The Importance of Cleaning and Disinfecting

In a world filled with germs and new viruses emerging regularly, cleaning and disinfecting play a critical role.

To reduce infection risk, wash hands and use hand sanitizers regularly.

Minimize infection spread by cleaning and disinfecting your home or business.

Whether overseeing a child care center, school, restaurant, or home, implement the right cleanliness strategy.

You need to have a plan for cleaning and disinfecting

Create a plan for cleaning or disinfecting your home or commercial space regularly and avoid mold growth too.

It is essential that you assess all the surfaces in your home or office for potential contamination.

Then, devise effective planning and protocols to prevent bacteria and germs from spreading.

How often should you clean or disinfect?

The frequency of cleaning depends on how often people touch a surface throughout the day.

High-touch surfaces like light switches and doorknobs require more attention.

Clean these surfaces at least once a day, or more frequently if needed.

Consider the occupants of a space and adjust the cleaning strategy for those at higher risk of infections.

This might include older individuals or those with weaker immune systems.

For places like schools where kids may not wash hands often, frequent cleaning and sanitizing are necessary.

Doing these simple cleaning tasks will go a long way to prevent the spread of infections.

Is my normal routine enough?

A regular cleaning routine with soap and water can often suffice to maintain a safe and germ-free environment.

Using just soap and water helps keep bacteria, viruses, and germs at a lower level, reducing the risk to others.
