Coronavirus Home Cleaning Tips

As we all are living through the consequences of the novel coronavirus on a mass scale and little is known about the virus that is turning the lives of many millions if not billions around the globe. The call for practicing social-distance, self-quarantine, and washing hands have never been so frequent in our vocabulary as now with the advent of the novel Coronavirus. With our disinfection and sanitization service available across the Greater Toronto Area, you can rest assured that we cover every corner, nook, and cranny of your home as we fight the spread collectively.


It is forcing whole nations to close their borders, have cities paralyzed, and normal activities both public and private seen suspended for an indefinite period of times as scientists, epidemiologists, researchers, and governments with their respective organizations are scrambling to contain the spread of the virus and to avoid the millions who have passed way at the hands of this virus that seems to target especially the most vulnerable and aged people of society. As the situation continues to develop with each passing day. it has become slowly apparent that the virus is not only after our elderly but also millennials around the world. 

As most of us are now at home, hoping to curve the spread and avoiding contraction, it is important to remember that we ourselves are the best line of defense when it comes to limiting the spread of the Coronavirus. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), it is important to clean and disinfect “…high-touch surfaces daily in household common areas (e.g. tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, sinks)…” as these are known to have a high amount of bacteria on the surface area. To read through this article effectively it is important to understand the difference between cleaning and disinfecting. In short, Cleaning refers to the physical removal of dirt and grime from surfaces using water, soap, and a sponge/cloth. Disinfecting on the other hand refers to actually eliminating the harmful bacteria from surfaces. To disinfect is to clean first and to remove the dirt. 

Disinfecting cannot be achieved without cleaning because the chemicals used in a disinfectant are useless against dirt and stains. For treating surfaces first wear gloves dedicated only for this task to clean the surfaces first then go on to disinfecting where the solution should contain 70% alcohol. For soft surfaces such as carpeted floor, rugs, and drapes remove visible dirt first then apply the appropriate cleaners. For clothes and linen make sure to follow the instruction on the label and wear gloves. If gloves can’t be worn then wash your hands after. It is important that we adjust our daily routines to prevent and contract Coronavirus. To make sure your property is fully disinfected, it is advised that you contact our disinfection and sanitization service as we have effective equipment and use non-toxic and environmentally friendly formulations while treating your home all across the Greater Toronto Area.
