Tips For Keeping Your Home Coronavirus Free
Households across the US remain in lockdown, but with restrictions easing in most states, you must take care of yourself (and those that matter most). If you do have to go out to work, or you need to go to the grocery store, you don’t want to risk bringing the virus into the house – and allowing it to fester. Keeping a clean home is essential.
Research has found the Covid-19 can survive for up to three hours on aerosols, four hours on copper, up to 14 hours on cardboard and up to three days on plastic and stainless steel. This is why it’s imperative you keep your home clean during these times, particularly if someone in your home is immune-compromised.
So what can you do about it? Here are our top tips for keeping your home free from Covid-19 germs.
We’ve already mentioned how long the virus has been found to survive on various items, and that includes your mail and groceries! Think about how many people have been trawling through the aisles of the supermarket, touching that bag of chips, then putting it back – before you decide that’s the one you want. And consider how many hands your mail has been in before it reaches your mailbox – from the sender to the distribution center, to the truck driver or plane, to your local post office, distribution and the man (and anyone else in between). Of course, you can’t wash paper, but you can wear gloves when you open it.
Wash Your Hands Thoroughly
The importance of washing your hands is the one piece of advice that’s consistent, no matter where you are in the world. You need to wash your hands several times a day for 20-30 seconds. Use soap and warm water for the best results. If you sneeze, blow your nose, go to the toilet, come home from shopping – wash your hands. Also wash them before you prepare food or eat, and before putting make-up on.
Inside The Home
Wipe down your doorknobs, light switches, tables, chairs, computers, phones and any other regular-use items. Do this at least twice a day. Covid-19 is most commonly spread from hand to face touching, so it is essential to take care of anything you touch. When it comes to cleaning clothing, curtains, and other materials, it’s unclear how long the virus survives on these surfaces. Your best bet is to wash them with hot water and soap, then hang them out in the fresh air to dry.
What If Someone Falls Ill?
If someone in your home contracts Covid-19, there’s not a lot you can do about them being sick, except helping them take care of themselves and of course making sure they wash their hands regularly to help protect the rest of the family. They need to stay in quarantine for 14 days – and it’ll help if you can do the same (you could be a carrier, and this will prevent you taking the illness out of the home). The person fighting the illness should have their own room to stay in with a bathroom for their personal use if possible. You should avoid contact with other people and clean the house 4-5 times a day. Keep the clothing and cutlery of the infected person separate to the rest of the household. Wear a surgical mask and gloves, and wash bed sheets and clothes as often as possible.
Are Hand Sanitizers And Disinfectant Spray Enough?
Although general hand sanitizer can keep the bugs at bay, it won’t kill it. And most of your cleaning sprays only touch the surface; they break through dirt or organic material on those surfaces. You need a heavy-duty solution. The World Health Organization has recommended that commercial-grade sanitizer be used (the same as they use in hospitals) and you need to rub it into your skin for 30 seconds each time you use it. In terms of disinfectant spray, products with bleach are found to be effective, but there are less harmful options available.
At The Cleanest Room NJ, we’re still working to keep homes clean. We can also assist in keeping your workplace, schools, daycare and even your car Covid-free. We do this through the use of our specialized blend of hospital grade disinfectant – designed to kill bacteria, viruses, allergens and mold.
