Carpet Cleaning Reduces The Spread of Infectious Disease

Updated: Nov 11, 2020


Hot Water Extraction Kills Germs The first action to stopping the spread of an infectious disease is to kill all germs in the contaminated area. Using hot water extraction cleaning is the first step in killing germs.  Hot water extraction has these benefits:

  • Limits Allergens: Everything from dust to dog dander can settle in your carpet and start to irritate your allergies.

  • Kills Mold and Other Bacteria: Mold, bacteria, fungus, and dust mites can all live in your carpet.

  • Endorsed by the IICRC: The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is the cleaning industry service standard for certifying cleaning personnel, and companies with the highest standards.

  • Eco-Friendly: Hot water extraction uses nothing more than water and heat, making it a remarkably eco-friendly method.


EPA Approved Disinfectants Makes Hot Water Extraction Cleaning Highly Effective


Maintaining a clean and sanitary surrounding is essential for preventing infectious disease from spreading. Using an EPA approved disinfectant while extracting your carpets can kill 99.99% of germs on a surface.



CDC Recommends Sanitizing all Surfaces CDC recommends cleaning and sanitizing carpets. “Current evidence suggests that novel coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings… For soft (porous) surfaces such as carpeted floor, rugs, and drapes, remove visible contamination if present and clean with appropriate cleaners.”

The process The process to eliminating germs, bacteria and infectious disease from the carpet fibers is as follows:



  1. Pre-spray all carpeted with an EPA approved cleaner.

  2. Thoroughly brush in the cleaner working it deep into the carpet fibers by using a floor machine or carpet brush.

  3. Hot Water extract the carpet with a truck mounted cleaning system using a neutral pH rinsing solution at a temperature between 180-200 degrees.

  4. Dry the carpet with a carpet dryer or fans to speed up the dry time



This method of cleaning removes germs and bacteria along with dirt and stains from the carpet fibers through the cleaning solution and rinsing process, which flushes the carpet fibers thoroughly. The dirty solution is pulled through a vacuum hose and deposited into a receiving tank in the companies' van.


Other Items Hot Water Extraction Cleans

1. Upholstery such as sofas, sectionals, loveseats, chairs, ottomans cleaned

2. Mattresses

3. Kitchen and bathroom floor tiles


Please Note: Disinfectant & Disinfecting refers to using chemicals to kill germs. This process does not ensure the removal of infectious disease but by killing germs associated with bacteria, virus, and fungi can  lower the risk of spreading infection.
