Breathe Easy with ComfoClean’s Carpet Disinfecting Service
Because the everyday use of your carpet leads not only to normal wear and tear, but also to the accumulation of microscopic bacteria and fungi, disinfecting your carpets on a regular basis can help keep odors away. To accomplish this, ComfoClean uses the EPA-approved Microban X-590 Clean Carpet Sanitizer, which is a water-based bactericide, fungicide, deodorant, and insecticide with tracer that specializes in the neutralization, reduction, and control of bacteria and fungi—for a whole year.
How Does Microban Work?
The Microban X-590 system works by applying anionic biocides—electrically charged chemicals that control the growth of organic material—into your carpets, which kills any bacterial and fungal growth, while also neutralizing any unpleasant odors. As both a disinfectant and an insecticide, Microban can kill harmful bacteria as a result of sewage or toilet overflows, which can be especially useful for restoration professionals, but it also kills roaches, lice, fleas, ants, beetles, and bedbugs and their larvae, which can be effective for communal living facilities, such as college dorms, nursing facilities, hotels, and more. In addition, due to the specialized procedure with which Microban is applied, your carpet fibers will be softer and more resistant to wear.
Microban was originally FDA approved for cleaning businesses that experience heavy traffic, or where cleanliness was paramount, such as daycare, beauty and spa institutions, and healthcare facilities. Today however, the system can provide these same benefits for your home.
Why Should I Use Microban to Clean My Carpets?
The Microban Clean Carpet Sanitizing works by:
- Cleaning, sanitizing, and restoring pre-owned carpets to a like-new state.
- Providing peace of mind that you and your loved ones are enjoying clean, safe carpets.
- Eliminating odors and increasing freshness.
On top of this, Microban X-590’s formula includes a fluorescent tracer, which is in compliance with local regulations for mattress treatment.
The Link Between Carpet Cleaning, Pet Fleas and Head Lice
Did you know that head lice (Pediculus humanus capitis) can live in your carpeting for up to 48 hours without food? Because of this, if you or your children, or your pets have recently been exposed to one of the 6-12 million individuals infected with head lice each year, it’s important to clean not just your clothes, but your home as well. Otherwise, you may find yourself in a perpetual cycle of lice infestation.
The good news is that ComfoClean uses a specialized disinfectant named Microban X-590 to rid your home of lice and pet fleas, in addition to dust mites, bed bugs, and many other types of insects. A few of Microban X-590’s many benefits include:
- Dries in only 15-20 minutes
- Contains no dyes or perfumes
- Also kills a wide variety of bacteria, germs, and fungi
To boost the disinfecting power of Microban X-590, ComfoClean recommends that you or your child also consult a physician (and/or take you family pets to the veterinarian) to remove the head lice as efficiently as possible.
Are Bed Bugs Biting?
Similar to head lice, bed bugs can be a nasty pest if they set up shop in your home, and can cause red, itchy, and painful skin reactions as a result of their bites.
Bed bugs are most commonly found near beds, as they tend to feed at night while you’re sleeping, which means that a professional mattress cleaning from ComfoClean can help alleviate the problem. While bed bugs have grown increasingly resistant to pesticides, Microbian X-590 has been shown to be very effective for killing these tiny parasites, just as much as the high-temperature steam used during ComfoClean’s mattress cleaning process.
But the truth is that bed bugs are also found in other areas where humans tend to congregate, such as couches, chairs, and other upholstered furniture. As a result, after ComfoClean has addressed bed bugs in and around your mattresses, it’s always a good idea to pay close attention to upholstery cleaning as well.
Are Your Allergies Caused by Dust Mites?
As unsettling as it may be, excrement from microscopic dust mites is one of the leading causes of in-home allergic reactions, which include asthma, rhinitis, eczema, and a wide variety of other conditions. It’s thought that 40% of the population is affected by allergic reactions at one time or another, though this figure is agreed to be on the rise.
Unfortunately, regardless of how clean your Eastside home may be, dust mites are found in every household, and are especially concentrated in areas such as carpeting, mattresses and bedding, and deep within your furnishing’s upholstery. The good news is that ComfoClean can provide you with a solution.
Dust Mite Anti-Allergen
Dust mite anti-allergens work by physically changing the chemical structure of particles that would normally cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. In essence, these anti-allergens render them completely harmless, which is accomplished by blocking the primary protein that signals your body to “defend” itself against these allergens.
