Giving Back: Stray Rescue of St. Louis

Giving Back: Stray Rescue of St. Louis

Duncan Pros Gives Back! 

We are so excited about our new partnership with the Stray Rescue of St. Louis.  This incredible organization works hard everyday to rescue dogs and cats that have been abused and neglected. They give them the proper care they need and a second chance at life by finding them loving homes.  

Patrick Duncan, owner of Duncan Pros, wanted to find away to give back to the community. When we were looking for an organization to team up with, Stray Rescue stood out because we love their mission and what they stand for but most importantly they are not just words, they are actions.  

We set up a time to meet their team and tour the facility to see if they were a good match.  We were fearful that we were going to be in tears and depressed after the visit, like when you see those commercials with sad music and sad animals. However, Stray Rescue impressed us even more. When we arrived we saw a team of workers and volunteers who are truly passionate about their mission. The facility is so clean, their team works hard to make sure each dog and cat has a clean cage, bed, food, and that the animals are receiving the proper care. They are so compassionate and loving to all of these animals in need.  Which was a direct reflection of the dogs that are in their care. They were happy!  These are dogs that have come from the absolute worse living conditions, of neglect and abuse. They now have hope of finding they’re forever home, and are experiencing love— many for the first time. 

What was even more heart warming was actually meeting some of the dogs that we read about. For example, Dutch Boy was a victim of having chemicals poured on him, resulting in  burning his skin.  When they first rescued him he was so sad, and he cried all night because of the pain he was in.  Meeting him he was a totally different dog, so happy, loving, excited, and trusting. (Check out the pictures below of Dutch Boy’s progress). Being able to see the change in these animals lives reassured us that we have chosen the right organization to partner with.  They are a perfect example of what an animal shelter should be, filled with love, hope, and compassion. 

Follow us on our journey!  Here is what we have going on:

We are so excited to sponsor an intake apartment at Stray Rescue.  This means we are funding the care and basic medical expenses for the dogs that stay in our apartment to help them get ready for adoption!  We will post about the dogs we have helped and their story, and who knows maybe even help one find they’re forever home.

We also wanted to give back to Stray Rescue for all of the hard work they do for the St. Louis community.  Our team is cleaning the exterior and windows of the facility monthly, so that they can focus on their mission and enjoy a clean building. Check out some of the footage from our day cleaning below! 

And if you are looking for the purrfect companion check out Stray Rescue and find your new best friend.  There are so many loving, sweet, adorable dogs and cats that are looking for a new start, a family to love, and a place to call home!  Visit Stray Rescue at strayrescue.org

To clean this retaining wall we applied a pretreat formula to the brick and let it dwell.  We then used medium pressure to remove all debris.

Cleaning for the Stray Rescue was our technician's favorite job! They loved meeting Dutch Boy and getting some doggy kisses.

Are your gutters full? Your guide to gutter maintenance.

Are your gutters full? Your guide to gutter maintenance.

Are your gutters full? It has been a wet summer, with that we have had many calls about overflowing gutters, clogged downspouts, and worse water in the basement.  It is important to have your gutters cleaned at least once a year, and twice if you have a lot of trees. By keeping up with your gutter maintenance you will end up saving thousands of dollars in repairs.  

What can be in your gutters?  We have found:

  • moss growing
  • helicopter plant seeds
  • weeds
  • birds’ nests
  • balls
  • hornet nests
  • sludge, dirt, and debris
  • and of course leaves to name a few.

But I have gutter guards! Gutter guards work great at keeping the big stuff out of your gutters. However, even with gutter guards you still need to maintain your gutters. Sludge still gets into your gutters and needs to be cleaned out.  Leaves can still cover the tops of your gutter guards, making them not function properly.  

Tips to better gutters: 

  1. Make sure your gutters are all attached properly. Many times the downspouts will detach.  
  2. Next time it rains, pay attention and make sure that your gutters are not overflowing, or dripping anywhere. Make sure the water is flowing out properly, and that you have no leaks in your home.
  3. Install gutter guards to help keep your gutters cleaned out.  Just remember you still need to have them cleaned.  
  4. Whether you hire someone, or do it yourself always make sure to clean your gutters annually.  If you have a lot of trees, you may need to do this twice a year.

Soft Wash Process

Soft Wash Process

When we wash houses we use the soft wash method.  Soft washing is using low pressure and a special formulated solution to safely remove mildew, mold, algae, bacteria, and other organic stains from the exterior of your home.  Our solution is Eco-friendly and biodegradable. It is completely safe to for your home, and will not harm your plants or pets.    

We apply the solution first, and let it absorb, so that it breaks down the dirt and mildew.  Once it has had time to soak, we rinse it taking all of the dirt, and fungicides with it.  Leaving your home exceptionally clean! 

The soft wash method is preferred for the exterior of the home and roof because it safely removes dirt and fungicides without chipping paint, removing protective coats, or damaging siding and/or shingles.  Click here for more information about our soft wash service. 

Check out this quick demonstration of our soft wash process.
