Can You Use Zoflora On Carpet? (is it safe for rugs?)
We all know Zoflora is a great disinfectant and that it can be used to remove germs and bacteria from almost any surface, leaving behind a sweet smelling aroma. But can you use Zoflora on carpet and is it safe for use on rugs?
The short answer is yes, it is safe to use on rugs and yes, Zoflora can be used on carpets.
What Is Zoflora?
Zoflora is a concentrated disinfectant with the capability to kill 99% of germs and bacteria. It not only kills germs and bacteria, it also smells great too. In fact Zoflora is available in a number of fragrances all of which are guaranteed to remove 99% of all known germs and bacteria.
It won’t remove grease and grime as effectively as detergents and cleaners will, but it will remove germs and bacteria and leave the area smelling fresh and fragrant.
When purchasing Zoflora you might think that the bottle is comparatively small but that’s because it’s concentrated. It needs to be diluted by 40 to 1, which means putting 1 capful into 400ml of water to get the perfect bacteria killing power.
How To Use Zoflora On Carpets
Before using Zoflora on your carpets or rugs always remember to dilute by 40 to 1 and always test in an area that won’t be seen in case your carpet cannot tolerate Zoflora (which is highly unlikely, but possible). After vacuuming, add 1 capful of Zoflora to a spray bottle containing 400ml of water. Then spray the carpet to ensure it not only smells great but is free of all germs and bacteria.
Some Of The Uses For Zoflora: Rugs, Pet Beds etc.
It works great for those of us with pets, we often can’t smell our pet’s odours but visitors often can. You can spray the Zoflora/water solution all over your pets bedding and your furniture and carpets. Allow it to completely dry before letting your pet back onto the bedding.
Also if your pet has an accident indoors, once the mess has been removed and the carpet cleaned, spray some Zoflora diluted in water to remove all germs, bacteria and any lingering smells too.
Removing the odour that surrounds young babies can be difficult, because as with pet odours, when you’re living with it 24/7 smells are hard to notice. Using the same Zoflora/water mixture sprayed all over floors will remove the aforementioned smell and replace it with a sweet, fragrant aroma. Before allowing your child back onto the carpets, allow them to dry completely.
