Tips for Cleaning Baby's Room
A consistent cleaning routine with the focus on germy hotspots is the key to keeping your baby's room clean.
Germs spread via airborne move on dust and through droplets that are coughed or sneezed, and through contact.
#1 Areas to watch out: the changing table and crib railings should be washed with a disinfectant daily.
Bleach is quite effective in stopping the spread of viral or bacterial contamination, but be sure to rinse and dry thoroughly and allow any chlorine fumes to completely dissipate before placing baby back into the area.
#2 Damp laundry should be washed as soon as possible.
#3 Sheets and bed cover should be laundered and changed-out at least once a week. Wash them instantly with hot water and bleach if a child has been sick or soiled them.
#4 The proper level of humidity will make it easier for your baby to breathe. Do depending on the season you might use de-humidifier or humidifier to keep the air- moisture level in the baby's room at between 30 and 60 percent.
As mineral deposits can build up and stagnant water can turn to breeding ground for harmful bacteria, portable appliances like humidifiers need to be cleaned frequently.
#5 Floors in baby's room should be cleaned or vacuum once a week to keep dust from building up.
#6 Using a high efficiency air filter in your heating and AC unit may reduce pollen, mold spores, and levels of other allergens and dust throughout the entire home.
