Family smiling on clean carpet and protected from the Coronavirus.

With new coronavirus cases being confirmed daily across the state, you are understandably concerned as a home or business owner with staying safe when faced with this new super virus now classified as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). In fact, Michigan Governor Whitmer has declared a state of emergency.

So how can you keep your home and business safe from the spread of this infectious disease? Basic hygiene, such as hand washing and covering noses and mouths when coughing or sneezing, is a good start. But there are other more in-depth and effective steps you can take to ensure your carpet is not harboring coronavirus (COVID-19).

How 1st Class Carpet Cleaning & Restoration Services Can Help

Here at 1st Class Carpet Cleaning & Restoration Services, we offer TruSteam carpet cleaning services that sanitize your carpets and kill germs, including the coronavirus. That’s because the water is heated to more than 200 degrees F, enough to kill COVID-19.

We want you to know our team is ready and able to visit your home or business to provide comprehensive carpet cleaning services. We are well stocked with plenty of gloves, masks and other safety equipment to ensure your peace of mind. Indeed, we will do whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable and safe.

Our company uses the Butler System, which is built right into our vans. The system uses the van’s own V-8 motor, providing a steady stream of power to keep the water temperature at a constant 200 degrees Fahrenheit with a consistent suction.

Because your carpet is the largest filtration system in your home, it must be cleaned regularly – not just during times of viral outbreaks. Even after you become sick, germs can linger on surfaces for up to nine days. So, anyone else who comes into your office or home can get infected. Rest assured, our cleaning solutions are completely safe for kids and pets!

Own a daycare, school or other facility where germs run rampant? We also offer anti-microbial fogging for the most efficient results.

About Coronavirus and How to Prevent its Spread

Coronaviruses (also known as COVID-19), include a family of viruses that can result in illness ranging from the common cold to more complex diseases such as SARS and MERS.

Coronaviruses can be transmitted between people and animals, with common signs of infection including:

  • Cough
  • Respiratory symptoms
  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Pneumonia, kidney failure, severe acute respiratory syndrome, and death in severe cases

There are steps you can take to protect your family, customers and employees. Prevent infection spread by washing your hands regularly, and covering your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing. Stay away from anyone who displays signs of respiratory illness such as sneezing and coughing. In fact, it’s a good idea to avoid large public places and crowds for a while, especially now that a state of emergency has been declared in Michigan.

Getting your carpets cleaned, whether you own a home or an office, is especially important in times like these. Book your appointment now!
