For almost a half month now, self-isolation and self-care have become a way of life. There is no option left, but to do disinfecting possible with alcohol disinfectants to protect ourselves from COVID-19.
COVID-19 is an airborne disease, and the virus remains on surfaces for more than a couple of hours and sometimes even for days. This is a high time to understand how important to disinfect any surface where the virus might exist. Knowing the seriousness of the matter, we all are trying our best to stay germ-free and maintain sterility.
However, many still don’t know how to use and what kind of alcohol disinfectant and antibacterial hand sanitizer are the valid products to block the spread of the virus.
To make life a little easier, Guangzhou YaCoiSheng brings you a guide on how to disinfect your house during the outbreak. Here are some measures you need to take into account.
Clean High-Traffic Surfaces
Germs hang on things you touch multiple times in a day, such as cabinet handles, doorknobs, switchboards, sinks, refrigerators, and doors. The best way to kill these germs is to first clean these surfaces using alcohol disinfectant spray or soap.
Cleaning must be done before disinfection to remove the airborne contaminants from the surfaces. For disinfection, make disinfectant wipes using the 75% alcohol disinfectant and paper towels to kill the pathogens. It is reported by experts that the 75% alcohol disinfectant can destroy the living environment of the virus, and neither higher nor lower than 75% alcohol disinfectants can achieve the best effect.
Assuming we may bring the virus home at any time, do both cleaning and disinfection at least once in a day with the 75% alcohol disinfectant to be safe and healthy.
Clean Other Surfaces
Germs are also lingering on the surfaces that can’t be wiped down, such as couch, carpet, mattresses, tables, countertops. To disinfect these places, you can use an alcohol disinfectant spray, like our Alcohol Disinfectant 100ml spray, to kill the unseen germs. Try spraying in a sweeping motion to make sure you cover the entire surface. Before sitting down or walking on the surface, let it completely dry first.
Wash Your Hands
You’ll hear it a million times more, but washing your hands, after you cough, sneeze, touch your face or come from outside, is the best way to lower the chances of contracting COVID-19 or passing it on to someone else. There is no substitute for washing your hands with soap and water.
Still, an antibacterial hand sanitizer also works wonders in killing the pathogens living on your hands. You can also use a hand cleansing gel, like our 75% Rinse-free Disinfectant Gel, to avoid wastage of water plus sanitize your hands.
Stay home – by far, it is the most crucial tip to disinfect your home and yourself. It is important to stay home even if you’re not sick so that you can take good care of yourself and your family because the more you’re in public, the more chances the coronavirus walks into your hands and clothes, and ultimately your home. Keep social distancing with your friends and relatives because this virus is a different kind of virus; it will not enter your home until you invite it yourself.
A lot is going on out there right now. It’s stressful, scary, and even excruciating. There are too many other preventive measures that you need to take into account for not only yourself but for others, too, such as avoiding larger gatherings and taking medication. So please stay safe and stay home.
