Help Protect Yourself While Protecting Others
With the pandemic everyone across the globe is currently experiencing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) many are wondering what actions they can take to protect themselves and others from the spread of this virus. Many ask and many don’t think to ask about carpet cleaning. Is carpet cleaning a measure that can be taken to prevent or remove germs associated with Coronavirus? The simple answer is, yes!
How carpet cleaning helps protect during Coronavirus Pandemic
Many don’t think about what is living in their carpets. Many don’t think they need carpet cleaning until stains are visible and many think carpet cleaning is good for only removing stains. Truth is that yes, carpet cleaning (steam cleaning) can help remove stains but it does much more than that. Just like all the other surfaces you worry about cleaning regularly in your life carpet is exposed to germs, bacteria, virus, fungi, allergens and more. Just because you can’t see it with the naked eye doesn’t mean it’s not there. Steam cleaning carpet is essential to maintaining a clean and sanitary living space for you and your family. Steam cleaning carpet along with the right chemicals and cleaning solutions is the perfect combination to combat COVID-19.
What Beyer Carpet Cleaning is doing to protect others
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) currently does not have a vaccine or a cure for the Coronavirus. The CDC states that the novel coronavirus can remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Center for Disease Control and Prevention also states that cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is the best practice for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral illnesses in households and businesses. The CDC states that for “soft (porus) surfaces such as carpeted floor, rugs, and drapes, remove visible contamination if present and clean with appropriate cleaners”. Along with cleaning and sanitizing your hands and hard surfaces carpet cleaning is recommended.
