Parvo virus remains active in the environment for a long time. This can be for a year or more.
The best way to disinfect the areas inside your home is to use a diluted bleach solution. This kills parvo on hard surfaces. There is no easy way to disinfect carpet or your yard against this virus. It is resistant to many disinfectants and bleach can cause damage to your yard and carpet.
