Sanitizing Your House and Office: Cleaning Tips to Stop the Spread of the Virus

Published May 11th, 2020 by Express Cleaning Facility Services

So far, hundreds of thousands of people have fallen victim to the novel coronavirus disease.

Sanitizing your house and business premises is your first line of defense against this modern-day pandemic. It can help to ensure the safety of your family and clients as well as alleviate the stress associated with COVID-19.

Don't become a statistic. Learn about the best way to sterilize your surroundings against viruses right now.

Are You Sanitizing Your House or Business Properly?

No matter how dedicated you are to the stay-at-home cause, you'll have to leave home sooner or later to stock up on supplies, go to work, or get medicine.

What follows is usually a justified feeling of dread that you may somehow have brought the coronavirus with you on your return.

Some of the ways to alleviate these fears include wearing a mask, washing your hands, and sanitizing your groceries and clothing. Yet, most of us can't help reaching for a disinfectant solution and wiping down everything we've touched, too.

It's a good idea to practice these precautions daily, even when you don't go out. Cleaning and disinfecting all the high-touch surfaces in your house, such as counters and door handles, is a good place to start.

Cleaning Tips for Sanitizing Your Surroundings

One of the major concerns for people around the world is a distinct lack of sanitizing products at the moment. Fortunately, you can also use any of the following EPA-recommended disinfectants instead.

You can also make an effective homemade disinfectant solution. Simply mix four teaspoons of household bleach and one quart of water in a spray bottle.

Shake the mixture vigorously, and then spray it on the surface you want to treat. Leave the mixture to do its magic for ten minutes before wiping it away with a wet cloth. 

Never mix bleach with any other cleaning product, and be sure to wear gloves and open your windows while using it. 

Getting Coronavirus off Your Clothes

Your washing machine and regular laundry soap are sufficient to kill any viruses lurking on your clothing. To be safe, dry your clothes at a slightly higher temperature than normal. 

It's important to disinfect anything your clothes have come into contact with, too. This includes your laundry basket and any surfaces they've rested on.

Concerns With Self-Sanitizing

When you DIY disinfecting your home, there's always the worry that you're not doing enough.

What if your homemade disinfectant cleaner doesn't work? Or what if bleach disinfectant isn't the  best way to sterilize your living areas, office, or business  premises? What if you missed a spot, or the virus is lurking somewhere you haven't thought of yet?

All these uncertainties are enough motivation to hire a professional cleaning service to thoroughly disinfect your home or business.
