January 30, 2021 at 8:30 AM

Your home should be your sanctuary, but it's often filled with more germs than you might think. Read these tips to get it as clean and germ-free as possible to protect yourself and your family. If you need a professional service to clean and disinfect your home or business, Disinfect-it is up to the task.

Products That Kill Covid

It's likely that you already have cleaning products that kill COVID-19. They include hydrogen peroxide, Lysol or store brand wipes, Clorox, Purell, and Isopropyl alcohol. It's very important to follow the proper techniques to thoroughly disinfect surfaces. It's advised that you let the product remain wet and sit on surfaces and objects for 10 minutes. This kills 99.9% of germs.

Need A Covid Remediation Plan?

If someone in your home has COVID-19, it's vital that they stay separated from other people. They should use another bedroom and bathroom if possible. The areas around them should be cleaned when soiled to limit your contact with the person who is sick. If possible, provide them with cleaning products so they can disinfect the objects they touch.

Hotspot areas for germs include faucets, drawer knobs, mobile devices, counters, remote controls, table surfaces, light switches, and staircase railings. They should be disinfected every day. Use disposable gloves and toss them in the garbage when you are finished. Don't forget to wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water. Wrists, between the fingers, and under the fingernails should not be avoided.

After we identify a course of action for the most effective virus disinfecting, we determine potential high hazard touchpoints and attack those sources with a medical-grade high-level disinfectant. Then, we begin the fogging process which eliminates airborne pathogens. Finally, we use adenosine triphosphate testing technology to guarantee hospital-level standards of disinfection. Click here for a free estimate!
