What Products to Use to Disinfect Your Upholstered Surfaces?

I visited the Kaemark Showroom in Giddings, Tx and I saw the floor mount bases on display. I immediately was drawn to them and knew it was what I wanted, though I didn't even know how they would work. After 4 months in my new space I can truly review that I am extremely happy with my decision to go with this base. Sweeping around them is a breeze and not to mention the customer service was exceptional.
