As many know by now, the coronavirus is distributed through talking, sneezing, coughing, and physical contact. With all the media attention given to a new strain of coronavirus, more and more people are rolling up their sleeves to ensure their home and business is well sanitized, disinfected, and cleaned. The carpets and upholstery, and even the mattress should all be deep cleaned by a professional. With this in mind, we at Carpet Care 2000 would like to discuss how to help coronavirus prevention and the suggestions on how to clean the textiles in the home.
How Long Does Coronavirus Live on Surfaces?
The lifespan of the infectious viruses is contingent on the porosity of the surface, as well as the humidity and temperatures. On non-porous surfaces, including metal and plastic the virus remained infectious about twice as long, according to the findings of a 2011 study called Survival of Influenza A(H1N1) on Materials Found in Households: Implications for Infection Control, as opposed to porous surfaces, like wood, clothing, and the like. Being that the virus can be found on most surfaces, though it lasts longer on others, keeping the surfaces, including the floors, upholstery and mattress clean, dry and cool helps minimize the spread. According to a recent study concerning the coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces and their inactivation with biocidal agents. This new strain of coronavirus, like similar viruses, including SARS and MERS, can survive for anywhere from 2 hours to 9 days. The methods have not been tested for this specific virus however, though there are proven methods to prevent the spread of known coronaviruses. As it can only be based, on what coronaviruses our recommendations for dealing with the new strain of coronavirus on carpet and upholstery are limited until more information is available. To eliminate the new strain of coronaviruses is no guarantee.
Keeping all of your surfaces clean, especially during flu season, is always a good idea to protect your family.
1) On upholstery, carpets, and rugs as well as the mattress, schedule professional cleaning services and request disinfectant products.
2) Wash your hands frequently, use sanitizing liquid soap and warm water.
3) To make certain the tiny particles are trapped instead of being blown back into the air, vacuum often using a HEPA filter in your vacuum.
4) Along with other hand-traffic surfaces need to be disinfected, doorknobs, light switches, as well as countertops, walls, and floors.
