The Importance of Regularly Cleaning Your Child's Car Seat

As a parent, your top priority is keeping your child safe at all times. One important aspect of child safety that is often overlooked is the cleanliness of your child's car seat.

Car seats can quickly become breeding grounds for germs and bacteria, especially if they are not cleaned on a regular basis. Spills, leaks, and messes can easily go unnoticed in the crevices and cracks of a car seat, leading to odors, stains, and potentially even health risks.

But it's not just spills and leaks that can make car seats dirty. Your child's car seat is also subjected to a variety of other contaminants, including sweat, food crumbs, and even car exhaust fumes. All of these can accumulate over time, creating a potentially unhealthy environment for your child.

Cleaning your child's car seat on a regular basis is an important part of maintaining a safe and healthy environment for them. It's also a good idea to deep clean your car seat at least once a year, or more often if it gets especially dirty.

There are a few different options for cleaning your child's car seat. You can try using a mild detergent and warm water to spot clean any visible stains or messes. For a deeper clean, you can also use a car seat cleaning solution specifically designed for use on child safety seats.

If you're not comfortable cleaning your child's car seat yourself, or if you don't have the time, there are also professional car seat cleaning services that can do the job for you (like Germz Be Gone). These services use specialized equipment and eco-friendly cleaning products to thoroughly sanitize and disinfect your child's car seat, ensuring that it is as clean and safe as possible.

In conclusion, it is important for parents to prioritize the regular cleaning of their child's car seat in order to maintain a healthy and safe environment for their little one. Whether you choose to do it yourself or hire a professional service, taking the time to keep your child's car seat clean is an important aspect of responsible parenting.

Home Allergy Relief

germz be gone home allergy relief


Allergy symptom relief is just a click away!

“Cleaning” is to remove soil, dirt, debris from a surface or the air. If you look around your home, do you see soil, dirt or debris sitting on anything? If you do, just know that it’s much worse in areas you can’t see. Perhaps your current cleaner forgot to get that area or they simply never get that area. The lack of thoroughness is contributing to your allergies. Luckily, with Germz Be Gone, allergy symptom relief is right around the corner.

Pro Tip: Most cleaning companies you hire will only clean or wipe things at shoulder height. Depending on the height of the individual, you could be looking at no higher than 5-5 1/2 feet. Be sure to specify the height in whatever agreement you have with them or you may end up disappointed in their results.

The problem is when areas are neglected they become hotbeds for dust and other allergens that will persistently trigger your allergies. Walk through the doorway, and the little bit of wind you create actually disturbs “resting” allergens on the lip of the doors molding, sends them airborne and eventually end up in your respiratory system. A similar concept can be applied to your floors, mattress, sofa and any where else you spend your time. See for yourself: rub a cloth on the top of your door and doorjamb and notice how much dust you knock down (consider it free allergy testing).

Pro Tip: Cleaning companies will not move furniture to dust or vacuum behind or underneath. Sometimes they may have equipment to reach certain areas, but to thoroughly clean an area, the piece will need to be moved. If you want specific areas cleaned, be a good customer and move the furniture yourself. Who knows, you may find that priceless earring, favorite bookmark or remote control if you do. Otherwise, hire Germz Be Gone and we do the heavy cleaning.

At Germz Be Gone we specialize in home allergy relief.

We recommend you enhance your maintenance cleaning every 3 months with our Home Allergy Relief package. This package is designed to coexist with your current cleaning company’s regiment or your own. We perform an extreme dusting and vacuuming of areas that need it most like your sofa and mattress as well as the areas that are hard to get like blinds and ceiling fans.

To finish up, we apply a probiotic mist your home’s air and surfaces. This helps tremendously in providing nontoxic, hypoallergenic sanitizing, deodorizing and allergen removal. What’s more, the probiotics keep working and protecting for several days.

Superbugs On The Rise. Here’s How We Battle Them

Are chemicals really winning against superbugs? Short answer: no.

Antibiotics are getting a lot of attention these days; and not for good reason. It seems their overuse has caused and is causing a spike of antibiotic-resistant bacteria (superbugs) which is infecting people in some parts of the United States. A recent news story caught my attention and reaffirmed my use of steam and probiotic cleaners.

What’s going on?

You may have already heard of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA, but there is another one on the rise which tops the World Health Organization’s list of dangerous bacteria: Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE. In 2013, 39 patients were infected with the superbug at a hospital in Illinois. A hospital spokesperson said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked the outbreak to a tainted medical device. Two patients died.

Today, the Center for Disease Controls reports over 175 CRE cases in the U.S. alone. With the numbers on the rise, folks are looking for solutions and remedies. Too many times, though, the “remedy” turns out to be stronger antibiotics. “We need to be very, very careful about when we use antibiotics because that’s what leads to more resistance,” said Dr. Susan Bleasdale, Medical Director of Infection Control at the University of Illinois at Chicago. “It’s that antibiotics use over years that has led to the problem we have right now.”

How’d we get here?

Based on the countless studies and articles I’ve read, there is one trend I see in the overuse of antibiotics that gets a tiny mention, but absolutely no focus: the chemical cleaners being used to clean equipment, bedding, and other components are not effective at all and are being misapplied. The victims of such harmful bacteria often contract the infection from contaminated tubing, devices, even improper hand washing. So if the majority of antibiotic-resistant-bacteria cases come from the environment, why then is the focus of prevention on the ingestion of antibiotic drugs?

While antibiotics come in pill form, in fact they can also be something topical like an ointment or perhaps a chemical disinfectant like bleach or ammonia. Chemical cleaners, I would argue, are far more prevalent than any antibiotic drugs. Nearly everyone has some form of disinfectants or chemical cleaners in their household. And since you don’t need a prescription for some of the most dangerous chemicals known to mankind, you can certainly pick some up at the store yourself and start cleaning. Being freely available, it’s the widespread use of chemical cleaners that has led us down this slippery slope.

However, if you’re in the mood to clean or need to sanitize your environment for peace of mind, my suggestion is to leave those chemical cleaners behind as you may be contributing to superbug creation.

The pitfalls of chemical cleaners.

You may think they are killing all the germs they touch, but unless the proper amount of “dwell time” is applied, chemicals like chlorine bleach and ammonia are useless. In order to be effective, most bleach manufacturers call for cleaning before applying the bleach then letting the bleach remain on the surface between five and ten minutes. For a contractor, whose profit motive is time sensitive, or for a busy parent having to pick up junior in a few minutes, the likelihood of adhering to those recommendations is low and places your health at risk.

If you hire a contractor who uses chemicals or you do the cleaning yourself, be wary of the following pitfalls when using chemicals to clean:

  • Chemicals have a limited time of effectiveness once diluted with water. Bleach, for instance, is only effective for 24-hours after mixing it with water.
  • Chemicals kill everything; the good microbes too. When the bad pathogens outnumber the good guys infection occurs.
  • Chemicals do not eliminate biofilm. You may have heard of MRSA, CRE or other “superbugs.” Biofilm acts as their lair or incubator. Biofilm itself is a system of microorganisms working together to survive. Over time (several minutes), biofilm develops a relatively hard outer layer which shields its inhabitants from intruders like chemical disinfectants.
  • Chemical cleaners’ effectiveness are only fleeting at best. Once chemicals are wiped up or evaporate, they no longer kill microorganisms. Then, the harmful germs make their way from under the biofilm to the battlefield, where plenty of food in the form of dead microorganisms exist. These germs feed, mutate, and grow stronger with each generation. The creation of a superbug is now well under way….
  • Chemicals leave behind a trail of negative side effects. Fumes from nasty chemicals can wreak havoc on nervous systems, impair cognitive abilities, and contribute to respiratory issues long after their use.

What should I use?

At home and in my own sanitizing business, we use a combination of steam and probiotics. Yes, I said it…”probiotics.” The steam is a given. With its natural cleaning ability it also sanitizes like no other. Heat destroys all things–even microbes resistant to chemicals or drugs.

The probiotics then work wonders in several ways:

  • Probiotics increase the positive microflora in the environment. If the bad germs are outnumbered by the good ones, infection risk plummets.
  • Probiotics consume food sources pathogens would normally consume. No food for germs means no survival.
  • Probiotics spread out making it difficult for harmful germs to attach to surfaces and colonize; reducing biofilm creation.
  • Probiotics protect for several days since they are a living thing.
  • Probiotics reduce ATP from pollen, dust mite feces, pet dander, etc. which helps naturally purify the air.
  • Probiotics destroy odors at the source and work at the microscopic level.
  • Probiotics are natural and organic which means no negative consequences.
  • Probiotics are able to communicate with other microorganisms and basically tell them to shut down reproduction. What chemical can talk to bacteria?

I highly recommend purchasing a probiotic cleaner. It will clean better than any chemical on the market without creating superbugs and doesn’t carry a laundry list of warnings.

Much like drug commercials listing a myriad of bad consequences if you take their pill, when it comes to sanitizing, chemical solutions can do you more harm than good. The costs must be weighed and if an effective, healthier alternative exists you may want to consider exploring it.
