Maintaining good personal hygiene helps to prevent ourselves from getting or spreading germs and viruses to the people around us. One year into the COVID-19 global pandemic, we have completely adapted to a new normal lifestyle and become familiar with slogans such as “stay home, stay safe”, “wash your hands”, “wear a mask” and “social distancing” to help reduce virus transmission risk. Besides personal hygiene, disinfecting a physical space like our homes are often neglected unless there is a suspected or confirmed infection. Oftentimes, regular house cleaning can be sufficient but it still can’t completely eliminate the presence of germs and viruses. By going an extra step to disinfect the house, you can get peace of mind and safeguard you and your loved one’s safety during this crucial period. Additionally, you can potentially reduce the presence of not only the COVID-19 virus but also the common cold or flu within your home. Read on for some basic tips to disinfect your homes.
Prior to disinfecting your space, ensure to wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds and put on basic protective equipment like disposable gloves and a medical mask. Disposable gloves can help protect your hands from germs and harsh chemicals while wearing a medical mask can help prevent viruses from potentially entering your respiratory system. It is also highly recommended to open your windows to ensure adequate ventilation indoors. Furthermore, it is important to remove dust and dirt on surfaces using a cleaning solution before disinfecting.
For home disinfection, disinfecting frequently touched points are often sufficient to reduce the presence of virus particles within the house. Commonly touched surfaces at home may include doorknobs, tables, phone screens, light switches and more. Disinfect and wipe down frequently touched surfaces using a household disinfectant that is approved for its safety by regulatory bodies. Always make sure to read and follow the product manufacturer’s instructions when using a disinfectant.
After disinfecting all surfaces around the house, remove your gloves and mask, seal them in a plastic bag before disposing them into the bin. Then wash your hands with soap again for at least 20 seconds.
