Sanitizing your establishment effectivley – covid 19

The Difference Between Cleaning and Disinfecting & sanitizing

Sanitizing it’s very important to note that cleaning a surface – simply removing dirt and particles – is not the same thing as disinfecting it to kill viruses and bacteria.

There are many products you can use to clean hard surfaces, like soapy water and vinegar. And while cleaning high-traffic surfaces to remove contaminants, dust and debris is a necessary step of cleaning your home, you still need to disinfect those surfaces from the novel coronavirus.

Which Cleaning Products Kill COVID-19 while sanitizing?
Not all cleaning products are effective on all types of germs, so you should know exactly which products kill COVID-19.

Disinfecting wipes, including Clorox, Lysol or store brand wipes
Disinfectant sprays, such as Purell, Clorox or Lysol
Isopropyl alcohol
Hydrogen peroxide
And while using effective virus-killing products is key, it’s also important to follow the proper techniques to thoroughly disinfect surfaces. Let the product sit and remain wet on surfaces or objects for 10 minutes, and that will kill 99.9 percent of germs.

If you don’t have any disinfecting products on hand and are unable to find any in stores, the CDC offers instructions how to create a homemade bleach disinfectant spray. If you use this product, be sure to wear gloves, open your windows and be careful since bleach can damage or discolor sensitive surfaces.

Disinfecting Against COVID-19

You don’t need to clean your house from top to bottom each day, but you should focus on disinfecting the areas that are hot-spots for germs. These are the most important items to disinfect every day:

Cupboard and drawer knobs/pulls
Kitchen and bathroom counters
Toilets, especially the seat and handle
Refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and microwave handles
Remote controls and game controllers
Cell phones, tablets and other mobile devices
Computer keyboards and mice
Door knobs/handles
Table surfaces
Staircase railings
Light switches/switch plates
If possible, wear disposable gloves and discard them after disinfecting. If you have reusable gloves, be sure to disinfect them after you’re done. And always remember to wash your hands before and after you clean and disinfect your home.
