You Should Clean & Disinfect These Household Items Daily

Cleaning is not the only daily habit that could (and should) change for good after COVID. Frequent cleaning of surfaces with a high rate of contact will help prevent the spread of illness.

At home, you should make a priority of creating healthy hygiene habits, as well as cleaning and disinfecting routines with your family.

Your Hands

Frequent hands washing remain the best way to prevent COVID, as well as many other diseases. It’s important to use soap and water to rub your hands together for 15-20 seconds. If water and soap are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand rub. Alcohol is often used to kill bacteria and viruses by breaking down cell proteins.

Doorknobs & Handles

Among the most frequently touched surfaces in the home, doorknobs and appliances handle should get daily cleaning and disinfecting attention. The more often an item is touched, the more frequently it needs to be cleaned and disinfected.

Light Switches

Light switches are among the most bacteria covered spots in your home. These frequent contact surfaces allow easy transmission of bacteria and viruses. A spray disinfectant can eliminate viruses and other illness-causing bacteria in 2 minutes or less.

Kitchen Counter

Salmonella is easily transferred from raw food to other surfaces by improper handling, as well as contact with kitchen surfaces and equipment. Make a habit of cleaning your countertop before preparing food, as well as immediately disinfecting after any use of raw meat, egg or dairy products.

Floors

Devoting extra care to cleaning your household floors may seem tiresome, but maintaining a bi-weekly cleaning and disinfection regimen can significantly reduce the risk of infection transmission. The presence of COVID on floors primarily results from gravity and airflow. Virus droplets mostly settle on the ground and can be further dispersed by foot traffic.

Dish Sponge

E.coli or Salmonella bacteria were present in 77% of household dish sponges. To eliminate harmful bacteria, microwaving the sponge for 90 seconds is sufficient, and you should replace it every 1-2 weeks.

Keyboards

If you actively use a laptop or desktop computer, your keyboard could be a hotbed of bacteria from the various surfaces you touch between hand-washing. Unplug the keyboard, shake it out upside down to get rid of loose debris or food particles, and clean every button and gap surface with disinfectant wipes.

Bathroom Surfaces

When you flush the toilet with the lid up, microbes can travel up to 6 feet, landing on all the surrounding bathroom surfaces. This “plume” phenomenon creates a potential germ hotspot in your bathroom, spreading germs far and wide.

Since bathroom sink faucets have an average of 6200 bacteria per square inch, some of which can survive on hard surfaces for weeks, disinfecting becomes more critical.

At Total Cleanz we provide professional disinfection & fogging cleaning services at most reasonable prices.
