• Is It Safe To Get My Carpet Cleaned With Small Children Around?

    What you need to know if you want upholstery and carpet cleaning but are worried about the safety factor.

    The truth about upholstery and carpet cleaning is that it's one of life's necessities if you have upholstered furniture and carpet in your home. But is it safe? This is a big concern, especially for parents of small children. With children playing on the floor, crawling on the floor, and basically spending considerable time on the floor, do you need to be concerned about getting your carpets cleaned?

    The Chemicals Are the Concern

    Most professional carpet cleaning products contain some type of cleaning agent or chemical that aids the cleaning process. Most of these products are considered safe to pets and people, including small children. There has been some concern around the carpet and upholstery "protectors" but simple cleaning with safe and non-toxic products does not produce a concentrated enough chemical cleaning agent to be harmful.

    What's the Best Way to Ensure Safety?

    No matter what type of cleaning product is being used, it's always a good idea to have extra ventilation when you're having your carpets cleaned. This allows for any dirt and bacteria that gets disturbed during the cleaning and then becomes airborne to be vented up and out of the room. Additionally, it will help with the drying time. When the carpets are completely dry, there should not be any cleaning residue left on your carpet so your children won't have contact with any products, just clean carpet.

    How Important Is Professional Cleaning?

    Professionally cleaned carpets are very important if your goal is a clean and safe household. The amount of dirt, bacteria, and mold that can live in the fibers of your carpet is astonishing. Getting it cleaned regularly will reduce the dangers present in these pollutants in your carpet and make your house safer for babies, kids, and pets.

    If it's been a while since you've had your carpets cleaned, it's time to take the plunge and get them looking, feeling, and smelling like new. For the best and safest upholstery and carpet cleaning, make an appointment with Whitehall Carpet Cleaners today by calling 803-732-3200.
