As a mother of a busy toddler,another baby on the way and an owner of a big furry husky dog I know the struggle to keep the house clean. At the end of every busy day I praise myself for managing to get through the day in one piece. One thing I can’t stand is my rug, it gets covered in dog hair and then I see my one year old picking up a toy and putting it in his mouth. So here I give you some tips on how I keep my house clean safe and protected and I hope it helps you!
- Groom dog 15 million times a day! (joking)
- Hoover my rug’s and carpets
- keep surfaces free from dust
- Make sure toys are clean and germ free
- Wash hands regularly especially after walks with dog and playing outside with kids
- Baby room is always cleaned
Before I started work with The Carpet Cleaning Company I thought cleaning my carpets with a hoover and using carpet cleaning products from super markets was enough, however I soon realised that this was not the case. Unfortunately, some carpet cleaning chemicals pose serious health hazards. You can avoid these health risks by taking time to research the ingredients in all the carpet cleaning products you use in your home, especially your baby’s bedroom. Work with carpet cleaners who specialize in a low-water cleaning process and use non-toxic, child-safe carpet cleaning products.
Minimize the dirtiness of your carpets with basic preventive and care measures. Place doormats outside entrances to your home so everyone can wipe their feet instead of tracking dirt, debris and other undesirable stuff onto your carpets.
IN A NUT SHELL……….If your home remedies just aren’t getting your carpet clean, you may need additional help. Many carpet cleaning companies offer baby-safe services. Inquire with local providers and make sure you get the specifics on what makes them so baby-safe. Also, environmentally-friendly cleaning products are available that are often safe for use in homes with little ones. Review labels carefully and use some common sense. For example, terms like “hazardous to your health,” “poison,” “danger,” “irritating,” “corrosive,” “highly flammable,” “highly combustible” and “strong sanitiser” are obvious red flags that a particular product isn’t baby-safe.
