During this COVID- 19 pandemic, we are recommended to practice good personal hygiene and regularly clean and disinfect your home to stay safe and avoid spreading the virus. Experts suggest that disinfecting is better than cleaning your home to keep the virus at bay.
While cleaning entails the regular tasks of dusting and vacuuming, disinfecting means killing the pathogens. You can clean your home at regular intervals. However, it is advisable to disinfect the frequently touched surfaces and objects every few hours.
Here are a few tips that will help you keep your home clean and disinfected:
Identify and Clean the Frequently Touched Surfaces
It has been found that the coronavirus can stay on surfaces for up to two or three days. Make sure to disinfect your doorknobs, faucets, tables, entryway, living room furniture, toilets, light switches, etc. You can start the process by cleaning the surface and use a disinfectant spray or alcohol wipes to kill the pathogens.
Cleaning and disinfecting these surfaces can help lower the risk of spreading the infection.
Do Not Forget Your Gadgets
Your mobile phones and laptops come in the high-risk category. Use disinfectant wipes to clean your phone and isopropyl alcohol (70 percent) solution to disinfect your laptops and computers.
Disinfect Your Appliances
You frequently use appliances such as TV, washing machine, refrigerator, microwave, and more. Clean and disinfect them with a 1% hydrogen peroxide solution.
Wash Your Clothes
Like cleaning the appliances and surfaces, you should also wash your clothes and disinfect the place where dirty clothes are kept.
