As Melbourne begins to cool down and the spreading of viruses is on the rise, we should all start thinking about ways in which we can help stop the spread of viruses in the home.  By partaking in the recommended steps of washing your hands frequently and keeping surfaces clean, there is one major activity that is quite often left out; deep carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning. 

Deep Carpet Cleaning

As much as we’d like to think that our carpets are clean from having gone over them with a vacuum cleaner, it’s not necessarily the truth.  You see, when you vacuum your carpets (no matter how often), a lot of the germs and bacteria that help to spread viruses can remain trapped within your carpet fibres.  In order to reduce the chances of viruses spreading throughout your home, you should highly consider giving your carpets a deep steam clean.  

At Wizard Carpet, Tile, and Grout Cleaning Melbourne, our team of cleaners are equipped with the necessary equipment and products to give your carpets the throughout clean-out that they deserve.  Not only will it leave your carpets looking and feeling great, it’ll also clean in between your carpet fibres, thus removing any bacteria that is stubbornly stuck on. 

Upholstery Cleaning

The same method of using hot water extraction to provide a deep clean to your carpets is also used for your upholstery – this can be anything from mattresses, chairs, couches and sofas. With hot water extraction, extremely hot water is ejected on to the surface and then immediately sucked back up, which provides a more thorough clean than any cloth, vacuum or DIY method.

How are germs spread throughout the home?

Without realising it, germs have a particularly easy way of making their way around your home. You could be leaning against a pole on public transport and then sit down on your couch when you get home – from an action which is completely innocuous, you can simply spread these germs from surface to surface.  For this reason, it’s extremely important to stay on top of your regular steam cleans in the home. 

If you would like to get ahead of spreading viruses and bacteria throughout your home, feel free to book a professional steam clean with our Melbourne-based cleaners.  You can either call us on 03 9323 1474 or leave an enquiry HERE
