How Should You Clean and Disinfect Your Home Against COVID 19

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, it has become mandatory that you should disinfect your home regularly. Disinfecting the home is necessary in order to keep yourself and your family members safe from infection. Since coronavirus disease is a communicable disease (the disease which can transfer from one person to another person), all the Government health agencies have recommended the proper cleaning and disinfection of homes at least once per day.

In a recent study, it was found that the novel coronavirus can remain in the air for a maximum of 3 hours and can live on surfaces from 24 hours to up to 3 days. This blog will help you with cleaning and disinfecting your home properly.

Cleaning Vs Disinfecting

Most of the people think that cleaning and disinfecting both are the same processes. But there is a huge difference in them. Cleaning means making the surfaces look clean only by removing dirt and dust with the help of a vacuum cleaner or by washing the surfaces with soap water. Disinfection, on the other hand, is the process to kill all the bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms.

Which Products Can Kill Coronavirus?

Not all types of cleaning products are effective against all types of germs, especially, if we talk about COVID 19, you should know exactly which products can kill coronavirus completely. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has provided the list of all disinfectants that are effective against coronavirus. Some of these products might be available at your home. We are listing here some of these products. If you want the complete list of these products, you can visit the EPA website.

  • Disinfecting wipes, including Clorox, Lysol or store brand wipes
  • Disinfectant sprays, such as Purell, Clorox or Lysol
  • Isopropyl alcohol
  • Hydrogen peroxide

According to the EPA, if we let these products sit on the surfaces for 10 minutes, they will kill up to 99.9% of germs. For people who do not have these products at their home and also are unable to purchase them, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) offers instructions about how to create effective disinfectant at home. However, these disinfectants can be purchased from any of the disinfectants manufacturers and suppliers at reasonable prices. We are also one of the well-known cleaning products and disinfectants manufacturers and suppliers.

Disinfecting Against COVID-19

You need not disinfect your entire house daily, instead, you should focus on the areas in your home that are hot spots for germs. The most important things which you should clean and disinfect every day are listed below:

  • Cupboard and drawer knobs/pulls
  • Faucets
  • Kitchen and bathroom counters
  • Toilets, especially the seat and handle
  • Refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and microwave handles
  • Remote controls and game controllers
  • Cell phones, tablets and other mobile devices
  • Computer keyboards and mice
  • Door knobs/handles
  • Table surfaces
  • Staircase railings
  • Light switches/switch plates

It is recommended that disinfection and cleaning should be done by wearing PPE equipment like face masks, hand gloves, etc. and after the completion of cleaning and disinfection, these PPE equipment should be disposed of properly.
