Tips For Going Green This New Year


A new year is the perfect time for new habits and healthier decisions! Of course, personal resolutions are essential, but you can also consider resolutions meant to benefit the world as a whole. Make 2021 the year of going green and making environmentally friendly choices. It's easy, and here are some of our favorite tips for you to consider as we move forward into the rest of this year!

Daily Routine Changes

Simple things like how long you shower and wash your hands for and the kind of bags you use at grocery stores are the ones that need to be considered. Make a change in your daily routine to incorporate more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly choices. Take shorter showers and turn off the water while you brush your teeth. Don't forget your reusable bags, invest in reusable water bottles, and buy products made from recycled materials. It’s that easy!

Recycle More

Don't let those plastic bottles and paper boxes pile up in your garbage! Make a stride towards green living by starting a recycling routine for you and your family. This little change will make a significant impact moving forward. Incorporating a recycling routine into your home will ensure that everyone else who lives with you will also participate, helping more people start making a green impact.

Consider Environmentally Friendly Services

This winter season, your home might need a few upgrades and maintenance checks to ensure everything operates smoothly. During this process, try to find professionals that use environmentally friendly products and services.

Dusting 101


Homeowners may think they know all they need to know about dusting, but then their home ends up dirty again the day after a massive clean. Whether you consider yourself a dusting pro or not, there are a few crucial tips for anyone to follow to keep everything tidy for longer. Here are some smart dusting tips we highly recommend that will change your cleaning routine forever.

Dust In The Correct Direction

While dusting, keep in mind that dust falls. So, clean top to bottom in whichever room you’re working on to ensure you won’t have to clean up double the dust mess from higher up places. Work around the room and keep an eye on which parts and items sit up higher before going right to work in a section that might be lower. This will save you so much time and energy!

Brush Pets Often

Want to avoid continually having to dust around your home? One recommendation is that you make it a point to brush your pet’s fur at least once a day. This will help reduce shedding, and when too much animal hair hides around your home, it can make it easier for debris to linger longer. Getting your pet groomed is often a great way to keep the house spotless, while also keeping your furry friend smelling great!

Use The Right Tools

While a feather duster or paper towel with spray could do the trick, it’s not often completely done right. Instead, try to use a soft cloth dampened with water or a microfiber duster and anything else designed to pick up dust fast and efficiently. Plan so that you can make sure you have all the materials you need before cleaning day!

Professional Cleaning

There is some cleaning you can’t do thoroughly by yourself. And when dust and debris build up in your air ducts, attic, and crawl spaces, you’ll need to call for some backup. Luckily for you, we’ve got you covered. Some of your family members might even be more sensitive to dust contaminants than others. Allergy and asthma sufferers and young children, and the elderly, tend to be more susceptible to the types of low indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help address. Breathe easier and live cleaner.

Cleaning and taking care of your home can be challenging to deal with, and it is often best to bring in some professionals to help. Contact GreenPro Cleaning and Restoration to take care of your ducts, attics, crawl spaces, and water damage needs.

Can Your Ducts Freeze?


We’re not even halfway through the winter season yet, so we’re bound to end up experiencing some dramatic temperature drops. When it does get freezing outside, there could be a negative impact on your HVAC ducts moving forward. Ensure you’re aware of all the issues that can arise and how best to prevent them and fix them in the future.

So, Can Your Ducts Freeze?

Short answer, yes! If your ducts show signs of freezing over, this could be a red sign for your system you can’t ignore. You’ll notice clear signs of an issue like this, such as low airflow and slow cooling or heating. These problems can double in wintertime, as temperature drops can fall below freezing some nights. Ice will build-up on the refrigerant lines or coils, the kind your defrost cycle might not be able to combat. Most of the time, you’ll see this problem happening in systems that have not been cleaned out in a very long time. So, what should you do if this occurs?

Locate The Source, Fix The Issue

If you can find where the issue is starting from, you might figure out what is happening with your system that is preventing it from fighting the ice.

  • Check Your Heat Pump: because thawing that section down is relatively simple. Just use a hose on your outdoor system to defrost. Also, make sure the pump hasn’t settled too close to the ground, where it can pick up extra moisture and cause ice to form.
  • Run Defrost Cycle: this system was created to warm up your high-pressure refrigerant since outdoor units are often prone to freezing. If you notice this method does not work, there could be an internal problem involving debris or dust in your HVAC that needs attention right away.
  • Get A Professional Cleaning: whether you’re unsure where to start, or if you’re having issues other than freezing, calling a professional to come to clean out your air ducts can help you the most in the long run. They can help locate the start of the problem and take care of it for you right on the spot. 

Getting your home and business ready for winter weather and protecting your heating can be time-consuming tasks, and it is often best to bring in some professionals to help. Contact GreenPro Cleaning and Restoration to take care of your ducts, attics, crawl spaces, and water damage.
