Start Early

Having your carpets cleaned 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, it’s best to clean the carpets before they even come home from the hospital — not only does a thorough cleaning remove harmful dust and allergens from the carpet fibers, but it also improves air quality in your home, helping your little one to breathe well from day one.

We recommend having your carpets cleaned as close to your delivery date as possible so as to have fresh, clean floors right from the start of your baby’s time at home. With Dr. Chem-Dry, cleaning your carpets can be hassle-free even late in your pregnancy — we move and replace all the heavy items for you, and carpets dry in a matter of hours.

Use a Low-Water Process

When water and moisture is left in the fibers of your carpet, it can promote the growth of mold, mildew and other allergens that defeat the purpose of cleaning your carpets in the first place. Dr. Chem-Dry’s carbonated cleaning method requires one-tenth the water compared to traditional shampoo or steam cleanings, giving your carpet a drier, deeper, and healthier clean.

Safer Products, Safer Baby

To top it off, the ingredients in our specially formulated cleaner, ‘The Natural’, are on the Food and Drug Administration’s G.R.A.S.(Generally Recognized as Safe) list, which means that it is safe to use around children and pets. Our solutions are green-certified and environmentally friendly, meaning that your baby’s delicate skin will not be exposed to the harsh detergents that are often included in other cleaning products.

Once your baby arrives, we recommend having your carpets cleaned every 6 months. This places the next cleaning right around the time your little one is starting to crawl, which puts them in contact with your carpet and flooring on a nearly constant basis. If you cannot have your carpets cleaned this frequently, they should still be cleaned at least once a year.
