CLEAN THE CARPETING IN YOUR CHILD’S ROOM THOROUGHLY AND OFTEN

IMG_6596

The U.S. Building Council’s “Green Home Guide” isn’t particularly complimentary when it comes to carpeting in babies’ rooms. Children are more susceptible to environmental hazards than adults, the authors explain, and carpeting can contain dirt and pollutants. Why the special concern when it comes to the young ‘uns and carpeting? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children:

  • Children breathe more air, drink more water, and eat more food in proportion to body weight than adults do
  • Children’s skin is more permeable to certain toxins
  • Children spend a lot of time on the floor as they learn to crawl and play
  • Children often explore new objects by putting them in their mouths

Here at Indy Carpet Cleaning, we were very interested to learn that the “Green Home Guide” authors recommend against removing carpet from a child’s room if it’s already in place. “It’s better to clean it thoroughly and often than to pull it up,” is their advice. Removal, they explain, may kick up the very particles you’re trying to avoid.

 

As longtime Indianapolis professional carpet cleaners, we couldn’t agree more with that thorough-and-often guideline, especially when it comes to children’s rooms. In fact, every product we use is certified safe for: kids and pets. Our two-step process includes using a green cleaning solution, then following with a pH-balanced rinse. Using truck-mounted equipment, we’ve found, makes for more powerful extraction and quicker drying, so the children can get back to all that exploring and playing on the floor. If we find there are pets sharing the along with kids, our home cleaning services include using odor neutralizers to break down and convert pet contamination into odorless, inert substances.

 

Of course, both kids and pets often climb on the furniture as well as around the floor. That’s why our upholstery cleaning technician will carefully select the right steam pressure and non-toxic, child-safe detergents to make your furniture look like new. Rest assured – we don’t just spray a scent on top of the furniture; we get down to the source of the odor and remove it.

 

At Indy Carpet Cleaning, we’re all about cleaner, healthier homes. As the old saying goes, you have to crawl before you can walk, and that means carpeting in children’s room had be cleaned thoroughly, often – and safely!

How Often Should You Get Your Carpets Cleaned?

Frequently used carpets should be professionally cleaned by a qualified technician at least annually – perhaps a little longer interval for infrequently-used carpets, and even sooner for carpets in homes of respiratory-sensitive or allergic persons, or in homes with indoor pets.

home-carpets-e1349877405541The following is information from the IICRC S100 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Cleaning. According to the guide, factors to consider carpet cleaning frequency include: traffic, soil level, vacuuming schedules, spot cleaning schedules, professional interim cleaning schedules, and restorative cleaning schedules.

Remember: It’s important to follow the carpet manufacturer’s recommended cleaning schedule to maintain your warranty.

Keeping Your Carpet Clean During the Muddy Winter is Tough – But Salt is Even Tougher on Your Carpets

Clean carpet is something most homeowners strive for while each new season presents new challenges and obstacles to maintain that clean carpet. A good rule of thumb is that wherever there is snow and ice there is also salt. The salt mixtures we use for snow contains calcium chloride and in some instances also sand. While the salt and chemicals work wonders for keeping ice off of our walkways and driveways, they wreak havoc on our carpet.

When left unattended, salt and calcium chloride not only stain the carpet but also lead to discoloration and damage the carpet fibers. The salt penetrates the carpet fibers, typically nylon or wool, and causes them to breakdown much faster than what is considered normal wear and tear. The longer the salt stays in the carpet, the more salt damage occurs. Salt and carpet simply do not mix.

Keep your carpet clean by using a simple solution of white vinegar and warm water. Before you begin to clean the salt stains, make sure you thoroughly vacuum the area to remove any freestanding particles of dirt and salt. If not removed, the salt and dirt will simply dissolve when exposed to the water mixture leaving you a bigger stain to clean up than when you started.

Combine equal portions of white vinegar and warm water in a bucket. Keeping the carpet as dry as possible is key, so avoid using a spray bottle to apply the mixture. Dip a sponge in the water and vinegar mixture so it is wet rather than soaked, and scrub the stain. Let the homemade cleaning solution sit on the salt stain for approximately 15 minutes then use a clean towel to press against the carpet and remove any excess water.

Repeat the sponge and towel technique again to remove the remaining stain if necessary. After the carpet stain is successfully removed, simply press a dry, clean towel on the area to continue removing the moisture. Getting as much moisture out as possible is important to avoid additional carpet stains.
