How do you folks handle carpet cleaning with your birds in the house?

I used a company called Chem-Dry to do my carpets a few months ago; they use a non-toxic solution that is supposed to be safer for pets. I moved my birds to another room in the house while the carpet-cleaning was being done and made sure the ventilation in that room was good, and waited a full day before moving them back into the carpeted room. They did fine.

When it comes to carpet-cleaning, oven cleaning, refinishing wood floors, painting, etc. (anything that may generate fumes), it's good to do that stuff in the summer months when you can open the windows for ventilation. In the winter months, you might need to board the birds elsewhere while the work is being done.
