As concern around the spread of Corona virus prolongs, grows and panic buying of soap and cleaning supplies continues, it is also important to sanitize your homes and offices.
If there's one thing we're all doing more of at the moment, it's washing our hands to protect ourselves against corona virus. Antibacterial wipes, hand sanitizer and soaps are flying off the shelves as everyone pays extra care to keeping themselves germ-free.
But what about our homes, offices, and business places? If we're being more diligent in washing our hands don't you think we also need to keep homes clean to avoid the spread of the virus?
In this blog post, we will walk you through the importance of keeping your home clean in the face of Covid-19.
Without further ado, let's get started...
Keeping your homes and offices clean and disinfected will prevent the spread of Covid-19, and any other virus for that matter. But if no one in your household is showing symptoms or has been diagnosed, then the chances of the virus living on a surface in your home are less likely.
The most important surfaces to clean regularly are the ones you touch most often. This will reduce the likelihood of the virus transferring from a surface to your hands.
At the moment, it's still unclear how long the virus can survive outside the body, but a recent US study found it could last on stainless steel and plastic surfaces for up to three days. Lots of factors such as outside temperature affect this survival rate, and it's not clear if just picking up a small number of viruses is enough to transmit the infection. However, taking 'days rather than hours' is a good place to start.
With research suggesting that human corona viruses can remain infectious on surfaces for a matter of days, establishing a hygiene routine with some simple, everyday preventative steps can help avoid the spread of respiratory viruses. Wiping down high traffic areas will reduce the spread of viruses in areas which come into contact with various people throughout the day.
These areas include:
Computers and touch screens
Shared kitchens and bathrooms
Car steering wheels
It is appropriate to use disinfectant to clean surfaces in your homes and offices. Floor surfaces receive a high amount of traffic on a daily basis.
If outdoor shoes aren't removed, or if pets live in the home, there is the added risk of bringing in bacteria and viruses from the outside; therefore it is vital that floor surfaces are not only cleaned but disinfected correctly.
It's not enough to do a deep clean every few days. You should make a habit of cleaning and then disinfecting your surfaces at least once a day, but more often if they're in heavy use.
A Clean Home Is Good For Children
It’s not good for humans of any age to live in filth, but especially children. Young children of crawling age will pick up anything on the floor and put it in their mouth. Children are also susceptible to bacteria, molds, and mildews which can affect their health. Keeping your house clean and sanitized will keep your children and whole family healthier and happier.
