How Bedbug Infestations Occur

  1. Bedbugs are gifted hitchhikers.
    It only takes one fertile female or a few tiny eggs to adhere to a suitcase, a backpack, or the bags and cases we all carry around with us. It can be local or international travel. Bedbugs can come from a hotel, even one of the nicer ones, a house where one of the kids spent the night, or visitors to your home who picked up a bedbug hitchhiker without realizing it.

  2. Buying/accepting a used mattress, bedding, or furniture.
    Even a well-meaning friend or acquaintance may not be able to say, with absolute certainty, that a secondhand item is bedbug-free.

  3. They frequently lay eggs in cracks and crevices.
    They have, however, been found all over houses. They drop off of infested furniture that is moved, when the bedding is being changed and carried through the house, and so on. If an egg or insect gets on your children's stuffed toys, pillows, or blankets, and they move to other rooms because they are being bitten, they may be inadvertently spreading the bedbugs. They may even take them to grandma's house when they visit.

  4. Bedbugs thrive where people are in close quarters.
    Places with lots of stuff (clutter) and a constant stream of people coming and going are more prone to infestation. Apartments, offices and condos are at higher risk because of the fluctuation of population, movement of furnishings, and the fact that bedbugs can travel in the void between the walls. Whole apartment buildings have been infested when someone takes an infested mattress down to the dumpster, dropping eggs or insects all along the way.

  5. The people or places that have bedbugs cannot be stereotyped.
    Bedbugs do not discriminate; they can be found in any neighborhood, and a place does not have to be dirty to be at risk for bedbug infestation. They can be found virtually anywhere: in private homes, nursing homes, hotels, many apartments, and condos. Reports across the country indicate that no place is beyond their reach, including office buildings, schools, and firehouses. Bedbugs will follow their food, humans, wherever they may go.

Window Cleaning For 2016!

 Guardian Window Cleaning!

Window cleaning used to be something of a craft in which specialists on ladders would work hard to produce a streak-free finish using a detergent solution and a sgueegee. But factors such as speed, efficiency, safety and sustainability have become increasingly important and perhaps even more valued than craftsmanship.

Guardian is one of the region’s largest, fully insured and licensed window washing companies servicing the Northeast since 1918; we carry excess liability umbrella insurance and statutory workman’s compensation insurance. All of our window washers are state certified professionals expertly trained to provide the safest and most cost-effective method of window cleaning to ensure the highest quality of service possible for all commercial and residential customers.

Snow Removal In New York City

 Snow Removal

While snow is falling, complaints are not accepted for snowy or icy sidewalks. After the snow stops falling, if you are a property owner, you must clear snow and ice on your sidewalk to create a path for pedestrians. You must also remove snow and ice from sidewalks next to bus stops and hydrants.

Snow Removal
 If snowfall ends:
  • Between 7 AM and 5 PM, sidewalks must be cleared within 4 hours.
  • Between 5 PM and 9 PM, sidewalks must be cleared within 14 hours.
  • Between 9 PM and 7 AM, sidewalks must be cleared by 11 AM.
You may receive a summons for failing to clear the sidewalks within these timeframes.
You can make a complaint about snow or ice on sidewalks in front of private property after property owners have had an appropriate amount of time to clear their sidewalks.
You can also make a complaint at any time about snow or ice on sidewalks in front of public property, such as bus stop shelters, park paths, or schools.

Matthew Bressler, Vice President, Lighting & Window Washing declares "the days of humming bulbs came to an end with the creation of LEDs, so there's no need to lose sanity listening to the thrum, tick, or ping of other light bulbs."
