If you are the parent of a baby or toddler with asthma You will know how important cleanliness is. You may also know that cleaning up after your baby isn’t always easy. Especially if they have allergies and asthma, it’s a good idea to see a childrens asthma specialist. or steps Something can help keep everything in the house cleaner. And it’s less likely to cause an allergic reaction for your baby. Here are my top tips for cleaning around your baby:
Clean your clothes
- Use a laundry detergent that is free from perfumes and dyes. A baby’s sensitive skin can react to fabric softeners, fragrances, and bright colors. Some babies are also allergic to artificial scents so it’s safest to stick with products that have been tested for their safety on young skin. If you prefer fragrant detergents, consider buying unscented versions of your favorite brands or using fragrance-free products like Woolite Baby Laundry Detergent ($11).
- Wash clothes in cold water instead of hot water (unless they’re labeled “delicates”). Hot water can cause some fabrics like cotton or silk to lose elasticity over time, making them less comfortable on your baby’s skin. Cold water washes are just as effective at cleaning too!
Clean your carpet
There are many ways to clean your carpet. A vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter is one of the best ways to remove dust and allergens from carpets. It is important to use a vacuum that has a HEPA filter because it will trap more of the dust in its bag instead of redistributing it through your home when you empty the bag into another container.
Another option is using a steam cleaner, which uses hot water and chemicals (or dry shampoo) to loosen dirt on your carpet. This method can be effective at cleaning carpets but may require multiple applications before all stains are removed.
A third option is hiring professionals to clean your home’s carpets; however, this can be expensive and may not be necessary if other methods work for you.
Clean the air
- HEPA filters are a must. These are machines that filter out dust particles, and they’re especially helpful if you have pets.
- Keep your pet away from the baby as much as possible, especially when he or she is sleeping or eating.
- Use a humidifier to increase moisture in the air and prevent asthma attacks by keeping mucus moist and thin so it can drain properly through your infant’s lungs.
- A dehumidifier will get rid of excess moisture in the air by removing water vapor from it, which also helps prevent asthma attacks because mucus won’t be too thick for your child’s lungs to push out when they get too much liquid build-up inside them during coughing fits caused by allergies or infections like pneumonia or bronchitis—two common causes of childhood asthma attacks.
Make it a priority
- Make it a priority.
- Clean your house regularly, and make sure you don’t have any dust or pet hair on the carpets.
- Wash your clothes frequently. You can also use an air purifier in your bedroom if you or your baby has asthma, but be careful not to overdo it—it’s recommended that you use the air purifier for no longer than 20 minutes at a time.
Baby Asthma friendly cleaning
Cleaning your home can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to cleaning up after the messes that your baby makes. But it doesn’t have to be! You can keep your little one safe while also keeping your home clean with these tips:
- Clean Your Clothes: When you wear clothes, they pick up dust, dirt, and germs from the outside. When you take off your clothes at night and put them back on in the morning those same things are transferred onto other parts of yourself like your arms and face. The only way to avoid this is by washing everything once a week at least (including sheets). If possible use an allergy-friendly detergent such as Seventh Generation or Arm & Hammer Essentials Sensitive Skin Detergent. Avoid dryer sheets as these often contain fragrances that aggravate asthma symptoms
- Finding a good childcare cleaning services is important to know what to look for when hiring one.
- There are several factors to consider before deciding on a cleaning service. One of the most important considerations is how often you want them to visit. If you have pets or kids in your home, then you probably want someone coming around once a week or more frequently. Note that many services will charge more if they come more often than once per month, so this may not be ideal if you’re on a budget!
- Once you land an agreement with your local cleaning service provider, don’t forget about what kind of results should be expected from them! Some clients have unrealistic expectations regarding their home improvement projects (including renovations). For example: “I’m going through some really stressful times right now at work,” said one man who hired us recently.”So when my house gets messy and dusty again because I haven’t got around yet…”
Changing the way you clean your home can be a challenge. It takes time to get used to new routines and methods, so don’t feel bad if it feels overwhelming at first. But remember that any change is worth doing if it means helping your child breathe easier. And once you do find something that works well for everyone in your household—be it green cleaning or other methods—don’t let go of what makes them happy!
