’re really looking forward to being a small part of the bigger movement.”

Varkonda believes that the company’s presence in Jacksonville will complement other green initiatives in the city including green energy movements, organic gardening and other environmental efforts.

To kick off the Jacksonville expansion, Adkins and Varkonda have decided to offer locals a special 8-Hour Home Rejuvenation offer. This offer is specially designed for residents looking for a green way to deep-clean their homes.

“We are committed to being responsible and taking care of the environment in the best way that we can. For us, that means using safer products and the right processes to reduce our impact,” Varkonda explained. “And in the end our customers have a simply green and clean home.”

While Brighthouse may be new to Jacksonville, it’s certainly not new to the business.

Currently providing luxury, green home-cleaning services to over 900 residents in Nashville, Brighthouse leads the industry in both the quantity and quality of residences and commercial spaces served. Managers, tenants and residents of upscale condominiums, lofts and law offices in the Nashville area are all very familiar with the level of customer service and expertise which Brighthouse brings to the table.

This group has also grown to appreciate the company’s involvement in the community. Cleaning for a Reason, Books from Birth and Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital are all organizations which have benefitted from Brighthouse’s support in Tennessee.

Of his intention to continue this tradition in Florida, Adkins announced:

“We are really looking forward to getting involved with the Jacksonville community.”

In their common goal of making the city a cleaner, healthier place to live and do business, Jacksonville business owners and residents alike are excited about welcoming innovative organizations to the community.

Rejuvenate or Refinish? Your Floors Want You to Read This.

hardwood floor refinishingUnless you are new to the Brighthouse family, you already know that we are committed to discovering and offering the newest and greenest ways to clean your home and office. After years of experience working with clients in need of an innovative approach to cleaning hardwood, we decided that it was time for us to take the lead in developing a solution.

So, if you want to know why we’re smiling so much this month, it’s because we’ve finally decided to offer this solution to you- our valued client. We’ve found the right technicians to deliver the service (20 years of experience!), and honestly… we know you’re going to love it.

It’s a three-step method called Hardwood Rejuvenation, and we just can’t say enough good things about it. We’ve already started telling some clients about the new service, and many of you have been really surprised to learn that there is an effective and green alternative to traditional hardwood refinishing.

Since we always want to make sure that our clients get what they want out of the hardwood solution they choose, we’ve imagined and described a couple of scenarios below to help you make the right decision.

Which situation sounds more like yours? Do you see yourself as a John or a Christine?

Let us know. Your dull, worn floors will thank you later.

John always tries to take care of his floors, but the newest addition to his family- a labrador retriever puppy named Scout- isn’t always a huge help. Besides adding scratch marks to the already scuffed-up floors, Scout is also having a tough time with the potty-training process. Since John’s safe, green cleaning solutions aren’t always within reach when he discovers Scout’s little “surprises,” a fair amount of build-up from some common household cleaners has started to become apparent. While Scout is certainly making some progress, stains are showing up at an alarming rate. Finally, making matters worse is that even before he brought Scout home, John had been living with dull, uneven-looking floors.

Christine bought her aging home from a large family about five years ago, and she never got around to doing anything about the damaged floors. She’s ready to put the house back on the market, but the floors are in pretty bad shape. Large cracks and separation in the living room are a definite eyesore, and deeply set-in stains in the dining room don’t look much better. Several months ago, a major leak gave Christine a huge headache, and she didn’t catch it in time… a considerable amount of moisture crept into the wood, and some major warping occurred.

For problems like John’s, Hardwood Rejuvenation is definitely going to be the way to go. It’s less expensive and faster. Best of all, nobody (not even Scout!) needs to leave home when we perform the service.

For more major issues like Christine’s, traditional hardwood refinishing may be required. However, since only professionals can accurately assess hardwood damage, you should contact us today, even if you think your situation sounds more like Christine’s. Our services are 100% guaranteed, and we’re always happy to provide expert insight when you have questions about cleaning your home and office.

And oh yeah, tell your floors we said hi… and that we’ll see them soon. (We both know they deserve a little attention.)
