Keep the Carpet Clean for BabyApril 28th, 2014 | by Angelo | 0
Having a baby in the house is an incredibly exciting and sometimes overwhelming experience. Babies bring so much fun and joy, but as we all know, they also bring messes. Don’t be shocked by surprise damage to your carpets and furniture. But, there are some steps you can take to help maintain your home, keeping your carpets and furniture in good condition so they last.
How to Quickly Clean Up Carpet Disasters
First, always feed your baby in an area with a hard surface floor, usually a kitchen or dining area. While this might seem obvious, when you are exhausted from being up with your baby all night, you might be tempted to plop down on the couch for a quick feeding. But remember, it’s tough to get carrot puree out of couches and carpets.
Babies often get upset stomachs and baby spit-up is never fun to clean up, but we know it comes with the territory. It is really important to clean up these messes right away because spit-up can make furniture and carpets smell permanently if it sits in the fabric too long. The best thing to do in this situation is to wipe up any liquid with a clean towel. Then, use a special fabric or carpet cleaner to spray the area. This will not only help to prevent staining, but will also eliminate odour.
When to Call in a Professional
To keep carpets clean and safe of allergens and bacteria, it is important to have regular professional cleanings. Professional cleanings are especially important when the baby begins crawling and is spending a lot of time on the ground. Speak with a professional about a cleaning process that is safe for babies, as there are different treatments that can be used depending on household needs.
