These days, more and more consideration is being given about what chemicals we are using in our home. We are striving to become a less chemical dependent country and want to use natural cleaners when at all possible. This is especially true if you have children. So what do you need to look for when looking for baby safe carpet cleaning? Here are a few things to consider.
Chemicals Being Used
If you want a carpet cleaning that is truly baby safe, you need to find a cleaner who uses chemicals that are completely natural. Stay away from cleaners that use petrochemicals and solvents of any kind. The cleaner that they use should be safe enough to eat. Your baby, afterall, will undoubtedly be dropping things on the carpet and putting them back into his or her mouth. You want to be sure that they are not digesting chemicals along the way. So ask your cleaner what they will be using on your carpet. You should also consider asking them for an MSDS sheet. The Material Safety Data Sheet will list all of the chemicals in the cleaning product.
Cleaning System Being Used
This is another important factor in a cleaning process. How will they be cleaning your carpet and where is the dirt going. With dry cleaning methods, there is no real extraction which means that there is not complete soil removal. You want to use steam cleaning and more specifically, truck mounted steam cleaning. With truck mounted steam cleaning, all of the equipment is left outside and the technician will only bring in a few hoses. This means that there is no machine spewing humid and foil smelling air in your home. Truck mounted machines also produce higher heat, pressure and vacuum levels. This means that you will have a cleaner carpet that dries quickly.
Who Will Be Doing The Work
This is one last consideration that you need to make if you want a baby safe carpet cleaning. Who will be doing the work? You want someone that truly cares about the health of you and your family. In most cases, this means that you need an owner operated cleaning company. No employee or subcontractor is going to care as much about you and your families safety.
