There comes a time in the day when all the arts and crafts supplies need to be put away and stored in their respective drawers. Little hands (and faces) need to be washed, and the tablecloth needs to be stripped from the kitchen table and thrown into the wash with all the paint-stained clothes. Artwork gets hung up to dry, while children’s active imaginations must wait until tomorrow for their chance to be artistically expressed. Maybe it’s time for dinner or time for bed, but either way – it’s often on you to clean up after your kids make a mess learning and exploring.
If you’re anything like me, you take pride in your clean home. My friends always comment when they come over to visit that if it weren’t for the extensive collection of macaroni artwork on the fridge, you’d have no idea that four children live here. But they’re exaggerating; with our daily art activities, one can only keep the carpets so clean. When you homeschool kids who are around the house all day, either inside learning with messy materials, or playing outside in the muddy backyard, there’s only so much you can do to keep the carpets clean. I’m always quick to clean up accidental spills and stains, but my carpets nevertheless started to turn an unappealing shade of light brown.
A friend of mine suggested these local Henderson carpet cleaners. I wasn’t too sure about hiring a professional carpet cleaning company as I knew they often used toxic chemicals that could be left behind and dispersed into the air. I’ve got four kids and a dog who all like playing around and wrestling in the carpet – I’m not risking any contact with dangerous chemicals! So just to be safe, I gave Sahara Chem Dry a call and asked about what kind of chemicals they use in their cleaning products. They happily explained that they only use organic, non-toxic cleaning products that are 100% safe for my kids and my dog. I also learned that their specific cleaning method of hot water extraction is a lot less likely to leave behind any sticky residue than other methods. I told them to sign me up!
Just hours after they came by, the carpets were clean and dry – ready for my kids to go back to playing. Of course no shoes are allowed inside, but we won’t be stopping our daily arts and crafts time any day soon!
