A New Jersey company is offering residents of a residential area in Manhattan a cleaner they can use instead of a scrubber and a spray bottle.
The company, Shark Steam Cleaners, was founded by Mark Deacon, a New York City resident and avid fisherman.
According to Shark Steam, its cleaners are “100% stainless steel” and “delivers a clean, bright, and pleasant experience.”
The company offers a variety of cleaning services ranging from dishwashing to shampooing.
Its website describes its cleaners as a “smooth, natural scrubbing and sanitizing solution that cleans, sanitizes, and disinfects your home with the most gentle and cleanest ingredients.”
Deacon told Mashable that he has been cleaning the city for the past six years, and he uses Shark Steam for all of his daily chores.
“I can’t get enough of cleaning,” he said.
“There are so many people who don’t have a home and don’t know what they want.
We provide the tools, and it’s just a matter of time.”
Deacons cleaners are available in both stainless steel and titanium.
He said he hopes to eventually expand to other types of products, such as plastic, but he says his business is about getting the right cleaners at the right price.
“If you want to save money, get a better product, you can,” he told Mashables.
“But I also know that it’s really important for people to know that we offer a wide variety of products that can be used for every household.”
Deans goal is to help residents of the city avoid mold, and Shark Steam has been working to increase its cleanliness.
In the first six months of 2017, it had removed 1,000 tons of mold, according to Shark Valve.
“It’s a lot of work,” Deacon said.
He has also spent a lot time thinking about the residents of his community.
“We want to be there for them and give them a chance to take their cleaning to the next level,” he added.
“That’s what we’re all about.”
Shark Steam recently opened its first store in Manhattan.
It is also offering to install “shower curtains” in residential areas.
Deacon says the company plans to expand its cleaning services to other neighborhoods in the city.
“As we expand, we’ll continue to have people who want to come into our shop to try these products,” he continued.
“And they can find them anywhere.”
The city of New York has been one of the most active locations for mold outbreaks.
In 2018, the city recorded a record amount of 8,664 mold cases, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
According a Mashable investigation, mold can cause problems with eyesight, breathing, and respiratory systems, and can also affect a person’s immune system.
The city has since been forced to institute sweeping and prevention measures to combat the outbreak.
According the New York State Department of Health, there were more than 8,000 cases of mold in New York by December of 2017.
