How to Disinfect Your Home

As a local and long-distance moving, packing, and storage company, we care about you and your family’s home, health, and safety. It’s essential to keep a clean home, but in these times, dusting and vacuuming aren’t enough to keep your home properly disinfected. To keep your household safe from coronavirus-causing germs, follow these tips:

Get the Right Supplies

Keeping a collection of the right supplies is an important set in disinfecting your home. It is essential to examine the labels to see that your products properly disinfect. Keep an eye out for the terms “sanitizes and disinfects” and “kills 99% of bacteria” on the labels. Consider investing in wipes to fight against household germs and quickly remove germs from surfaces.

Clean Community Surfaces

Highly trafficked surfaces are a primary target for disinfection. Be sure to choose the right cleaner based on the surface you need to clean. Focus on popular areas such as counters, railings, chair backs, doorknobs, drawer handles, remote controls, fridge doors, and more.

Sanitize Soft Surfaces

Other areas of your home such as bedding, linens, and pillows need to be disinfected. To clean them properly, run them through your washing machine on hot and then dry them on the hottest setting. For larger items like furniture and carpets, a disinfectant spray made for these areas will work. Make sure to do a small patch test when you are using a spray on a new surface just in case.

Keep Good Habits

Disinfecting your home is a great first step, however, you need to keep up these good habits to continue keeping yourself healthy and safe. Here are some tips to help:

  • Don’t touch your face
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Boost ventilation with fans, open windows, and air conditioning
  • Schedule times to disinfect surfaces regularly

Cleaning your home is a big job, but an essential one. You can use these tips to continue to keep a clean home today and every day.
