Keeping Surfaces Clean Around Children

Parents with children under the age of 7 can attest to the fact that their houses are 90% covered in muck. This is despite their valiant attempts to train their children to not drape themselves around walls; to not stick their ever-sticky fingers on the polished dining tables and to not upend every single dish they take a bite out of. Keeping surfaces clean when there are young children can be a nightmare but there are plenty of solutions that will help. Here are a few of them: 

Protective Covering on the Floors

Go to carpet retailers Auckland and stock up on several varieties to lie on your floors. Find good expensive brands that can be cleaned easily and reused for a long time or find cheap brands that you can keep for a few months and then replace with newer ones. The best thing about this is that there will be no slip and slide accidents even if your tiny tots spill something on the floor; the rough surface will absorb the liquid and prevent any accidents from happening. Of course the downside is that no matter which option you choose you are ultimately going to end up cleaning the spills out.

Protective Covering on the Flat Surfaces

Apart from having a carpet on the floor, you can also cover your dining table, counter tops and coffee tables with clear polythene covers. There are table cloths made specifically from heavy plastic that acts like real cloth but has the durability and versatility of plastic. The benefit of this is that any spills and stains will simply roll off, or you can easily clean it up with a sponge and some soapy water. Even if the stains don’t come out, at least you haven’t damaged your precious table and you only need to worry about a polythene cover.

Wax Seals

Wax seals and sprays may be the greatest tool ever invented in terms of easy cleaning. This is a light coating of wax, canned in an aerosol that can be sprayed over polished surfaces like banisters, tables and counter tops. Rough surfaces like walls are a no-no. All you need to do is to spray the wax lightly onto a table, spread it evenly with a rag and then the table if stain proof until the wax wears away. Depending on usage it will last for about a week and can easily be cleaned with a wet towel. Since the wax spray is no good on the walls, try rubber paint on it instead. This is a glossy paint that is water proof, so it can be washed multiple times.
