According to CDC’s “Guidance for cleaning and disinfecting” reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 by cleaning and disinfection is an important part of reopening public spaces that will require careful planning. Every American has been called upon to slow the spread of the virus through social distancing and prevention hygiene, such as frequently washing your hands and wearing face coverings.
Coronavirus is a reality, but we have some recommendations to keep it out of our homes as far as possible.
How to clean and disinfect.
Wear disposable gloves to clean and disinfect.
Clean surfaces using soap and water, then use disinfectant.
Cleaning with soap and water reduces number of germs, dirt and impurities on the surface. Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces.
Practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces.
More frequent cleaning and disinfection may be required based on level of use.
Surfaces and objects in public places, such as shopping carts and point of sale keypads should be cleaned and disinfected before each use.
High touch surfaces include:
Tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, sinks, etc.
The virus that causes COVID-19 can be killed if you use the right products, and by maintaining a regular deep cleaning habits right on schedule, you’re ensuring you and your family are not unnecessarily exposed to this and to an extensive list of other diseases.
Why deep cleaning?
Deep cleaning is something you are likely going to need to invest in when you first hire a cleaning service. A deep cleaning service will remove the deep dirt and grime in your home. It will cover the areas that aren’t typically covered in a regular cleaning service.
Depending of the type of surface, coronavirus can survive for up to five days.
Some of the services provided when you hire a home cleaning service for a deep clean include:
Remove scale and soap scum from shower heads, taps, kitchen tiles, bathroom tiles, etc.
Clean behind appliances such as the oven, washing machine and cut through the grime that often builds up
Deep and complete dusting including the baseboards and doors in all rooms
Washing the home’s interior windows
Cleaning patio doors and window frames
Cleaning the interior of the oven and glass door
As you can see, a deep cleaning is much more thorough than a regular cleaning service.
When you are ready to hire a home cleaning service, you may wonder what type of cleaning you need to begin with. In most cases, when you are starting out, scheduling a deep clean is a smart move.
It’s a good idea to speak with the professionals to determine which option is right for your needs. Doing so, will help ensure you get the high level of clean that you want and need for the space.
