As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread throughout the United States, you might be wondering if your home is clean to its full extent to keep you and your family healthy.
Well, Diamond Maids wants to share our top 5 ways to help ensure that your home is being disinfected.
1. Cleaning First, Disinfecting Second
To disinfect the surface, you need to first clean the surface with soap and water.
The reason why this is important is that when there’s grime and grease on the surface, the disinfect can’t be effective.
After you clean the area, you can move onto the next step, and that’s disinfecting.
2. Disinfecting Done Right
When someone is sick in your home, you often wipe high-touched surfaces down like doorknobs, tables, remotes, toilets, sinks, etc.
However, the CDC is recommending that you do this daily during the coronavirus outbreak, even if no one in your home is sick.
3. Follow The Disinfectant Instructions
You’ll want to make sure that you follow the instructions on the back of your disinfectant to help ensure it has the allotted time to kill any germs.
An example is that bleach says to leave the disinfectant on for 10 minutes before wiping the surface down.
Also, you want to make sure that your disinfectant is approved to kill the coronavirus.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a list of disinfectants that they believe are effective at killing the coronavirus (COVID-19).
4. Don’t Mix Cleaning Products
By mixing cleaning products, it can produce poisonous gas.
Make sure that you stick to the products that are on the EPA list, and that you’ve used before.
