Safe Economical Textile Cleaning And Sanitizing

Launder, in the sense of cleaning fabric, is to wash, or wash and iron. Sanitizing is distinctly different from laundering and cleaning. Sanitize, a word with Latin origin, means “health”. Sanitizer is a substance or fluid designed to kill germs (microbes) on skin and objects. Use of the word “sanitizer” in the English language originated in the mid-1900s and is a household term in today’s health-conscious environment.

In homes and high-trafficked areas such as healthcare facilities, manufacturing facilities, schools, offices, hotels, restaurants, and public transportation that serve the public, sanitizing is a priority. Sanitizing goes far beyond countertops or surfaces and includes furniture and textiles. Questions that come to mind are, “How often should upholstered furniture be sanitized and what is the best method?”

 

FREQUENCY OF UPHOLSTERY CLEANING

Vacuuming will not sanitize spaces or furniture. Deep cleaning is recommended to remove dirt, dander, and debris that can trap microbes and affect one’s wellbeing. A report by home care professionals recommends the cleaning (not sanitizing) of furniture “as often as needed”, or:

  • For singles and couples with no children or pets: 1-2 times per year.
  • With children: 3-4 times per year.
  • With pets: 3-4 times per year. Also consider using washable slipcovers.
  • With pets and children: 4-5 times per year.
  • Slipcover washing at least once a month in high traffic homes.
  • Stains and deeply embedded grime require professional service.

For cleaning and sanitizing upholstered furniture, steam cleaning comes to mind. Steam cleaning involves heating water to release dirt, debris. This process heats water to steam at 175 – 212 degrees Fahrenheit. However, steam is only effective on microbes 97% of the time if this process is adhered to. Steam cleaning is a costly time-consuming process. Too much heat or too much steam can ruin surfaces like leather and common household cleaners and sanitizers can destroy textiles beyond repair.

To protect personal and public property, it is prudent to know what can create textile damage.

TEXTILE CARE

Common items that can damage textiles range from cosmetics to hair care products and specific household cleaners and sanitizers including:

  • Acid containing products including cosmetics and acidic hand sanitizer
  • Alkaline products including disinfectants
  • Bleach-based products such as household cleaning and sanitizing products, mildew removers
  • Alcohol-based products including rubbing alcohol, alcohol-based hand sanitizers
  • Steam held too close or at an excessive temperature

In contrast to potential textile hazards, an environmentally safe all-purpose cleaning and sanitizing breakthrough technology is now safely being used to revolutionize the sanitizing industry as well as personal and public spaces.

 

ALL-IN-ONE TEXTILE CLEANING & SANITIZING

QAC is an acronym for quaternary ammonium compound. QAC is alcohol-free and has been used in sanitizing for nearly 100-years. GlanHealth™ technology delivers QAC combined with an industry-leading electro-chemistry mode of action for all textiles and surfaces to be simultaneously cleaned, sanitized, and protected.

GlanHealth’s alcohol-free, revolutionary mode of action attracts microbes, is uniquely designed to disrupt cell membranes based on cell polarity, creates microbe cell explosion and extermination with maximum efficiency. This unique sanitizing mode of action creates a barrier that protects furniture, fabric, leather, and upholstery from microbes.

Quickly, safely, and affordably protect spaces and surfaces for extended periods of time with GlanHealth’s sanitizing products that are environmentally safe, extremely cost-effective, and time-saving. Transforming spaces occurs in minutes and provides persistent protection lasting for up to 28-days with just one application.

ECONOMICS OF SANITIZING UPHOLSTERY

One approach to upholstery maintenance is steam cleaning. However, steam cleaning is not as effective with its mode of action, is costly, time-consuming, and with too much heat can create irreparable damage to textiles.

One report on the economics of steam cleaning explains, “Steam cleaning a couch costs $100 to $200 for most professionals. You can buy your own machine for $150 to $500 or rent one for $40 to $60 for a day.”

In contrast to the cost of steam cleaning one couch, GlanHealth’s new three-phased all-purpose innovation in cleaning and sanitizing textiles, surface and spaces costs 180% less than an average cleaning service and 64% less than a machine rental for one day.
