Being a Residential cleaning company, the Covid-19 saga has made us revisit and verify our home cleaning and disinfecting process and products. Here are Mint Cleaning’s recommendation for a Clean (& properly disinfected) Fresh Home:
Fact before Fiction! Get your facts directly from the official sources. We go to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website cdc.gov (link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/cleaning-disinfection.html)
First CLEAN, then DISINFECT. Don’t take shortcuts! Clean first with detergent or soap and water. This step removes the dirt and some of the germs. Dawn is a great option. Then, disinfect with an EPA-registered household disinfectant. You should aim to clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces daily such as tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, sinks.
Use an EFFECTIVE disinfectant: Clorox and Lysol products are a safe bet. Go to epa.gov (link: https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2) for a comprehensive list.
Finally, take a deep breath…Stress directly impacts your immune system. Know that everyone else is also being impacted. Working all together, as a world community, we can brings our lives back to normalcy faster.
