    The Significance of a Carseat Cleaning Service

    Child carseats are exposed to a myriad of spills, accidents, crumbs, and unexpected messes. Beyond the obvious aesthetic concerns, a dirty car seat can compromise the safety and well-being of your little one. Regular cleaning is not just about appearances; it’s a commitment to creating a healthy and comfortable space for your child during every journey.

    The Unique Challenges of Child Carseat Cleaning

    Child carseats come with their own set of challenges, including difficulty in removing and replacing fabrics, intricate harness systems which require special care, sensitive fabrics, and hard-to-reach crevices. Unlike adult seats, child car seats require specialized cleaning methods that ensure thorough sanitation without compromising safety features and fabrics.

    Why Choose Rockabye for your Professional Child Carseat Cleaning?

    a. Expertise and Experience: Trained technicians understand the intricacies of child car seats and manufacturers recommended cleaning methods, ensuring a meticulous cleaning process tailored to the unique needs of infant and toddler seats.

    b. Child-Safe Cleaning Agents: Our professional carseat cleaning service uses child-safe, non-toxic cleaning agents which are manufacturer approved to eliminate stains, odors, and bacteria without compromising the integrity of the car seat materials.

    c. Comprehensive Stain Removal: Stubborn stains, whether from spilled milk or snack mishaps, are effectively treated with specialized stain removers, ensuring a spotless and hygienic seat. While there may be some stains that simply won’t come out 100%, we have successfully improved the appearance. Unfortunately, fading due to sun damage or urine (ammonia) burn isn’t something any company can remove. However, even car seats with those issues will look, feel, and smell refreshed and clean.

    d. Harness System Care: Professionals pay careful attention to the intricate harness systems, ensuring they are cleaned in accordance with safety standards as these straps are one of the most important components of a car seat’s safety. Harnesses are reassembled to assure they are correct, fully functional, and secure after cleaning.

    The Professional Child Carseat Cleaning Service Process

    a. Initial Inspection: Trained technicians inspect the car seat for any damage, wear, or areas requiring special attention.

    b. Vacuuming: Loose debris and crumbs are removed using powerful vacuums, preparing the seat for deeper cleaning.

    c. Stain Treatment: Specialized, child-safe and approved stain removers are applied to treat and eliminate fabric stains prior to washing.

    d. Shell Cleaning: Carseat shells are washed with diluted hospital grade cleaner which kills bacteria, virus, and pathogens.

    e. Gentle Steam Cleaning: High-pressure steam effectively removes excess embedded dirt, sanitizes, and removes any cleaner residue on the seat shell without compromising safety features.

    f. Harness System Check: The harness system is carefully inspected, cleaned, and adjustments are made as needed to ensure proper functionality.

    g. Drying: There are no quick dry methods for car seat fabrics. They must be air dried. The more padding the car seat has, the more time it can take to dry. Tumble drying is strongly discouraged by manufacturers, as the heat can erode fabric lining/backing materials and compromise the anti-flammability components within the fabrics. We recommend allowing 48-hours to have your car seat back for use.

    Benefits of Professional Child Carseat Cleaning Services

    a. Child Safety: Professional cleaning ensures that the car seat’s safety features remain intact and functional.

    b. Health and Hygiene: Thorough cleaning eliminates allergens, bacteria, and germs, creating a healthier in-car environment for your child.

    c. Longevity: Regular cleaning extends the lifespan of the car seat, ensuring it remains a reliable and safe travel companion.

    d. Peace of Mind: Entrusting the task to professionals saves parents the time and hassle of another chore and provides peace of mind, knowing their child is traveling in a clean and secure environment.

    Your child’s safety deserves meticulous attention, and a clean car seat is an integral part of the equation. Professional child carseat cleaning service by Rockabye Houston provides the expertise needed to maintain a spotless and safe travel environment for your little one. Elevate your child’s travel experience by scheduling a professional cleaning today and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a sparkling clean and safe car seat.

    Cleanliness: Coronavirus Concerns

    Clean Baby Gear - Rockabye Baby Rentals

    In light of the worldwide rapid spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19), we felt we would be remiss in not addressing this issue. During our 16-years in business this is now the 9th unusual viral health crisis we have dealt with, although COVID-19 is definitely unique. In addition to the standard seasonal Flu concerns, we have worked though outbreaks of Swine Flu, SARS, MERS, Ebola, Chicken Pox, Mumps, and Measles. Rockabye is aware, and proactively implementing steps to assure the cleanliness and sanitary condition of the baby gear you order.

    May 2021 UPDATE – Rockabye Baby Rentals is proud to say all our staff is voluntarily fully vaccinated for Covid-19. We have always taken precautions to keep our teams healthy. We annually all get Flu vaccines, thus we view this no differently. Our only cleaning process change is that every item is released bagged to assure to minimize the number of hands that physically touch items once cleaned and sanitized.

    Jan 2022 UPDATE: We are proud to say all our staff has voluntarily received Covid-19 boosters. However, since our tiniest customers are not eligible for this vaccine yet, our staff continues to wear masks during contact with customers.

    Here are links to best practices regarding the Coronavirus

    Cleaning Process

    Our cleaning process remains the same. All items are stripped of removable fabrics which are then laundered using dye-free, fragrance free detergent. Hard items and gear that cannot be laundered are scrubbed with a hospital grade cleanser which kills bacteria, virus, fungus, and blood born pathogens. Items are rinsed, then steam sanitized at 170-degrees to remove any residue and kill any additional bacteria, virus, or infestation that may remain in hard to reach cracks and crevasses. Items are then placed in a sanitary dry room to completely dry before being reassembled and bagged or covered to remain dust free while in our warehouses.

    This cleaning process was developed in our first year in business out of concern for providing sanitary baby gear, and products that reduce instances of skin sensitivities for young children. That’s why we are confident in saying our baby rentals are the cleanest available baby rentals. We have in excess of 150,000 s.f. of warehouse space in our four warehouse locations. In all locations, every item is bagged when possible, with oversized items covered while in our commercial warehouses.

    Extra Safety Measures

    Our staff carries sanitary antibacterial/antiviral wipes when making deliveries and pick-ups. You may see them, on occasion, wiping down items they have touched during the delivery of baby gear. Some of our staff may use gloves when handling items as an added precaution. Also, don’t be alarmed if a staff member wears a face mask while at your property. It seems the Coronavirus is spreading at a time when seasonal Spring allergies are an issue. We don’t want our customers to be concerned about contamination of their property, should our staff be suffering seasonal allergies, and sneeze or cough while delivering. Therefore, Rockabye requires staff to wear masks to avoid any concerns. Rockabye also has made it known that if a staff member is ill, they should report it to headquarters and plan to stay home and another staff member will take over the route.

    However, we will continue to wear masks during deliveries, and retain our extra sanitary practices as long as recommended.

    Insurance & Responsibility

    Rockabye Baby Rentals is fully insured. However, some consumers may not understand how insurance works with rental services. In the rental industry insurance covers liability for our equipment, our vehicles and our staff on both our property and on other properties while the equipment is in our possession. Responsibility transfers to the renter at the moment possession is taken by a renter or their agent.

    What is an agent?

    An agent would be the person or entity the renter arranges to accept delivery. Thus, an agent my be a family member, your housekeeper, a nanny, a hotel concierge or front desk, a building doorman, an airbnb host, etc. Any person other than yourself that you wish to have items left with.

    Why Does Responsibility Transfer?

    Once our staff departs a location, we do not have oversight of the items. We do not know how the equipment is being used. We have no idea if cribs are moved and set up again properly. We have no idea if an adult is using a stroller as a temporary seat, or if harness straps are being used. Insurance companies do not offer coverage for items once possession is transferred. Thus, it is the responsibility of the renter to use equipment properly and care for it during the rental.

    My Building Requires an Insurance Certificate

    Rockabye offers a standard and current Certificate of Insurance at no charge to renters with confirmed orders to provide to their Condo building as may be required. However, if your building or facility requires a Certificate of Insurance with a Named Certificate Holder – you must allow 5-buisiness days advance notice and there is a fee of $40 which is the cost we are charged by our insurance broker. In instances that an additional insured entity is required, 5-days advance notice is required, and a fee of $75 will apply. Renter is responsible for providing exact information for Certificate Holder and/or Additional Insured information.

    Hold Harmless

    Rockabye Baby Rentals is not responsible for accidents or injuries caused directly or indirectly in the use of the rented items. Responsible adult supervision is required at all times when using any rented item. By confirming and renting items from Rockabye Baby Rentals, the renter hereby agrees for myself, all of my family and all heirs to hold harmless, waive, release and discharge Rockabye Baby Rentals, their rental agents, servants, employees, agents, officers, directors, or representatives for any and all liability for any property damage, loss, personal injury, loss of life and/or other casualty which may occur during the course of this rental agreement and the use of the items. It is further understood and agreed that this waiver, release and assumption of risk is to be binding on my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators, and assigns in the event of any death or injury.

    Crib History

    Who knew cribs and baby beds could be political? Most people aren’t aware that baby goods manufacturers, just like most other industries, have lobbyists in Washington, DC who advocate for the manufacturers when the government is deciding laws and regulations. In the past decade we have seen sweeping changes regarding cribs in the US. Yes, the good old drop side crib has been banished. The drop side design itself is not the problem. Drop side cribs were the standard in the US since the 1940’s and it was common that cribs were handed down from one generation to the next. Just like cars, changes are necessary to keep people safe.

    Independent Baby Equipment Rental Companies

    Here is a listing of Independent  Equipment Rental Companies by State. The companies below are reputable independent local businesses.
