CLEANLINESS & HYGIENE

At Britex Carpet Care we are committed to customer safety and the hygiene and cleanliness of our deep cleaners. In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, we have an important role to play in helping to minimise the spread of this virus in the community, while at the same time empowering Australian households to deep clean and sanitise their homes at an affordable price.

Government Agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the USA have stated that cleaning any surface is an effective way to remove bacteria and germs, lowering their numbers and the risk of spreading infection1. By deep cleaning your carpet you can help to remove the bacteria that can act as a host to a range of viruses. Infact our own research shows that using a Britex Carpet Cleaner with Britex Cleaning Solutions in a high traffic office area, reduces the bacterial load by up to 99.95%2.

WHAT MEASURES ARE IN PLACE TO PROMOTE HYGIENE?

While the COVID-19 outbreak continues, Britex Service technicians will be disinfecting machines using disinfectant spray and/or wipes as they make their store service calls. Our retail partners also have cleaning and hygiene policies in place during this time – please refer to your hire location for more information.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN HIRING A MACHINE?

BEFORE and AFTER use:

Wipe down all surfaces of the machine, including the wands, with a cleaning cloth and household detergent (eg, Britex Carpet Cleaning Solution diluted in water).

AFTER using the machine:

Empty the dirty water tank (TANK A) and rinse it out with detergent and water.

Flush out the vacuum hose with water:

Using a water tap, flush out any remaining dirty water from the vacuum hose and pack it into the machine.

Wash your hands:

After each step, don’t forget to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. Alternatively, you may choose to wear some disposable cleaning gloves during your cleaning.

If you have any questions or concerns, please visit our FAQ page or call us on 1800 904 873.

By working together, we can help to keep our community clean and healthy.
