Preventing the transmission of COVID-19 should be a top consideration for home and business owners alike. If you are looking for the most effective techniques to clean and disinfect soft surfaces to protect others from coronavirus, it’s clear you care about health and safety. Keep reading for the top tips from cleaning experts and health organizations for disinfecting soft surfaces on your property.

Why Cleaning Soft Surfaces Is Crucial

Many people think about wiping down counters, tables, light switches, and other hard surfaces to prevent COVID-19 infection. However, they sometimes neglect soft or porous surfaces like rugs, carpets, sofas, and curtains. And, the only way to eliminate germs in your home or business is by ensuring you disinfect every surface that humans touch, including those soft items.

Without proper disinfecting solutions and cleaning techniques, people can transfer germs from soft surfaces to other high traffic zones like tables and faucets. And this results in a threat to the health and safety of family members, employees, or customers.

Steps for Disinfecting Soft Surfaces

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers the following recommendations for disinfection of soft surfaces:

  • First, clean the entire area with soap and water or the appropriate cleaning solutions.
  • If possible, launder items according to instructions from the manufacturer, using the warmest possible water setting. Dry items thoroughly.
  • Or, use a household disinfectant from the EPA List N: Disinfectants for Coronavirus.
  • Finally, finish by vacuuming the soft surface.

Consider Whole-Space Disinfection Equipment & Services

Unfortunately, cleaning with traditional disinfectants comes with an element of user-error. Additionally, it comes with the risk of breathing in toxic chemicals.  So, for safer, more effective results, you may want to consider investing in whole-space disinfection equipment or services. These services will give you a germ-free environment that includes every surface in your home or business.
