Carpet Disinfecting: Cleaning Your Carpet After a Pandemic

You know how to disinfect the hard surfaces in your home, but do you know how to disinfect your carpet if it has been exposed to coronavirus? If someone in your home or business has COVID-19, the virus may still pose a risk if your carpet is not disinfected. Superior Cleaning Solutions has the professional service and experience to clean your carpet after the pandemic.

Carpet Cleaning After a Pandemic

Your carpet can be a breeding ground for viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms. When someone walks across the carpet, these particles can become airborne and be breathed in by everyone in the room. Dangerous viruses can still be active in your carpet for hours and even days after the droplets settle from a cough or sneeze. It is important that you choose a professional and well-prepared cleaning service to disinfect carpeted surfaces that have been in contact with a COVID-19 infected patient.

Viruses and Bacteria in Your Carpet

Many viruses and microorganisms can stay on rugs, drapes, and carpets for quite some time. Unlike non-porous surfaces, you cannot simply wipe the carpet down with cleaner, so it is difficult to ensure the surface is virus-free. As a precaution, if an infected person has been in contact with your carpeting the CDC recommends disinfecting “soft surfaces” like carpets, rugs, and drapes using an EPA certified disinfectant if the surface cannot be laundered in warm water.

The following viruses and bacteria are known to live in carpeting:

  • Norovirus
  • Salmonella
  • E. Coli
  • Staphylococcus
  • Campylobacter

Disinfecting Your Quarantine Space or Reopening Your Business?

The nature of the current coronavirus pandemic requires immediate and thorough action to protect your family and guests after an in-home quarantine or if you plan to reopen a business. Traditional cleaning of your carpet can still leave your family and guests at risk of infection. At Superior Cleaning Solutions, we are well-prepared to disinfect carpeted surfaces without exposing you to the coronavirus.
