As the holidays draw to a close, decorations come down, leftovers are eaten, and we say goodbye to family and friends, but what often remains is more than the memory of good times. In addition to the grime and mess a house full of people leave behind, consider the germs, bacteria, and even viruses that may be left lurking long after the party’s over.
According to a Yale University study, a person’s mere presence in a room can add 37 million bacteria to the air every hour. While routine cleaning and disinfecting can keep most of these germs at bay, large gatherings in the home can leave behind pathogens that can make your family sick.
“Now more than ever, homeowners are acutely aware that the cleanliness of their home is linked to the health of their family, said CarpetTech General Manager Stephanie Henderson. “Whether it’s dust and allergens in the air, germs in the carpets or bacteria and viruses brought into the home, a deep and thorough cleaning and disinfecting are important especially after having company.”
For more than two decades, Carpet Tech has been cleaning carpets and hard floors as well as offering flood and fire damage restoration services, but you may not realize that they are licensed and experienced in biohazard clean-up as well. “While your home may look like you need a hazmat team after a family gathering, our biohazard experience has led us to offer disinfecting services as well,” says Henderson.
Carpet Tech offers affordable disinfecting services both preventatively and for live cases of illness like cold, flu, and even COVID. Using EPA-approved chemicals and an electrostatic spray process, Carpet Tech can safely and effectively disinfect any size home. “Our electrostatic sprayers cover up to 3x more of the surface than wiping down by hand,” says Henderson. “What will take you hours to disinfect takes us minutes.”
Carpet Tech’s disinfecting service kills germs on all types of surfaces and is safe for pets, children, and eating areas. Henderson says thehome should be empty during the disinfecting spray application, and families may return after allowing 30 to 45 minutes for drying. No odor or residue is left behind.
Carpet Tech can add an in-home disinfecting service to any floor care or air duct cleaning appointment for just $75. “What we are offering customers is more than a germ-free environment; it’s a peace of mind, knowing that our professional equipment and processes have safely removed the threat of illness from their homes.”
