New Year, Same Virus – Covid Cleaning in 2021

Even with news of increased production of COVID-19 vaccinations in the new year, coronavirus infections are surging all across the country. In addition to the surge in numbers there are new strains of the virus being found in cities and countries around the globe. It is more important than ever to stay diligent and make sure your home is clean, sanitized, disinfected and above all else a healthy place for your family. Following simple steps can help ensure that your new year remains happy and healthy for your family.

 

Clean Your surfaces

The United States Center for Disease Control recommends that we start by first cleaning our household surfaces using soap and water. Cleaning these surfaces with soap and water ensures that we remove dirt and some germs and prep the area for sanitization and disinfecting. Don’t forget to wear disposable gloves to clean and disinfect and discard after use or use reusable gloves that are dedicated only for cleaning and disinfecting. Always wash your hands after removing your gloves.

 

It’s not enough to clean.

As we have said in other post, it is simply not enough to just clean your home. There is a difference between cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing. While cleaning your home will keep you from being embarrassed on zoom calls for work or school, truly sanitizing and disinfecting will help kill pathogens like COVID-19. It is essential to not only clean but to sanitize and disinfect all of the surfaces of your home and other items you might touch frequently like your keys, wallet or your laptop. In order to make sure you are disinfecting and sanitizing your surfaces affectively review the tips below:

Make sure your cleaning product actually protects against COVID-19. Visit the environmental protection agency or EPA website to view a list of household disinfectants that aid in the killing of the COVID-19 virus.

It is very important to follow the instructions on the label of your household disinfectant to ensure safe and effective use of the product. Many products require keeping the surface wet with the disinfectant for a period of time before wiping away. Removing the disinfectant before it is time could lead to a loss of effectiveness. This also where you will find information on using these chemicals safely. Some additional safety considerations highlighted by the CDC include:

  • Wearing protective gear like gloves and goggles
  • Ensuring adequate ventilation
  • Only using the amount specified
  • Store out of reach of pets or children
  • DO NOT mix products or chemicals
  • DO NOT ingest any products or introduce to your skin or the skin of any animals.

Cleaning and disinfecting soft surfaces such as carpet, rugs, and drapes or especially porous surfaces like some stone could require specialty products or tools. Contact a PRO at COIT Cleaning and Restoration to learn how one of our specialists can help while following our COVID guidelines.
