After carpet cleaning for many years I can tell you that using a botanical sanitizer to kill micro organisms is the safest most effective way to sanitize your carpet. This video explains some of the benefits of using a botanical sanitizer. At Chem-Dry of Tampa FL we use a Decon 30 as our sanitizing agent. It's extremely safe for your home and your family. It has no toxins or harsh chemicals. It's a green certified product that can be used on both hard and soft surfaces alike.
I have been using Decon 30 since I started cleaning carpets in Tampa FL and I can tell you that it's extremely effective at sanitizing carpet and upholstery. It leaves no residues behind and has a very pleasant smell. it uses the essential oils found in Thyme plants to kill micro organisms. It smells a lot like Thyme and lemons. All of my Tampa FL customers love it.
If you have any biological deposits in your carpet or upholstery Chem-Dry of Tampa can sanitize and clean it to make it whole again. It's the safest most effective sanitizer on the market.
