Cleaning And Disinfecting Your Home in 5 Easy Steps

If you believe your home has been infected with COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019), the National Environment Agency has supplied some cleaning instructions.

To sanitize your home, follow these five steps:

1. Gather your cleaning supplies.

Wear a surgical mask, disposable gloves, and a bleach solution or disinfectant that has been proven to be effective against coronavirus.

Keep the windows open to allow air to circulate, and avoid touching your face or eyes.

2. Begin cleaning the surfaces.

Prepare the disinfectant or bleach solution, and mop the entire floor of your home from beginning to end.

Wipe toilet surfaces and regularly touched places, such as handles, doorknobs, armrests, switches, and so on, with disposable towels or rags.

When applying disinfectant, avoid using a spray pack since it might cause splashes, which can spread the illness further.

3. Clean the fabrics

Fabrics such as bed sheets, pillow coverings, and blankets can be washed in a washing machine with detergent.

4. Finishing

Mop the entire floor of your home from one end to the other, but avoid going from filthy to clean parts to avoid dirtying the cleaned area.

Put all soiled cloths, as well as other garbage, into a double-lined plastic trash bag while wearing gloves and a mask.

After removing the surgical mask and gloves, wash your hands with soap and water. Clean-up rubbish should be separated from regular household waste.

5. Taking care of one’s personal hygiene

After you’ve showered and changed, air and ventilate your home.

Remember not to share household things and to thoroughly wash used items with soap and water.

Because the virus can live for at least 2-3 days on a variety of surfaces, possibly contaminated surfaces should be thoroughly sanitized. You should not entertain people in your home until it has been sanitized.
