3 Reasons Steam Cleaning Is Ideal When You Have Babies in the House

3 ReasonsGot babies in the house? Then it’s more important than ever to keep your carpets clean. Those little tykes are still learning to walk, so crawling is still their preferred mode of travel, and that means they’ll be crawling all over the carpet.

Their little hands will be in almost constantly in contact with the carpet, and their mouths will be very low to the ground, meaning that anything from dust to allergens can be more easily inhaled. And let’s face it, babies aren’t too discerning about putting their hands in their mouths.

In a nutshell, even a mildly unclean carpet is bad for your baby’s health. Regular vacuuming should certainly be part of your cleaning regime, but you’ll sometimes need a deeper clean than vacuum cleaners can provide. Here’s why new parents should consider regular steam cleaning.

1. Provides a Superior Clean

Firstly, steam cleaners are incredibly effective. When you vacuum, you remove the top layer of dirt and dust, plus any pests, such as dust mites, that are unwise enough to lurk near the surface. Carpet shampoos are problematic because you only scrub at the surface instead of getting right to the base.

Steam cleaners go down deeper. They blast a jet of extremely hot water down into the carpet before sucking it back up again. Water penetrates right to the base of the carpet, far further than your vacuum could reach.

Temperatures run high enough to break the bonds between dirt or allergens and the carpet fibres — they’re also high enough to kill germs, bacteria and pests. If your babies are going to be crawling around on the floor, it makes sense to get the floor as clean as possible.

2. Dries Quick to Avoid Moisture Problems

Let’s say you decide to shampoo your carpet instead of having it professionally steam cleaned — it can be tough to remove all the moisture once you’re done. Because you rub down hard with a shampoo, moisture sticks around, and it’s tough to remove since it tends to leave the area a little sticky.

Unfortunately, any moisture can lead to mould growth, so cleaning your carpet could actually make it more hazardous to your child. Experts predict that one-third of children are allergic to mould and that babies exposed to some household moulds suffer an increased risk of developing multiple allergies later in life.

A professional steam cleaning company can use a low-water method to leave your carpet almost completely dry after cleaning has finished. Remember, the vast majority of the moisture is vacuumed back up. Your room should be dry in no time so issues with mould aren’t something to worry about.

3. Uses No Hazardous Chemicals

Here’s a common mistake: parents want the best clean possible, so they go for the strongest type of cleaner available. The issue is that, while the strongest products will be excellent at removing stains, they almost always contain plenty of chemicals to help them get the job done. Some of those chemicals can be toxic, and traces may be left when the cleaning process is over.

Even spot cleaners can be dangerous since they typically contain ingredients such as formaldehyde and disinfectant. Residue isn’t such a problem for adults, but babies will be right up close. Their skin will encounter the carpet more frequently, and they’ll be more likely to breathe in chemicals. Even if the chemicals aren’t harmful, they could cause an allergic reaction.

Once again, steam cleaning stands out as the safer choice. It provides a deep clean without using any chemicals whatsoever. Just good old H2O is all a steam cleaner needs, and what could be less hazardous than that? For steam cleaning, call Black & White Home Services.
