Undoing The Interior Design Damage That Children May Cause

You don’t need to have unruly children just looking to break everything they come into contact with in order to see a noticeable effect on your home as soon as your little loved ones can crawl and run around. 

Children are natural explorers, naturally a little less co-ordinated than adults, and have no idea what boundaries are appropriate unless they’re correctly taught.

As such, those who like to keep well-cared-for homes are in for an awakening once they have kids. Moreover, the intense nature of parenting means you may not have as much time to clean as you used to, and it’s okay if you don’t tidy perfectly day after day. 

That said, sometimes, it’s good to focus on undoing the damage that children may have caused. 

This way, you can already put protections in place to sort you out. Without further ado, please consider some of the following advice:

Cleaning Your Floors

Children can be tough on floors, leaving behind scuffs, stains, and dirt. To undo this, it's good to have a smart cleaning solution to hand. This may involve sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming, depending on the type of flooring you have. 

Hardwood floors can be cleaned with a damp mop and a mild cleaning solution, but we’d also recommend checking out these worth reading floor buffer reviews, while tile and lino floors can be cleaned with a mixture of warm water and vinegar. If you’re looking for a cheaper solution, floor wipes can work well. 

Carpets should be vacuumed regularly and also should be deep cleaned with a steam cleaner to remove stains and dirt.

The Challenge Of Stained Carpets

Carpet stains can be especially difficult to remove, especially if they are caused by children's spills and accidents. 

To undo the impact caused by these stains, it's important to act quickly and use the right cleaning products. 

For example, a mixture of baking soda and water can be used to remove red wine stains, while a solution of white vinegar and water can be used to remove coffee and tea stains. 

For more stubborn stains, you may need to call in a professional carpet cleaner. For the most part, prevention is worth more than the cure here, and so setting ground rules for where kids can eat or drink their juice is important.

Restoring Broken Bedroom Furniture

Children can be hard on furniture, leaving behind scratches, dents, and broken pieces. A solution may involve sanding down scratches and dents, and filling in any gaps or holes with wood filler. If a piece of furniture is broken beyond repair, it may need to be replaced. 

If the piece is a family treasure, it may be best to call in a professional furniture restorer or to focus on a more intensive reupholstering effort. 

Again setting ground rules is important, like no playing with outside toys like sports equipment inside, or ensuring the furniture is the right size for them as they grow.

With this advice, we hope you’ll be able to more easily undo the interior design damage of children in the right way.
