Cleaning and disinfecting your home on a regular basis is essential for avoiding illness and preventing the spread of disease within your household. This is especially critical during the COVID-19 pandemic. You might be wondering how to disinfect your home or if you’re doing enough to keep you and your family safe.
First and foremost, whatever you do to clean and disinfect your house is beneficial. If you are unable to disinfect due to a shortage of commercially available chemicals, washing with soap and water can still assist to halt the spread of disease by eliminating viruses and other germs from surfaces. Second, you are not required to go it alone.
In addition, we’ve compiled a list of do-it-yourself cleaning suggestions for your house.
Because they are the most prone to contain viruses, these objects, and surfaces in your home require the greatest attention. These should be disinfected at least once a day. Because every property is unique, the regions that receive the greatest touch may differ.
There is a distinction to be made between cleaning and disinfecting. The latter entails eliminating disease-causing microorganisms, such as the new coronavirus. We do this using two techniques. One is a chemical approach of electrostatic spraying with a harmless disinfectant that has been approved by the EPA for use on viruses. The other is a physical UV light disinfection procedure. Both are safe and effective methods of altering the DNA within each individual virus or disease, preventing it from infecting human cells or reproducing itself.
Cleaning, on the other side, does not include the elimination of germs. It simply refers to eliminating them off the surface. Reducing the number of viruses and other germs on a surface or object reduces the chance of infection. Cleaning also eliminates surface contaminants such as dust and stains. It is possible to do so using soap and water or other cleaning agents that do not disinfect.
Areas and items that are rarely used require just basic cleaning and occasional disinfecting. High-touch areas, on the other hand, require regular disinfection whenever feasible, followed by cleaning whenever they become noticeably filthy.
Lemon juice and vinegar, for example, are widely promoted as do-it-yourself household disinfectants. While they do have some antibacterial characteristics, no scientific research has been conducted to assess their efficacy against the new coronavirus. As a result, to fully safeguard your family, use a disinfectant that has been tested and certified by the Environmental Protection Agency for use on the coronavirus whenever feasible.
Another useful tool you can use is the disinfectant sticks from Dr. Clo in Malaysia. You can place them anywhere in the house and they’ll sterilize the air in your home. Keep in mind that you don’t have to give up safety for strength. The disinfectant we utilize in our electrostatic spraying technique is non-hazardous, non-flammable, and non-toxic, yet it is still EPA-approved for efficacy.
