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.

Nashville Cleaning Service Fights Dirty Against Cancer

Brighthouse Luxury Green Cleaning and Cleaning For A Reason Join Forces to Provide Free Housecleaning and Maid Services to Women Undergoing Treatment for Cancer in Nashville.

Nashville, TN — Brighthouse, a two-year-old Nashville cleaning service that provides eco-friendly, non-toxic cleaning solutions to consumers has partnered with the Texas nonprofit, Cleaning For A Reason.

Brighthouse Luxury Green Home Cleaning ( is one of almost 1,000 companies in the U.S. and Canada that has agreed to provide free cleaning services to women fighting cancer. The venture is a partnership with Cleaning For A Reason, which maintains the website where cancer patients register for the service (

“Any of our 25 employees can attest to the fact that home cleaning is strenuous work,” said Jason Adkins, owner of Brighthouse. “Cancer patients need their strength to tolerate treatment and get well. Brighthouse’s non-toxic cleaning solutions are gentle — a plus for patients whose immune systems are compromised by disease or chemotherapy.”

Even small cleaning tasks, like dusting, can lead to breathing difficulty for some patients. Other patients have difficulty walking following chemotherapy infusions and don’t have the endurance to vacuum or do laundry.

“Besides the health benefits, having a clean home is a point of pride for many women,” added Adkins. “We hope that a Brighthouse cleaning can comfort patients and promote a feeling of well-being as they heal.”

Dreaming of a Green Christmas? Luxury Green Home Cleaning Service Can Spruce Up Your Home for the Holidays and New Year

NASHVILLE, TN – Dec. 4 – When Alison Adkins’ daughter developed asthma, one of the first problems she attacked was ridding her home of excess dust, allergens, and any harsh chemicals that left residue. She switched her household over to non-bleach, non-chlorine “green” products and became so meticulous in her cleaning efforts that a friend suggested she offer a cleaning and greening tune-up to others in the Nashville area where she lives.

BrightHouse Luxury Green Home Cleaning Service ( debuted in September of this year. And, despite a down economy, the company has since tripled its bookings. In addition to complete cleaning with environmentally neutral cleaning products, BrightHouse provides five-star turn-down service with complimentary organic chocolates, tea, and the homeowner’s choice of jasmine, lavender or lemongrass mist aromatherapy.

“My switch to green cleaning was a medical necessity,” said Adkins. “However, my desire to start an environmentally friendly business was inspired by friends and the initiatives Nashville has taken to become a greener municipality.”

Adkins’ husband, who previously worked as the general manager of a 30,000 square foot Nashville estate, helped establish BrightHouse’s cleaning routine and luxury amenity offerings.

Part of serving a luxury clientele includes hiring the best staffers. “The key to our success is communication and trust. All our housekeepers are insured, full-time staffers. We take extra care to match the housekeeper to the home,” said Mrs. Adkins. “Each housekeeper gets to know the home and cleaning routines, which can be customized to the client’s lifestyle. Once a month, a manager inspects the home (unannounced) to make sure the upkeep meets BrightHouse’s quality control standards.”

For a luxury home cleaning service that’s also committed to the environment, BrightHouse fees are surprisingly affordable. The company’s most popular package is for a bi-weekly visit and costs $135. The fee is based on a 3500 sq. ft. home and includes a complete cleaning routine. Unlike other services, BrightHouse doesn’t charge for variables such as the number of bathrooms or pets.

“We spend as much time as the client needs for a thorough, ‘high to low’ cleaning, which includes cleaning places the client can’t see,” said Adkins. “And we’re flexible. If the customer needs to incorporate extra cleaning or laundry into their visits it’s not a problem at all.”

BrightHouse uses only natural, biodegradable, non-toxic, child and animal friendly solutions. Surfaces are wiped using micro-fiber products instead of paper towels. Only vacuums equipped with 5-stage HEPA filtration are used so air is cleaned as housekeeper’s vacuum.
