Children, Carpets, and How to Keep Them Clean

If you have children or once were a kid, you know how messy kids can be. Unfortunately, when you become an adult, having carpets and keeping them clean (for a variety of reasons, aside from your own sanity) is essential. If you have both children and beautiful carpets, our team has put together this article to detail three great preventative measures to keep your carpets and rugs clean, aside from regular carpet cleaning service calls.

Tip No. 1: Use anti-spill cups and bowls.

Although this may seem obvious, small children tend to spill snacks and drinks very easily. If you have a life (and your sanity), the odds are that you aren’t going to be watching them like a hawk at every second.

Don’t let the moment you turn away and hand them a cup of juice leave an ugly stain in your carpet. Instead, invest in anti-spill cups and bowls, which rotate on an axis and keep the contents upright (and most importantly, off your carpets).

Tip No. 2: Keep snacks and drinks in the kitchen.

Another way to prevent harsh stains and food spills on your carpet is to limit your child to the kitchen while eating (and make sure they’re clear of any rugs or carpets, quite obviously).

While this may be tedious at times, remember that it will save you hundreds (and potentially even thousands) of dollars and repetitive calls to your carpet cleaner. As much as our team loves to service your carpets, we care about you as people too. Keep your carpets clean yearly, and use these tips not to have to clean them every week.

Tip No. 3: Keep arts and crafts in the garage or outside.

Another very common occurrence our team notices with children is the failure to keep art projects in a controlled environment, and dirty carpets and rugs as a result. The best practice when it comes to handling children and colored substances is to keep them away from anything that may stain.

If a spill occurs in the garage or outside, it can easily be washed away (and also in your carpets, but only if you contact our team, and typically not by hand).
