Cleaning and Sanitizing Against Coronavirus

There’s no secret about it. If you’ve been on the news recently, you’ve heard about the Coronavirus, also known as Covid-19. It’s spreading rapidly around the world, causing most of us to be quarantined in our homes. Covid-19 is extremely contagious and can be spread in tiny droplets released from the nose and mouth of an infected person when they cough. The droplets can land the people, clothing and objects around them, and also remain in the air. Research has shown that the virus lives for a long time in faecal matter, which is why the CDC advises us to refrain from touching our face.

To stay safe from the Coronavirus, the CDC advises us to frequently clean objects that are touched often such as doorknobs, countertops, light switches, and cabinet handles. If surfaces are dirty, they should be cleaned using a detergent and water, followed by disinfection. For individuals who are high risk, we recommend disinfecting and sanitizing your home.
