Carpet Cleaning - How To Prepare For A New Born Baby

When Should I Have My Carpets Cleaned to Prepare for my Newborn?

Nothing is more thrilling than bringing a new baby home and introducing them to the world. Visits by the child’s grandparents, your neighbors and friends making go-goo eyes over your new bundle of joy, and the hopes and dreams you have for your child.

With all this excitement, you’ll want your home clean and in tip-top shape.

If you’re preparing for a newborn, let Tru-Clean Surface Care help. We’ll take the stress of preparation off your shoulders and give your carpets, upholstery, mattresses, and tile a deep, healthy clean.

Start Before Your Child Is Born

Cleaning your carpets and other textiles before your baby arrives is a great way to prepare for your little bundle of joy. Even though your baby won’t be crawling for months, cleaning the carpets, upholstery, and tile before they come home from the hospital is best. Not only does a thorough cleaning remove harmful dust and allergens, but it also improves air quality in your home, helping your little one to breathe well from day one.

Fact:  Did you know that the average 6-room home accumulates over 40 pounds of soil, dust mites, pollen, and other contaminates annually?

We recommend having your home cleaned as close to your delivery date as possible to have fresh, clean floors and allergen-free upholstery from the moment your baby arrives. Our thoroughly exhaustive, allergen, baby, and pet-safe cleaning solutions, are effective at sanitizing and cleaning while helping to eliminate allergens that can harm infants.

Safer Products, Safer Baby

Tru-Clean Surface Care uses safe cleaning products approved by the International Carpet & Rug Institute. These cleaning solutions have been rigorously tested as safe for infants and allergen-free. We use a high steam-low moisture process when cleaning carpet, tile, upholstery, and mattresses and follow the cleaning with a specialty allergen-free rinse and fan designed to assist in drying the cleaned textile as quickly as possible. This process allows us to leave no lingering moisture that can form mold or mildew.

Once your baby comes home, we recommend having your carpets cleaned every six months. This places your next cleaning right around the time your little one starts to crawl, which puts them in contact with your carpet and flooring on a nearly constant basis.
