Carpeted areas give a sense of comfort. But, once you wonder if they’re clean, pathogen-free, and when was the last time you disinfected them, that feeling of wellness and comfort dissipates completely. Carpet floors, as other floor surfaces, are the ideal host to bacteria, viruses, and other germs. Vacuuming alone won’t be enough to sanitize your carpets properly. 

Clever Ways To Disinfect Your Carpets

After wondering when was the last time you had your carpets disinfected, you might get frustrated, and not knowing what to do next could happen to anyone. Feel yourself at ease and read the following recommendations on how to disinfect your carpets and rugs adequately. 

Steam cleaner

All you need to have is a steam cleaner, white vinegar, and a vacuum cleaner. White vinegar is very actionable when it comes to killing viruses and bacteria due to its acid components. 

  1. Mix water and vinegar in equal parts in a spray bottle, misting the carpets. 
  2. Let it dry completely and then run the steam cleaner over them. 
  3. Once your carpets are completely dry, you may proceed to vacuum, restoring the look of the fibers. 

Borax, baking soda, and cornmeal 

You need those ingredients plus a steam cleaner, white vinegar, and vacuum cleaner. 

  1. Mix ½ cup of baking soda, one of borax, and one of cornmeal. 
  2. Spread the mixture over your carpets, and rub it with the help of a cloth. 
  3. Let it sit overnight, and vacuum the powder off in the morning. 
  4. Repeat the previous method mentioned above, with the vinegar and steam cleaner
  5. Finally, vacuum again.
