By now you’re probably tired of hearing about COVID-19, aren’t we all? The reality is though that it’s here to stay for awhile which means that we have to do the best we can to keep ourselves and our families safe and healthy.

We reopened for business at the end of May and have been adjusting to our new norm, which means paying extra attention in homes that we’re cleaning. In this blog we’re going to give some of our cleaning tips and reminders for COVID-19.

Clean and Disinfect High-Touch Surfaces Daily

This includes surfaces such as:

  • Door knobs
  • light switches
  • Appliance handles
  • Tables
  • Kitchen and bathroom counters
  • Toilet handles
  • Electronics (be sure to check manufacture instructions)
  • Don’t forget about your car too! Door handles, steering wheel, and gear shifter

How to Clean And disinfect

  • Wear disposable gloves and discard after each cleaning
  • If surfaces are dirty, they should be cleaned using soap and water or a detergent prior to disinfection
  • Ensure adequate ventilation in small spaces
  • Avoid mixing chemical products
  • Use products that will not only clean but will sanitize and disinfect as well
  • Use disposable towels and throw away after cleaning each area, or use reusable towels and change towels in between each area
  • Don’t forget to take out the trash daily- especially trash cans that items such as tissues are thrown away into

Clothes, Linens, And Other laundry items

  • Change clothes when entering your home after being out in public
  • Avoid wearing dirty clothes more than once
  • Wash bed sheets weekly
