Bringing home a new baby is one of the most precious and memorable moments of life. You want your home to be 100% perfect and safe for when the baby arrives. You want it to be clean too and that includes your carpet. But what about carpet cleaning chemicals? Is carpet cleaning safe for babies?

Overall, most carpet cleaners use methods and solutions that are safe for babies but some methods are safer than others and when it comes to your newborn baby you don’t want to take chances.

Most steam carpet cleaning companies do not use chemicals to clean carpet but they use a lot of water and will leave behind wet carpet. Wet carpet can breed mold and other bacteria you won’t want to subject your baby to.

Some popular steam cleaners also use an acid rinse to attempt to wash out all of the soap and dirt from the carpet. The acid rinse is not often advertised as part of their service and you want to be aware of it for the safety of your baby.

You might be familiar with dry carpet cleaning? Dry carpet cleaning is 100% chemical-based and uses solvents and compounds to dissolve dirt. You avoid the potential for mold and bacteria growth but you are introducing several chemicals into your home before baby arrives.
