More people than ever are concerned with the rise in COVID-19 cases and cold winter months bringing with them an increase in seasonal viruses, so it is more important than ever to ensure your home is as clean and germ-free as possible.. There are many different ways that you can help protect yourself and your family. Cleaning is in an important step because it keeps your home in sanitary condition.
Our resident cleaning expert and chief cleaning officer Tiffany Williams offers some helpful cleaning tips and insight to help everyone fight the spread of germs.
Keep Germs From Entering At the Start
Germs are a part of being human, but even just washing your hands as soon as you come home can reduce the number of viruses and bacteria that live on our hands and in our environment. Families can also create a station near the front door to provide all clean items for hand sanitizer, masks and disinfectant.
Another way to keep germs out of the home is to make a designated spot near the entrance and away from other items. You can place shoes, school bags or purses there, as well as other items that might be infected with molds or mildew. Williams recommends changing out of your work clothes as soon as you get home for the day. This way, your work clothes don't continue to spread germs throughout the environment.
Prioritize High-Touch Surfaces
When it comes to actually cleaning the home, start with high-touch objects like door knobs, drawer handles, faucet handles, remote controls and kitchen counters. These surfaces should be disinfected as much as possible to ensure that germs aren’t spreading by multiple family members and across other items throughout the home.
An easy way to encourage frequent cleaning is to place disinfecting wipes in convenient locations. This way, everyone can do their part to keep high-touch items clean and wipe down surfaces as often as possible.
Buy the Right Products
It is important to buy cleaning products that actually kill harmful germs, so you don’t have to do extra work. The good thing about all-purpose cleaners is that they do a great job of disinfecting. Hiring maids from Kleanroute is a great way to save time, stress, and budget. Our cleaners enter your home safely and are well-prepared with high-quality products to thoroughly clean and disinfect quickly.
Color Code Cleaning Products to Avoid Cross-Contamination
Coloring-coding is a simple way to differentiate which cleaning products are used for each surface and room. Different colors indicate different cleaning items so they can be kept separate: red is for the bathroom, green is for the kitchen, etc. Not only will this help with keeping that extra germ away from the clean kitchen, but it also helps with housekeeping and will save. This is also an interesting way to involve kids in household chores by using colors they know and love.
