Babies will crawl on the floor and put toys in their mouths that have been on the carpet. Some carpet cleaning solutions pose health hazards. For instance, moisture can cause mold. Avoid the health risks by having carpets cleaned by specialists who know the correct products and cleaning techniques to produce child-safe carpet.
The carpet the baby will crawl on can absorb dust mites, allergens, and other tracked-in and airborne compounds. If carpet is already installed, pulling it up also has some health risks involved. The germ particles you attempt to avoid making contact with your baby, can be placed into the air by removing the carpet. To avoid the drastic measure of pulling up a carpet that was installed, place area rugs made from natural, organic fibers that are vegetable dyed over existing carpet.
Toxic cleaners can also have an impact on the environment of your home. Those include cleaners that are dumped, poured, rinsed, washed, or sprayed. Toxins disperse into the water and air and recycle back to us. Using certified, green products is advised. Green Seal and other organizations give approval to green products and indicate such on product labels.
Carpets are among the most used items in the home. Babies sit on them and pets lounge on them. It is important to avoid toxic chemicals that can become embedded in carpet fibers. Chemicals can cause respiratory problems, allergies, and rashes. Choose products that do not cause harm you, your babies, or a pet.
Organically cleaned carpets have no noxious fumes. The most beneficial aspect of organic carpet cleaning is the non-pollution to the environment. Potential mold growth is reduced or eliminated also.
