How do I disinfect my carpet from Parvo virus?


Answer by  krugermama (12)

First of all you need to remove all feces from your yard so that you lessen the chance of animals or people tracking more into the house. Then hire a professional carpet cleaner to steam clean the carpets. Doing it yourself is ok but professionals have a higher quality machine. Lastly, use a good deoderizing spreay such as OdoBan.

Unless the carpet can be bleached, it would be very difficult to disinfect the carpet. Parvovirus is very hardy in the environment. Only bleach would completely kill the virus. Clean the carpet with a strong ammmonia, soap, vinegar solution, possibly a colorsafe bleach. Wait at least a month for the virus to die off, before introducing a new dog.

First, find a cleaning solution that specifically will kill the Parvo virus. Such cleaning shampoos will cut time and save you money in the end.

They make disinfectants for carpets at the store that you can shake onto the carpet and then vaccumm up. If you have a child though that is on the carpet a lot then you should probably rent a carpet cleaner. A deep down scrub may be what is really needed.

Parvo virus can be disinfect from any surface using steam cleaner. Steam must be forced to the surface you want to clean.

You will need to get an item that is formulated in order to remove any evidence of Parvo virus. I would recommend ammonia and or bleach which will kill any and all germs in order to avoid any future virus that will grow into a Parvo virus. With regular cleaning you should have no evidence of cleaning.

I usually disinfect my carpets once every 6 months. I have a Hoover carpet steamer; I usually use Resolve Carpet cleaning solution or whatever is cheaper.

Buy a good disinfectant from your local store and clean it various times to make sure that everything is thoroughly cleaned.
