question about carpet cleaning

Post by Darlene » Thu Apr 06, 2006 5:50 pm

I need to call a carpet cleaning busness for annual spring cleaning. But I am concerned that commercial carpet busnesses may have toxic residue in there cleaning solution that could harm our IRN. I don't know what chemicals to ask about that has proven to be either safe or toxic for parrots. I am afraid they might claim to be safe and non toxic, just to get the job, but not really knowing. Does anyone have any facts or information on this subject? I think I would board our IRN for a couple of days, but that won't make him very happy. And I am afraid of any possable toxic residue left on the carpets

Don't do it. Carpet cleaning chemicals are NASTY and leave fumes for days while they dry. Then, the residual dust from them gets "kicked up" as you walk.

If you really need to clean the carpets (I've been there) you should use Oxyclean and water, nothing more. It works, very well, and is safe.

:) Thank you Athena, I didn't know about useing Oxyclean for the carpets. I have a steam vac, so I will go with the oxyclean and do it myself. Luna is all over the house with me. Either behind me or on my shoulder. So I am always aware of his safety. And so far I have not seen any carpet cleaners that didn't have chemicals.

Commercial carpet cleaning uses really nasty solvents.

Yeah. Don't do a commercial carpet cleaning, they use some really nasty solvents, but they do a good job cleaning a carpet. OxyClean and a steam cleaner is the way to go.

What about a product called Petastic? I bought it at the pet store, havent used it yet. It says contains a scientific enzyme bland that is specially designed to instantly eliminate odors and stainnn and is safe for pets.
It contains water, prprietary enzyme blend, isopropyl alcohol and citrus oil.

*edits I just found a new tub of Oxi Clean in the garage...I will use that instead :)

Hi Mazziemom,

I have a Vax carpet shampooer, and just use laundry liquid detergent, the windows are left open to assist drying, one of my friends uses a good quality dish washing liquid, and we both have beige carpets.

If you're really worried, maybe a steam clean with plain water might suit your needs. But make sure you ventilate properly, so you don't get mould spores from a damp warm environment.
