Worst Kid-Related Carpet Cleaning Problems Moms Have To Deal With


    Mother’s Day is the only nationally recognized day to thank moms for all the hard work they do. A great way to thank your mom for always being there to clean up vomit at 3 o’clock in the morning is by giving her perfectly clean (vomit-free!) carpets. At ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons, our carpet cleaning services in Chicago, IL are a great way to help your mom relax while enjoying soft carpeting between her toes.

    Moms take on the brunt of messes. They have to deal with dirty diapers, wet beds and sick kids, but they take it all in stride. Our carpet cleaning services are a great choice for your mom when you consider these kid-related messes you may have made your mom deal with:

    Kool-Aid: Kids may love it, but carpets don’t. Just like it stains children’s lips, this brightly colored drink will wreak havoc on a spotless carpet. The dry powder might not look very powerful, but there’s a reason why it can be used to dye hair, clothes, and skin.

    Ink: Kids are notorious for getting magic marker, gel pen, and paint on every surface. Most of the inks in children’s art products contain highly concentrated pigment and can leave an oily residue on carpets. Many inks aren’t water soluble and require special cleaning products to remove; permanent markers are often guilty of this.

    Blood: Blood stains may be a little offensive to guests, even after you tell the funny story of how you jumped off the couch and tried to fly when you were three. Blood stains can last for years, and the longer they sit, the harder they are to get out.

    Grass Stains: Playing outside is healthy for kids, but the grass stains on their tiny pants can transfer to light-colored carpets. Without immediate attention, grass stains can permanently discolor carpet fibers.

    Crayon: Like ink, kids seem to get crayon everywhere. The pigment in these waxy devils is surprisingly strong, and because the wax isn’t water soluble, crayons can be extremely difficult to clean out of fabric.

    Even though it may leave her wishing she called us years ago, you can thank your mom now for dealing with all of your messes. Contact ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons for our carpet cleaning services in Chicago, IL.
