Cleaning advice from the professionals.

When a new baby enters your home, you want your home to be as clean as possible. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry. Like most new parents though, you probably have some concerns about the chemicals that are being used on your carpet. Here are some things that you should know about cleaning your carpet with a newborn.

1. Should your baby be in the house?

Probably not. Carpet cleaning is not harmful when done correctly, but the cleaning process tends to kick up dust and dander. When your carpet is vacuumed, some dust and dander will enter the air. When it is steam cleaned, there will be an elevated humidity level in the home. For safety’s sake, you might as well have the baby away from home while your carpet is being cleaned.

2. Are cleaning chemicals safe for babies?

If your carpet cleaner uses natural chemicals, in most cases they will be safe. You should ask your cleaner to not use solvents or any other strong chemicals in your home if you have a newborn. Also, ask them to use a natural or water only rinse.

3. Should you be worried about mold?

If your carpet is cleaned properly, there is absolutely no need to worry about mold. This is why it is so important to use a truck mounted steam cleaning system and an owner operated company. The combination of the proper equipment and the skill of an owner operator will allow your carpets to be dry in just a few hours.

4. Are dry cleaning systems safer?

No, the safest and most effective method of carpet cleaning is truck mounted carpet cleaning. Many dry cleaning methods depend on strong chemicals and solvents. Because they use less water, they must depend on stronger chemicals.
