COVID Resurgence: How to Maintain a Clean and Safe Home

As the world continues to grapple with the ebb and flow of COVID-19, the importance of maintaining a clean and safe space in the wake of resurging cases can not be underestimated. 

Here are our top tips and guidelines for protecting your home as COVID begins to resurface.

Frequent Handwashing

The foundation of a safe home starts with the basics, and proper handwashing remains one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of the virus. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in public or touching commonly used surfaces. For easy hand-cleaning on-the-go, keep a travel-sized hand sanitizer in your purse or backpack. 

Create A Cleaning Schedule

Develop a regular cleaning routine for your home that includes wiping down high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, countertops, and faucets. Stock your cleaning kit with the proper deep-cleaning supplies like our Anti-Microbial Cloths and award winning Multi-Surface Disinfectant, killing 99.9% of germs including the virus that causes COVID.

Provide Proper Ventilation

Adequate ventilation and airflow are essential to reduce indoor air pollutants and particles which reduces the risk of infection. Open windows and doors when it’s warm enough to allow fresh air to circulate, especially when hosting guests or if a family member is under the weather.

Routine Laundry 

Running routine loads of laundry will make sure your clothes and materials stay clear of germs they come into contact with. Frequently wash your favorite outfits and even travel items such as tote bags or backpacks to prevent germs from entering your home. Use hot water when possible and dry them thoroughly. 

To eliminate additional bacteria, wash bedding, towels, and washcloths often, especially if you’re feeling ill to keep your bedroom and bathroom sanitized and safe.

The resurgence of COVID-19 can feel scary, but following protocols and taking the appropriate precautions can curb the spread in your space. We hope these guidelines will help you maintain a healthy, clean, and comfortable home for you and your loved ones.
