5 Ways to Keep Your Home Clean and Safe During COVID-19

 

 

  1. Routinely clean surfaces. The CDC website recommends cleaning with soap and water and then using disinfectant. The following are listed as high touch surfaces: Tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  2. Make sure you are using a disinfectant that is effective at killing COVID-19. You can use EPA’s List N to check if your product complies with the EPA’s criteria for use against COVID-19: https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2-covid-19
  3. Make sure to use your disinfectant correctly. Follow the product label. Most labels will suggest keeping the surface wet with the product before wiping clean. Make sure you use gloves and have good ventilation to keep from inhaling chemicals.
  4. Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. This prevents transferring of germs from your hands onto your face or other surfaces.
  5. If someone does become sick, make sure they separate themselves. Designate a bedroom and bathroom just for that person if possible. Use gloves when handling their dishes or trash. Consider letting the sick person disinfect their own space if appropriate or necessary.
  6. Install Core Air Systems to continously clean your air. Core Air Systems are independently tested and proven to destroy 99% COVID-19 particles in the air and 80% COVID-19 particles on surfaces in 10 minutes. Core Air Systems is UL-certified, meaning that it produces NO harmful byproducts, such as Ozone.
