Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is thought to be spread primarily via airborne transmission, however, the CDC still advises surface disinfection
As someone who is responsible for the Cleaning and Sanitation of commercial and residential properties, Green Mountain Carpet Cleaning is still here for you during this troubling time. Following all safe practices and CDC guidelines, we can clean your Carpet, Flooring and Furniture and even apply an EPA approved disinfectant.
3 Best Practices:
Social Distancing -
Avoid crowds, Keep your distance and stay home whenever possible.
Cleaning - Cleaning does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
Disinfection works by using chemicals to kill germs on a surfaces after cleaning, which can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
According to the World Health Organization, most viruses are made inactive at temperatures between 140 and 149 degrees, while the CDC says anything above 167 degrees Fahrenheit kills most viruses. In either case Green Mountain Carpet Cleaning and our new Commercial Grade Hot Water Extraction system with temperature adjustable up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit has the job covered. With water hot enough to kill pathogens it comes in contact with and super high vacuum to suck away dirt and germs.
We can apply to your Carpet and Furniture an E.P.A. approved disinfectant which has proven to be effective deactivating viruses such as influenza, including H1N1 (Swine Flu), avian influenza (Bird Flu), HIV-1 (AIDS) and many others.
This disinfectant has proven to be very effective on human coronavirus and expected to work effectively on this strain as well, however it is important to note, no disinfectants, have been tested specifically on COVID-19 yet.
