Our cribs are only made of natural wood, the kind we used to raise our own children. It’s important to us that child safety goes above and beyond lax Federal requirements when caring for our youngest and dearest.
Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
Family Rentals, leading source for baby equipment rentals, including cribs, car seats and party rentals, announced this week an important quality control and care practice to keep all traveling families safe this spring. Devoted to infant and child safety, Family Rentals now only provides natural wood crib rentals for families to keep their young ones safe when traveling to South Florida this Spring Break.
It is a frightening fact that infants and children are often exposed to chemicals used in unsafe cribs. While the Environmental Protection Agency has identified these chemicals as dangerous for children, government regulations have yet to catch up. Families visiting Miami, Hollywood, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach, and surrounding areas must be careful about what kind of baby cribs they rent when traveling.
Family Rentals is a local, family-owned company with over 17 years serving South Florida vacationers, and backed by a stringent standard of family safety. “Many companies use harmful chemicals in their cribs – and those are poisonous to children.” said Mike Merlo, founder of Family Rentals. “Our cribs are only made of natural wood, the kind we used to raise our own children. It’s important to us that child safety goes above and beyond lax Federal requirements when caring for our youngest and dearest.”
While there have been some Federal changes to crib standards, such as eliminating the “drop-side cribs” that have caused many infant deaths over the last decade, many crib rental companies do not enforce this level of crib safety. Cribs both in the home, and provided by rental companies, are often made from press-boards and varnished with harmful chemicals, called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), such as formaldehyde. Many manufactured and pressed wood cribs also contain harmful chemicals, glues and resins.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, these chemicals have developmental repercussions. Asthma, immune dysfunction, cancer and infertility are just a few of the long-term consequences of VOCs for exposed children.
Family Rentals only carries a full selection of natural wood cribs. High quality, CPSC compliant natural wood cribs rentals are available in a beautiful, natural finish and cherry wood. All crib rentals are top-of-the-line in safety. Each crib comes with a comfortable innerspring coil mattress, sheet, mattress pad, and a breathable mesh bumper if needed. The mattress, wet-proof and anti-microbial, meets the latest in Federal fire standards. Family rentals sanitizes all cribs and mattresses for the convenience of visiting families.
“Family Rentals is proud to offer 10% off to all vacationers needing a crib this spring,” said Mike Merlo. “Family Rentals is a family brand, and our coupon is an incentive for our customers to keep their little ones safe when visiting sunny South Florida.”
