Keeping Your Nursery Clean and Safe For Your Children

Keeping Your Nursery Clean and Safe For Your Children

Any loving mother knows that the health and safety of her children are her #1 priority! Children (especially younger ones) spend most of their time in the nursery either sleeping or playing on the floor! That is why it’s a mother’s priority to keep the nursery squeaky clean and sanitized!

Keeping the Mattress Clean

When young, babies tend to spend most of their time sleeping. On average they sleep through three quarters of the day. That’s about 16-17 hours that your baby has spent sleeping on your mattress. Firstly make sure that your baby has the right mattress to sleep on.

Experts suggest to look for a mattress which is firm rather than soft, is not prone to sagging and fits the crib perfectly without any gaps. There are tons of options out there, but we think the best choice would be to go for a pocket spring mattress.

It provides excellent support for your baby and is super hard-wearing. It’s not the cheapest kind, but you don’t buy a mattress every day, so spending the right amount once will save you a lot of money! What can also save you money is a cleaning of the mattress every 4-6 months!

Of course you will change the sheets as often as possible, but a professional deep clean of the mattress is a must if you want your baby to be as safe and healthy as possible!

Keeping the Carpet Clean

When your baby is not sleeping, you should consider going on a walk to let him breathe some fresh air and play around with other children! Sometimes however, the weather won’t be that nice for kids to play outside!

In cases like that you can simply leave your baby to play with its toys in the nursery! Unfortunately, floor coverings more often than other surfaces need thorough cleaning. In the pile of the carpet, especially the long one, particles of dirt and debris linger, which cannot be completely cleaned even with a good vacuum cleaner.

Vacuuming cannot get rid of these problems, and even a clean carpet at first glance can be not only a source of dust and an unpleasant odor, but also a serious threat to the health of residents of the house, especially children – dust, microorganisms, small particles falling into the air from a contaminated carpet, can cause allergic reactions, respiratory diseases, infection of the mucous membranes, etc.

The best way to go around this is to leave it to a professional. Prolux Carpet Cleaning uses special equipment and special means, in order to cope with: any dirt, dust, unpleasant odors, spores of harmful microorganisms, especially adversely affecting the health of allergy sufferers.

Keeping the Toys Clean

Lastly, do not forget to wipe your baby’s toys as often as possible! Babies tend to chew on and swallow almost anything that they can get their hands on. Make sure your baby’s toys are not sharp objects or something that can harm them in any way.

Babies love stuffed animals, and why shouldn’t they? They’re fluffy, funny and cute! You can keep them clean with a simple baby wipe. If they appear too dirty, you can always pop them in the washing machine! For the plastic toys, which seem to be a trend recently, you can wash them with hot, soapy water.

It goes without mentioning that you should be there to help your baby explore the world and have fun with other children as often as possible! We do however live in a busy and sped up world, so that is not always doable. No matter if they have some outside time or not, keeping the nursery (and your home) as clean as possible must be on the top of your priority list as a parent.
