If you have kids, there’s a 100% chance that you’ll have many messy situations to deal with. You may be able to handle some of those messy situations yourself. However, some issues may require the help of a professional. Here are a few serious ways to address the messes of your children.
Stains on a Wall
A wet wall eraser is usually sufficient for cleaning dirty handprints off a wall. Crayon marks can be removed with a wall eraser or by wiping the marks away with a cloth that you’ve put dry-cleaning solvent on. Damage from a permanent marker can be removed by apply rubbing alcohol to the mark with a soft cloth or cotton ball.
Removing Carpet Stains
You may be able to remove stains from the carpet in your home. However, for those really tough stains such as ink, blood, nail polish or the mud stains that occurred when the kids and pets went puddle-splashing after a big rain, you may need the services of a professional carpet cleaning service. Stain Busters Carpet Cleaning and similar companies will have shampoos, stain removal products and special cleaning procedures that can remove tough stains without damaging your carpet.
Cleaning a Messy Room
A kid’s room can look like a tornado blew through it if you don’t impose organization or storage rules. Adding furniture such as a chest or bench seat with storage can help keep the room uncluttered. Closet organizers, under-the-bed storage, wall shelves and many other easy-to-find room accessories can help you gain and keep control of the stuff in our kid’s room. Having your kids assist with a regular cleaning schedule such as weekly vacuuming or nightly “pick-up” will help keep the room from looking messy.
Removing Paint Stains
Kids have a way of getting paint everywhere, especially on their clothing. If your child comes home from daycare or school with paint on their clothes, you might want to check out information from a site such as Kidspot for tips on removing those stains. It’s always good to check the care label on the article of clothing. You might also want to ask your child’s teacher what cleaning recommendations are listed on the paint that was used during a project.
You can expect to have some messy situations occur as your child expresses its creativity and enjoys playtime as only a child can do. A guideline for cleaning various materials can be an invaluable resource.
