Springtime Organic Gardening Tips

ORGANIC GARDEN PHOTO

You trust Harmony Clean, Inc. to make the inside of your home sparkle with healthy, earth-friendly cleaning products, but are you treating your garden with the same care?

Organic, chemical-free gardening is more sustainable for your family’s health, wildlife, the soil, and the water supply, but oftentimes people choose to “quick-fix” their gardens with synthetic fertilizers and harsh pesticides. By adopting organic practices in your garden, you can still enjoy a thriving garden without sacrificing the health of your family or the environment overall.

Our friends at Go Green Lawn Services, an organic lawn care company  in West Chester, have put together a guide to help you improve the sustainability of your garden this spring.

Recycle your eggshells

Plants like to be sunny-side up, too! Instead of tossing eggshells after your next breakfast, rinse them, dry them, and save them for your garden. The extra calcium will help your tomatoes and peppers grow. Additionally, crushed shells can be used to deter pests like snails and slugs.

Get salty

Most commercial fertilizers use magnesium to help plant roots take up important nutrients. Sprinkling epsom salts into your soil can improve seed germination and nutrient absorption naturally, eliminating the need for harsh chemicals. For curling leaves – a sign of nutrient deficiency – sprinkling epsom salts around the base of the plant can nurse it back to health quickly.

Mix up some homemade herbicide

If weeds are taking over your garden, commercial grade herbicide is not your only answer. In a spray bottle, mix 2 cups of white vinegar, ½ cup of salt, and a little squirt of dish soap. Then spray the roots of your weeds. Be very cautious that you don’t accidentally spray your vegetables!

Plant strategically

Select plant types that are well-adapted for the soil, temperature range, and sun exposure in your yard. Also consider the wide variety of plants that naturally suppress weed growth and deter pests. With a little research and planning, you can plant garden beds that require minimal help to keep bugs and weeds at bay.
Using organic practices in your gardening and lawn care helps to preserve our community and protect the health of your family. All of Go Green’s lawn programs are certified organic and use EPA approved fertilizer, weed control, and insecticides, packing a big punch for your lawn and a gentle touch for the environment. If you’re ready to give your backyard a treat, call Go Green Lawn Services today!

Doylestown Mayor Honors National Cleaning For A Reason Week, April 18th-24th, and Harmony Clean, Inc. for Service to Women Battling Cancer

CLEANING FOR A REASON MAYOR PROCLAMATION 4-2016

For ten years, residential house cleaning businesses have been providing free house cleaning services across the nation for women undergoing cancer treatment.  Executive Director of Cleaning For A Reason (C4R), Lynn Frankenfield, recently expressed, “when you go into a home to help out and you see a wig on a stand and children patiently waiting for their lunch while mommy is sick in the bathroom, it puts your own troubles into perspective. It truly had a profound impact on me to experience firsthand the difference that a clean home makes for a woman battling cancer.”

The goals of celebrating National Cleaning For A Reason week are twofold. The first is to bring awareness to women who could use a helping hand. “The motto of the organization is to let us focus on your home, so you can focus on your health,” states Harmony Clean, Inc., co-owner, Vicki Brown. There is no income or other qualifying criteria; help is available to all women. The second is to bring awareness to other house cleaning or maid services that can join forces by partnering with C4R so more women can be reached and helped. “By receiving this proclamation from our mayor, we feel that the work of Cleaning For A Reason is truly recognized and appreciated in improving the lives of cancer patients and their families in our community,” states Brown.  Harmony Clean, Inc. has a twelve mile service area from Doylestown, Pa., but extends their zone to fifteen miles for this program.

The national nonprofit was founded by a maid service owner who wanted to give back to her community. While at an industry tradeshow she discovered that she wasn’t alone. Most of the other owner’s she spoke with were also already donating their services to those in their community in need on an informal basis. Debbie Sardone, founder of C4R, decided to organize these efforts and the results are astounding. To date C4R has recruited over 1,200 maid services to donate free house cleaning to women who are undergoing treatment for cancer. Local Doylestown participant, Harmony Clean, Inc., has been involved since 2007 and has volunteered their time to clean for 83 local women and donated over $38,000 worth of free services.

If you, or a woman you know, is battling cancer of any type and could use a helping hand, contact www.cleaningforareason.org and click on the Patients tab. Or, if you own a cleaning service and would like to help, visit the website and click Maid Services/Inquire Now to learn more.

Harmony Clean, Inc. owner quoted in national magazine article!

Have you taken your vacuum cleaner in for a tune up lately? This is just one of several tips that Harmony Clean, Inc.’s co-owner Vicki Brown shared with Real Simple magazine for their online article, “Timesaving Tips From Professional Housecleaners.” If you drop it off right before leaving for vacation they can tighten any loose belts, detail clean it, and give it a tune-up while you’re away. This will ensure it is running strongly and efficiently when you need it most and with a HEPA filter, it will actually help improve your indoor air quality each time you vacuum. When it’s time to start cleaning, Vicki also suggests turning off the ringer on your phone, shutting down your computer, and keeping the television off. If  you are distracted you lose focus and often end up either double cleaning areas already cleaned, or simply losing track of your efforts and missing areas completely.

As a locally owned Doylestown, Pa. house cleaning service, we’re honored and excited to be included as a house cleaning expert in this national online magazine. Click here to read all 9 tips.
