How to Disinfect Your Home If Someone Is Sick

During these uncertain times it is key to keep your distance at a minimum of 6ft from each other. Keep this in mind when you do have to go out when it is essential, and to wash hands as much as possible reducing the risk of contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As society at large is practicing self-quarantine to fight the spread, most of us at home are increasingly starting to disinfect the home regularly as a precautionary measure against the 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.


But what to do when someone falls ill in your own home, hoping that it is just a common cold? The first thing to remember when someone falls ill is to remain calm. To limit the spread of germs the person in question has to take adequate rest and sleep. The sick individual has to wash his or her hands as much as possible using these five simple steps according to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) 1) Wet 2) Lather 3) Scrub for at least 20 seconds 4) Rinse 5) Dry. If water does not happen to be an option make sure that he or she uses a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Make sure when you are taking care of the sick person, that they do not touch their eyes, nose, or mouth with unclean hands.
