How To Clean Your Home and Keep it Virus-Free
Along with social distancing and frequent hand washing, keeping your home clean is another important step in protecting your family and reducing the spread of COVID-19. Since the virus can be found on surfaces and objects, it’s important to clean and disinfect your home thoroughly to reduce your chances of getting sick. Pandemic or not, this is good habit to start practicing. Here’s where to start.
USE EFFECTIVE PRODUCTS
It’s important to note the difference between cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning removes dirt and impurities on surfaces, but it does not kill germs. Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces through the use of chemicals, but it does not necessarily remove dirt and impurities. If you have a dirty surface, clean it first with soap and water, then apply a commercial disinfectant that contains bleach or alcohol. Check Health Canada’s website for the list of approved disinfectants. If you want to make your own, Health Canada recommends using diluted bleach (one part bleach to nine parts water). Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleaners.
FOCUS ON THESE PARTICULAR AREAS
Some surfaces attract more germs than others. You probably know what they are: doorknobs, light switches, faucets, drawer pulls, keys, phones, countertops, tables, keyboards, remote controls, toilet, fridge handles, toys, and fitness equipment. Put on disposable gloves and wipe these surfaces regularly.
TAKE EXTRA PRECAUTIONS IF SOMEONE IS SICK
WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER YOU'RE FINISHED
Once you’re done cleaning, throw out your gloves and wash your hands right away with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
