Germs, strep and staph bacteria commonly lurk in baby gear. Regular maintenance and taking advantage of our baby gear cleaning service can help prevent this.
Research conducted by Dr. Charles Gerba, Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Arizona, found that vehicles with children have 147% more bacteria than ones without. He states that, “This result is in part due to unclean car seats. We advise thorough cleaning of car seats on a regular basis.”Get Started

Our Cleaning Process
BabyQuip Quality Providers are certified cleaning experts. Before beginning the process of cleaning any baby gear item, they are first and foremost required to review the product manufacturer guidelines and instructions. They also follow the CDC guidelines for all items cleaned. A meticulous 5-step cleaning process is followed for each and every item cleaned. Products are vacuumed, cleaned, sanitized, thoroughly dried and carefully reassembled. Rest assured that when you use our baby gear cleaning services, your gear will be returned sparkling clean!Book Now
Vacuuming We vacuum from top to bottom, inside all moving parts, hidden seams, covers and straps to remove every last crumb.
Cleaning We use a combination of water and mild detergent, or dye-free and scent-free soap (such as castile soap) to remove germs, dirt, stains and impurities from baby gear items. These types of cleaning agents safely clean fabrics and surfaces using surfactants to remove dirt, grease, and common bacteria and viruses.
Sanitizing Quality Providers use steam cleaners or other tools to sanitize and remove a plethora of substances from baby gear including: bacteria, viruses, urine, feces, vomit, grease, and other substances. We follow all product manufacturer guidelines and work directly with manufacturers to follow their best practices for cleaning. For specific details about how we clean car seats, please click here.
Drying We are sure to soak up any excess water and moisture with microfiber cloths and then let the fabric dry completely. We often set items in the sun, outdoors, or in front of a fan to thoroughly dry.
Safe Reassembly We are careful to put all the pieces back together just right.
To become certified and be listed on our site to offer baby gear cleaning services, a Quality Provider is required to complete extensive training, pass quizzes and demonstrate that they have all the tools and skills to perform top to bottom deep cleanings.
They also have to thoroughly and effectively clean multiple pieces of gear, before being allowed to handle and clean your baby equipment.Book Now
We use only natural, non-toxic, baby-safe and parent-approved cleaning products and tools that are tough on dirt, grime and stains, but safe for your little ones.
Handheld Steam Cleaner
Hot, pressurized steam eliminates grease, grime, bacteria and helps remove stains without harsh chemicals. For information on how we clean car seats click here.
Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner
Multiple attachments effectively clean hard surfaces and fabrics with or without the use of water.
Microfiber is a super soft, non-abrasive, streak-free and lint-free material. It will not scratch surfaces and is an eco-friendly alternative to disposable paper towels.
Water, mild detergent, enzyme cleaner (for urine and odors), and stain/spot remover efficiently clean fabrics and hard surfaces.
Bristle brushes and cotton swabs get into hard-to-reach creases, crevices and seams.
No Harsh Chemicals
We never use bleach, disinfecting sprays or wipes as these are against most product manufacturer cleaning guidelines.
