I contacted them a few days ago hoping to get a little clarity. I hope this helps everyone:

Thanks for reaching out. As per EPA testing guidelines unfortunately, no carpet can truly be disinfected, the most you can achieve is sanitization levels with carpets, due to their incredibly porous nature. Our Decon 30 product is EPA approved as a carpet sanitizer, following a pretty involved process. I’ve attached the EPA approved, on market, Decon 30 product label to this email and I have pasted below the carpet sanitization instructions as per the label.



TO SANITIZE CARPETS: Apply to the pre-cleaned carpet area by wand, sprayer, extractor, spin bonnet or immersion processes until saturated (spot test fibers for colorfastness before use). Scrub or agitate the carpet as needed to ensure the test substance is delivered throughout the carpet pile and backing. Allow the test substance to remain on the carpet undisturbed for a minimum of 60 minutes. Extract & allow to air-dry.



Hope that information helps. Please don’t hesitate to reach back out if you have any other follow-up questions. Have a great day!



Sincerely,

A guy at depot had a full cart of paper towels and bleach. Another guy asked if he could give him a roll just one. The dude said no and i took every last one. The other guy punched him in the face and took one anyway lol.
