How to effectively clean and disinfect household surfaces?
Follow these simple tips and build a full-proof cleaning routine in no time:
Devise a cleaning schedule
First things first, you need to determine how often you should clean and sanitize your home, create a schedule, and do your best to stick to it. This will mostly depend on the following factors:
-Whether you have elderly people living with you. They are particularly vulnerable to diseases and illnesses that can spread easily in poorly-maintained households.
-Whether you live with someone who suffers from a chronic health condition or an immune deficiency disease. They will require extra care, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
-Whether you have little children. Unlike adults, children don’t know that they shouldn’t put their fingers in their mouths and are likely to spend hours daily crawling around the house. Therefore, if your kids are under the age of 5, pay particular attention to all the areas they come in contact with.
Clean & disinfect
For maximum results, you should first clean all the high-touch surfaces (doorknobs, light switches, dining table, remote controls, toilet seat, kitchen counters, etc) to remove dirt, dust, and reduce the number of germs lurking on them. The next step should be applying a tried-and-tested disinfectant that will kill bacteria and viruses, reducing the risk of spreading infection.
Divide your cleaning routine per rooms
-In the kitchen: Start by disinfecting kitchen countertops that can harbor foodborne bacteria, as well as the germs and viruses we’ve transferred from our hands. You can use disinfecting wipes for a quick clean-up before and after every meal. When choosing the right disinfectant for this area, opt for the one that does not contain chlorine bleach and is safe to use in food preparation areas.
-In the bathroom: Bathroom surfaces are exposed to bodily fluids the most and need to be disinfected daily. Aside from focusing on hard surfaces, make sure to wash your towels and bathmats regularly. It’s best to use higher-temperature programs that can kill germs more efficiently.
-In the living room: Spray all the hard surfaces with a disinfectant, check the label to see how long it needs to work, and then use a microfiber cloth to dry the surface. When cleaning your living room, don’t forget to sanitize all the electronic devices as well. You can use 70% isopropyl alcohol to wipe them down.
-In the bedroom: Use a quality phenolic disinfectant spray that can be applied to both fabrics and hard surfaces. Besides, ensure to change your linens regularly (at least once or twice a week).
Try out green sanitizers
If you want to keep your home germ-free and at the same time give back to nature, consider using alternative eco-friendly products. Not only are they beneficial to the environment, but they are also less harmful to our health. Green cleaning supplies and disinfectants possess no, or extremely low levels of hazardous chemicals, and can be safely used in homes with little kids and pets.
