Let’s just say we need to be cleaning now more than ever. Regular cleaning and disinfecting is essential to reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19. We have included a link to the EPA disinfectants and the proper wiping cloths for the job. Although there is no set guide to how often to clean, more often is better than less often. A routine cleaning with soap and water by itself is a necessary step before you disinfect dirty surfaces. Do not forget to wash before you disinfect.
Surfaces frequently exposed to others, such as light switches, door handles, and sinks faucets should be cleaned and disinfected daily, if not more often. Any heavy traffic spots should be treated more often, more frequent cleaning and disinfection may be required based on level of use.
COVID-19 cleaning can be overwhelming but especially listen up if you are in the high-risk category. It’s smart to disinfect surfaces every time you have a visitor of any kind, even if you know them really well or if they are family. If you’re high-risk or have a family member working outside the home you want to be extra precocious.
Environmental Protection Agency has a list of environmentally safe disinfectants for COVID-19. It seems bleach and alcohol is the most commonly used in the home, because they are readily available and may already be in the house.
A&A Wiping Cloth has a special COVID-19 cleaning page on our website for details on the proper wiping cloths to be used for cleaning.
With the right supplies and attitude you can help keep those COVID-19 worries to a minimum. Also we recommend to stay at home as much as possible and keep washing those hands.
