Killing, Cleaning & Disinfecting in Parvo Virus & Removing Pet Stains in Orange, CA; How to Get Parvo Out of Carpet

For anyone who is currently going through the crisis of having your beloved canine undergoing the effects of the Parvo Virus, this is a stressful time. The symptoms of Parvo are loss of appetite, lethargy, vomiting, and diarrhea. Those unfortunate symptoms can leave a mess all over your home. Leading Carpet Cleaning will help your get rid of those stains and disinfect.

What Happen When Your Puppies or Dogs Have Parvo

Once your dog is diagnosed with Parvo, it will likely require hospitalization for several days. This can be a life threatening virus that is extremely contagious. Researchers know that the Parvo virus is spread through an infected canine’s feces, and some believe their saliva too. If you dog recovers, you will have to clean and disinfect your entire home and yard or your dog will get this terrible virus again. The soiled area should be your main point of focus. However wherever the dog even touched must also be disinfected. For hard surface areas and even the yards you can use bleach. You can use diluted bleach and water about 1 to 10 dilution. However if the dog vomited or had diarrhea on the carpets, spraying bleach isn’t an option. Cleaning diarrhea from carpet can be difficult as the virus soaks deep into the carpet fibers. Another problem when battling diarrhea stains from the Parvo virus is that their may be blood mixed in with the diarrhea.

Parvo Carpet Cleaning & Disinfecting Protocol

Cleaning the stains isn’t just for your home aesthetics. It’s also to remove the virus so your recovered canine doesn’t get this deadly virus again or any other canine if present. To begin we suggest you use a steamer cleaner to disinfect the carpets. With the steamer, use straight hot water and clean the entire carpeted area. This will help you get much of the stain (diarrhea and vomit) from off the surface of the carpet. Next spray a pet stain remover directly on the affected areas. Sometimes you may not have much luck with typical commercial grade pet stain removers. This is due to the blood mixed in with the diarrhea. You may want to try to use a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. This lifts the blood quite effectively. After you have applied the stain remover of choice, use the steamer with just hot water again to clean the stain. After the stains have been dealt with, it is time to disinfect. If available fill a pressure sprayer with a pet-safe disinfectant labeled as approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to kill parvovirus. Follow the disinfectant manufacturer’s instructions to determine the proper amount of disinfectant to use. Keep in mind, some disinfectants needs to be diluted with water. Spray the wet carpet thoroughly with the disinfectant. Making sure to thoroughly saturate the carpet through to the padding. Leave the disinfectant on the carpet for a minimum of 10 minutes or otherwise directed. Next, fill the steamer with the disinfectant. Depending on the brand, it may need to be diluted or undiluted. See the directions to know which. Then steam clean your carpets. Make sure to go over the entire area to make sure the entire virus has been killed. For extra thoroughness you can rewash carpets with just hot water.
