Tips For Keeping Your Home Sanitized

Keeping Your Home Sanitized

While we propose remaining safe and remaining at home this Christmas season, we realize that some will have small get-togethers to commend the special season. During a time when disease is spreading so quickly and easily, it is imperative to play it safe in order to keep your home and family protected. We have put together a few tips on the best ways to keep your home clean and sanitized. It is essential to eliminate germs and bacteria and the threat of infectious viruses.


What Products Should You Use To Disinfect?

  • Soap and Water: Cleaning your surfaces with soap and water should turn into a standard everyday practice, particularly in commonly used spaces.
  • Disinfectant: Not all cleaning items can kill germs. Truth be told, numerous items are centered around eliminating bacteria but not viruses. Here are a few solutions you can use to help effectively disinfect:
  1. Diluted household bleach that you can make at home (4 teaspoons of bleach with 1-quart of water)
  2. Alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol
  3. Cleaners and disinfectants that state on their label that they execute 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.

*When utilizing these items try to adhere to directions and open windows to have proper ventilation when cleaning. Likewise, make a point to keep the surfaces wet for a couple of moments prior to drying.


Steps To Take To Keep Your Home Sanitized

  • Wipe Down Surfaces
    To start, when doing full home sanitization, you should begin with the surfaces that you and your family contact the most. On the off chance that germs are living on these articles, they can without much of a stretch be moved to your hands and then to other surfaces in your home. Since some viruses can remain on surfaces for quite a long time, it is imperative to practice an everyday cleaning routine with your family to decrease the spread of these infections. Some areas that are used often include kitchens, counters, work areas, consoles, entryway handles, light switches, and controllers.
  • Clean Your Devices
    Next, use a disinfecting wipe or a paper towel with disinfectant to wipe down the entirety of your devices (including any cases). Make a point to focus on regions where dirt generally gets caught. Keep your consoles, contact screens, trackpads, mouse, and controllers clean.
  • Wash Your Floors
    While your hands may not be touching the floor, your shoes and your pets are. This can bring bacteria and viruses from outside into your home.
  • Deep Clean Your Soft Surfaces
    Remember to clean your carpets, curtains, and furniture. These surfaces are frequently disregarded or neglected. These things may not be as easy to clean as the hard surfaces. Utilize the suggested cleaner for the specific item or bring what you can to a dry cleaner.
  • Do Your Laundry
    This one may be obvious, but try to wash the entirety of your garments, towels, and linens routinely. Utilize the warmest setting for cleaning and drying your garments to ensure the entirety of your things dry completely. Whenever you’re done with the laundry, remember to also clean your hamper!
