Combating Covid-19 In Your Home

October 26, 2020 by christian

What a year it has been. Covid-19 has changed the way we work, eat, vacation and live. With most of us working at home and the kids being in school virtually, there is a lot more traffic in the house and things get dirtier much faster.

The CDC has a set of guidelines for cleaning that everybody should adhere to. Luckily, Corona Virus can be killed with basic products that almost everybody available in their house. Some soap and water will be enough to cleanse the majority of the surfaces in your household. You will want to make sure to disinfect your coutertops and other commonly used surfaces. “Normal routine cleaning with soap and water will decrease how much of the virus is on surfaces and objects, which reduces the risk of exposure.” You will also want to use EPA approved disenfectants to help kill the Corona Virus.

Some tips from the CDC to help kill the virus faster and keep your family safe:

“ces and objects naturally die within hours to days. Warmer temperatures and exposure to sunlight will reduce the time the virus survives on surfaces and objects.

Normal routine cleaning with soap and water removes germs and dirt from surfaces. It lowers the risk of spreading COVID-19 infection.

Disinfectants kill germs on surfaces. By killing germs on a surface after cleaning, you can further lower the risk of spreading infection. EPA-approved disinfectants are an important part of reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19. If disinfectants on this list are in short supply, alternative disinfectants can be used (for example, 1/3 cup of 5.25%–8.25% bleach added to 1 gallon of water, or 70% alcohol solutions). Bleach solutions will be effective for disinfection up to 24 hours.

Store and use disinfectants in a responsible and appropriate manner according to the label. Do not mix bleach or other cleaning and disinfection products together–this can cause fumes that may be very dangerous to breathe in. Keep all disinfectants out of the reach of children.

Do not overuse or stockpile disinfectants or other supplies. This can result in shortages of appropriate products for others to use in critical situations.

Always wear gloves appropriate for the chemicals being used when you are cleaning and disinfecting. Additional personal protective equipment (PPE) may be needed based on setting and product. For more information, see CDC’s website on Cleaning and Disinfection for Community Facilities.

Practice social distancing, wear facial coverings, and follow proper prevention hygiene, such as washing your hands frequently and using alcohol-based (at least 60% alcohol) hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.”
