The rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus has brought about many questions. Among these, perhaps most pressing and largely unanswered, is how best we can protect ourselves and our loved ones from contracting and spreading the virus. According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention – cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing is a best practice measure for the prevention of COVID-19.
Common COVID-19 Surface Locations
The obvious most common places for the virus to live are on commonly touched surfaces such as; doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, and sinks. Beyond these more common places, the virus can live on both porous (soft surfaces) such as rugs and drapes as well as non-porous (hard surfaces) making complete cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing difficult but essential.
Ways To Help Prevent COVID-19
Cleaning and sanitizing to break the chain of COVID-19 illnesses from secondary surfaces is to remove organic matter such as dust, debris, and other surface contaminants. Emphasis should be placed on cleaning surfaces more likely to be touched by occupants; commonly referred to as touch-points. Touch-points will vary based upon the type of property.
Once a deep cleaning is complete an additional solution now being rolled out by various organizations is “fogging” or spraying which is the application of a high-grade EPA and OSHA approved disinfectant which has proven effective against many communicable viruses. Combining a deep clean with a fogging solution is a sensible method for combating the spread of COVID-19.
