WoolSafe Approves COVID Killing Carpet Sanitisers

WoolSafe Approves COVID Killing Carpet Sanitisers

Over the last 12 months of the pandemic, the spotlight has understandably been focussed on cleaning and hygiene to try to contain the spread of Covid-19. Unfortunately, there has been another casualty of the last year; interior textiles, carpets and rugs. 

Much harm is being done to interior textiles from sanitising and disinfecting products formulated for hard surfaces which are sprayed, wiped and fogged by untrained operators on to soft furnishings. This is creating serious issues for carpets and upholstery, such as bleaching, colour change, fibre degradation and rapid soiling, especially on those made with natural fibres. 

Steve Bakker, WoolSafe Global Marketing Director, said: “It was clear that WoolSafe needed to help both with education and specifying which sanitisers and disinfectants are suitable for use on soft furnishings.

“This is why WoolSafe Academy has hosted several Infection Control courses, supporting members with discounted training and educating hundreds of professional cleaners about the virus. Helping keep both the cleaner and customer safe while assisting commercial businesses, retail stores and hospitality to have safe operations and successful reopenings.”

WoolSafe have tested and approved several sanitisers that not only kill SARS CoV-2 (the virus that causes Covid-19) but are also safe for use on interior textiles and carpet. These products can be found in the online WoolSafe Booklet – Support and Guidance for Trading Safely During SARS CoV-2 or on the WoolSafe website. 

WoolSafe Approved sanitisers that kill SARS CoV-2 include: ENVIROSAFE virus & bacteria control from Alltec, B125 CLENSAN and D500 MICROSAN from Prochem, BarrierTech Surface Disinfectant, Benefect’s Botanical Decon 30 & Botanical Disinfectant Wipes and some of Diversey’s Oxivir range

As restrictions have been lifted on non-essential retail and some hospitality it is now more important than ever to put the correct cleaning procedures in place while selecting the best products for the job.
