We quote directly from the National Carpet Cleaners Association the following statement.  We call it our duty for Safeguarding the reputation of the carpet cleaning industry and protecting our customers. “There are quite a few companies claiming to be able to kill the Coronavirus COVID 19.  Please note this is serious misinformation.  It is an untrue and a dangerous statement to make.

Covid-19 is an illness caused by SARS-CoV-2, which is a Coronavirus. Coronaviruses have been around for a long time and belong to a group known as ‘enveloped viruses’. It is worth noting that you cannot cure or kill Covid-19, you can destroy the Coronavirus in the environment, but you cannot cure the illness once inside the human body.
(despite some comments that have made public press, you cannot put disinfectants inside the human body, this would be incredibly dangerous!)

Please do not be mislead by claims that cannot be backed up scientifically.

Can professional cleaning companies help?

Whether it’s an office, a hotel, a Doctors surgery, Bed and Breakfast, a waiting room, a call centre or indeed a staff canteen; the need for a deep sanitising and disinfectant cleaning has never been more important as it is as of right now.
A professional company will however ensure that they are personally maintaining the correct hygiene practices to the highest standards by regularly disinfecting equipment and wearing personal protection equipment to reduce the likelihood of spreading the virus. Homes and business can be cleaned using specialist solutions and equipment which will assist in the fight against COVID-19

Like most enveloped viruses, outside of the human body they are very weak and easily destroyed with hot water and disinfectant (hence all the media advice to wash your hands!)  Needless to say, you cannot kill viruses so easily once they are inside the human body, so never, ever consume a disinfectant!

There are various agents that are effective against enveloped viruses, the most well known version is probably alcohol, such as in hand sanitisers, it works very quickly but it evaporates so how long it will last is limited.

One of the best cleaning solutions is referred to as “QATs” (or Quaternary ammonium compounds) which take longer to work but provide longer lasting protection.  They are best applied and left on the surface in order to (in effect) kill the virus.  They disrupt the envelope membrane, which exposes the nucleocapsid protein, affecting it‘s ability to infect subsequent cells.

The great thing about QAT’s is that you can use them on pretty much all surfaces – any wet cleanable fabrics and hard surfaces – so you can pre-spray carpets and upholstery, apply it by sprayer to floors, door handles, work surfaces, you can even use a fogging machine to sanitise an entire room.  It‘s actually best applied by misting, not by cloth (cloths are awful cross contaminants!)

So the long and the short of it is that we use these QATs in our solutions which is then applied to your soft furnishings.  This is a  dual action Pre-cleaner and Sanitiser that will safely clean and protect the home or business by removing harmful bacteria, viruses and odours.  It is an Anti-Microbial, Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Viral and Anti-Fungal Sanitising Pre-Cleaner.
