Sanitizing Your Carpet:
With Fall in the air and Winter just around the corner many people are asking us about 'sanitizing carpets'. I often ask them what exactly do they mean and I often get a variety of answers. First to 'sanitize' means to eliminate germs or to make germ free. With Fall and Winter comes the cold and flu season so sanitizing your carpets makes perfectly good sense. After all the carpeting in your home acts like a giant air filter trapping dirt, dust, dust mites, dander, bacteria, etc. According to research there is at least 2000 bacteria particles per square inch of carpet in your home. Can you say 'Yuck'!
Unlike our competitors who typically rely ONLY on the hot water to sanitize your carpets we use a (4) Step process to sanitize the carpets in your home or place of business:
STEP 1: The first thing we do is pre-vacuum your entire carpet using a HEPA filtration system. This 'hospital grade' vacuum system will trap even the smallest of particles such as dust mites, dust mite feces, and pet dander. I am always amazed by how much 'stuff' we are able to remove from the carpets before we ever apply any chemicals or water.
STEP 2: We treat the entire carpet with a special blend of sodium borate and d-limoline. Sodium Borate is an all natural disinfectant and d-limoline is a power antioxidant. This powerful 1-2 punch will kill bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
STEP 3: We typically clean the carpet with water temperatures above 210 degrees. If you recall from your high school science bacteria will die when it is exposed to temperatures greater than 140 degrees. Don't worry your carpets love heat.
STEP 4: Because our technology is the latest we can typically extract 25% MORE water than our competitors. This means we also are removing more Yuck as well. As an added feature we blow dry the carpets to prevent mold and mildew.
Finally let me recommend that you also regularly change your return air filter in your home. These filters are designed to trap all kinds of Yuck. They too help keep your home healthy!
