Pushchairs take a lot of abuse over the years. Toddlers aren't fussy about dropping snacks and drinks, so crumbs accumulate along with liquids, leaving a paste that soaks into the fabrics. Sticky food, ice cream, juice, cake - you name it, it all ends up on the fabric and in the creases.
And if you go anywhere near a beach or sand pit, your pushchair will attract this like a magnet! In the end, your pushchair will become grubby and stained. What's more, bacteria and mould can thrive, which can cause sickness and skin rashes.
Wiping down a pushchair once in a while is fine, but it doesn't remove all of the dirt and bacteria. Eventually, the fabrics will begin to smell bad and look grimy. Few parents would be happy for their child to ride around in something that looks and smells this way.
In cases like this, it's wise to get your pushchair deep-cleaned.
Where do those hours, days and weeks go? As a parent, you have many other priorities that demand your time and attention. Setting aside time to give your pushchair a thorough clean never seems to happen, and the dirt keeps accumulating. We covered in detail how to clean a pushchair in one of our blogs if you really do want to try it yourself.
When it becomes too bad, the Valet Queens Bicester team will freshen up your pushchair for you, saving you time and effort.
More people these days are seeking out pre-loved items as it saves money and helps the environment. Perhaps you've been given a pushchair, but it has seen better days and is in dire need of attention before you use it. When it comes to baby items, you need to be confident that the product is safe and hygienic for your precious child to use.
The Valet Queens Bicester team will restore your pre-loved pushchair using our skills and experience, so the item will look as if you just brought it home from the shop!
Brand new good quality baby items don't come cheap. If you've finished with your pushchair and want to make some extra cash, you stand a better chance of making a quick sale if the item looks in great condition and smells fresh.
Having the pushchair professionally cleaned by Valet Queens is a great idea, and any costs involved will be recouped as you will be able to charge more.
Maybe it's been a while, but now you are expecting another bundle of joy. All of your old baby equipment has been stored in a cupboard or up in the loft, and now you've realised that the fabric on the pushchair is spotted with mould* and mildew, and it smells musty.
You could throw it in a skip and buy a new one, or you could get Valet Queens to deep clean it for you. It's a much more economic option, and it brings brilliant results!
*Black mould is a real worry, as the spores have been known to cause or worsen asthma attacks, so it is never wise to risk your child's health by using any item that's infected.
We employ a range of methods depending on the materials involved.
Here's a basic breakdown of what's involved:
We only use child-friendly, non-toxic cleaning solutions that are safe for the environment. You can rest assured that once your pushchair has been cleaned that there will be no harmful residue left over
In most cases, we are able to remove the majority of stains. However, some stains - particularly those made by black mould, or that have been left untreated for a long time - may still be faintly visible after cleaning. Even so, the fabrics will be clean and safe to use.
On average, we usually advise customers to allow between 48 and 72 hours to perform a full deep clean. If you need the pushchair in a hurry, we offer an express service at an extra charge, although the precise timing will depend on the current workload.
We only undertake minor repairs during the cleaning process. Any major damage will need specialist attention or replacement parts from the manufacturers. Please communicate with us regarding this issue if you have any questions and to discover more about our prices.
