Few months earlier, the task of cleaning home was just a standard morning routine. Helping to make home clean, fresh, and free from germs, essentially it was a good sign and good habit.
But, considering recent COVID-19 pandemic causes, the whole nation is in lockdown mode, every person staying at home to fight from this severe disease Coronavirus.
As COVID-19 scratches the ground hardly, it is our duty for millions of lockdown people to take good precautions for themselves and their families.
Such effective precaution is to take care of your home…! Ordinary cleaning isn’t much effective against on-going disease. It’s important to disinfect your home properly.
To do so, we have shared some essential tips to keep clean and disinfect your home during COVID-19 times.
A) Cleaning Tips
Clean Surfaces Using Soap and Water
Ensure that when cleaning the surface, use soap and other dilute detergent for cleaning. Mixture of water and soap reduces the number of germs, dirt and impurities on the surface. So, clean surfaces using soap cum water mixture to begin with home safety.
Practice Routine Cleaning
Don’t think that cleaning once a week makes your home look good. Routine cleaning is required as everyday wind blows and unwanted and harmful air particles enter the house. To kick them out – practice with everyday cleaning (twice in a day) morning and evening.
Do Regular Dusting
Cleaning the surface is a one-sided task…! In your home there are lots of artifacts such as home furniture, TV, and other appliances. They also required regular cleaning. Dust-off using cotton cloth with or with wet (it’s your choice).
Cover Shine Products
With experience I am saying that cleaning shining products is a much harder task. It’s hard because tight strained remains. So, to keep them shine and feel like new, cover them using plastic or any other transparent subject after cleaning them properly. This greatly reduces cleaning efforts.
B) Disinfecting Tips
It sounds similar to cleaning but has some differences. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) agency recommends these tips for disinfecting surfaces in your home as follow:
- Wear reusable or disposable gloves for routine cleaning and disinfection.
- Cleaning the visible dirty surface, cleaning it with soap and water mixture first, then use a disinfectant.
- Make sure you have good ventilation in the area where you are cleaning.
- It is highly recommended to use an alcohol -based solution with at least 70% alcohol.
- Follow instructions on the cleaning product’s label, and check to make sure it isn’t expired.
- After that! Wash your hand with soap.
In case, you have a positive case of Coronavirus members or anyone suffering from fewer, sneezing, and other influences. It is highly recommended to clean and disinfect every touched object in quarterly hours.
Cleaning home is as important and similar to home decor. Like we put 100% of the creative mind in suggesting and implying decoration of home, we urge you to put that same power in cleaning your home by recommending these tips in your mind.
Good Luck…! #StayhomeStaySafe
