Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning to Eliminate COVID-19

Residential and commercial carpet cleaning in the greater St Louis area

Using a virucide as an upholstery and carpet disinfectant is part of the process of eliminating COVID-19 in our homes and businesses to avoid the spread of the infectious disease. E&B Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning serves the greater St. Louis MO area and offers services using an effective virucide cleaner to neutralize or destroy the coronavirus.

How COVID-19 Spreads

COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus. Researchers are still working to learn everything possible about the infectious disease and effective virucide cleaners to protect against it. In the meantime, it is accepted that the virus is spread from one person to another through sneezing, coughing, physical contact, and talking. In addition to frequently washing our hands in a thorough manner, effective ways to avoid the spread of COVID-19 include the use of hand sanitizers, disinfectants, and a carpet sanitizing service.

Are Carpets and Upholstery Coronavirus-Friendly?

Carpets and upholstery cloth are porous surfaces. Studies on influenza A (H1N1), show that on plastic, metal, and other non-porous surfaces, the virus remains infectious approximately twice as long as on porous surfaces. Although upholstery and carpet are not as hospitable to viruses as hard surfaces such as countertops and doorknobs, they are still dry and cool surfaces. A strategy to eliminate the spread of COVID-19 in homes and businesses should include the treatment of carpets and upholstery using a virucide.

What is a Virucide Disinfectant?

A virucide disinfectant is an agent used for sanitizing carpet. MERS and SARS are coronaviruses similar to COVID-19, and they are able to survive from 2 hours to 9 days on a surface. The length of time that the new strain of coronavirus remains infectious is not known with any certainty. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning are handled by professionals in the same manner that other coronaviruses are eliminated.
