The Importance Of Keeping Daycare Carpets Clean

If you have kids, you know how important it is to keep them safe and healthy. You try to make sure everything in you home is as clean as possible. But what happens when they are dropped off at daycare?

With so many kids coming in and out of your center every day, it is vital that you keep your rooms’ carpeting clean and sanitary. Babies lie on it. Toddlers crawl on it. Preschoolers do just about everything on it. It’s the perfect place for germs and bacteria to hide. And ultimately impact everyone’s health, yours included.

Illness

Carpeting is a bonus when kids are playing. It can soften the falls and support new walkers as they practice their steps. But carpeting is also a sponge for everything that transfers illness from one person to the next. A toddler sneezes. A child plays with a toy in the same area and picks up the germs already starting to spread. When it comes to picking up germs, vacuuming is not enough. While vacuuming helps and should be done every day, its only a stepping stone to good health.

Allergies and Asthma

In addition to germs and bacteria, carpeting is breeding grounds for dust mites, dirt and other spores that prefer to live deep within the fibers. The more they accumulate, the more readily available they are to impact kids that already have allergies or asthma.

Health

Regular carpet cleaning is now something to think about, right? To keep your clients, your own family and your health in top shape, carpet cleaning may have moved to the top of your list of things to do. Now consider what type of carpet cleaning you will use.

With the advances in carpet cleaning methods also came an advancement in use of chemicals. When people asked for things to be cleaner, and to remove spots easier, people went into the lab and developed chemicals that could do the job at any cost.

But if you can’t even pronounce the words, do you really want babies lying on it, or toddlers to be placing things in their mouths that were exposed to it?

When it comes to children, safety matters. And that means in your carpet cleaning too. Natural carpet cleaning is the only safe method that will get your carpets clean, and preserve the health of you, your family and your clients too.
