5 Ways to Disinfect Your Home From Coronavirus

Awareness of how to disinfect your home to eliminate dirt, dust, and bacteria is vital nowadays. Here’s a tip for you: in our basic house cleaning in Auckland, we make use of disposables. Why? We want to make sure bacteria and viruses will not have a chance to return to the homes of our clients. 

How House Cleaning and Disinfecting in Auckland Should Be Done

Now more than ever, we must prioritize cleanliness in our homes. Regardless of whether you shower all corners of the house with a disinfectant or spray across fixtures and furniture, as well as objects with high-frequency human contact. Take a look at these 5 simple ways to do it.

Get Your Disposable Wipes Ready All the Time

Disposable Wipes

Okay, so here’s the thing before we dive right into why you need disposable wipes. The market is already running out of tissue rolls, wipes, and other disposable paper towels because of an increase in demand for little production from manufacturers. With that, you can create DIY disposable wipes

You don’t need to perform general wiping and cleaning every single day or spray disinfectant everywhere, every minute at home. To make it simpler for you and more time-efficient, use disposable wipes. Take note: since you’re at home, you might not be as conscious about washing your hands. With that in mind, having disposable wipes ready around your home should do you good! 

Use Disinfectant Spray on Surfaces Instead of Alcohol

Disinfectant Spray

Aside from popular brands like Lysol, there are other cleaning and disinfecting sprays that can be used to combat the spread of Coronavirus. We highly recommend that you use these sprays on surfaces such as the couch, the coffee table, the remote control, doorknobs, and other objects that are frequently touched. 

Of course, you do not have to do this every minute of the day. You can do this before going to bed, or if you want to be very sure, do this at least every 4 hours. 

Make Bleach Mixture for the Floor

Bleach for the Floor

Again, we know that supplies are running dry. All homes today across New Zealand are searching for and buying bleach. With that in mind, the CDC recommends a ratio of 1:5. Meaning 1 cup of bleach and 5 gallons of water. 

Use this mixture to mop your floor at least three times a week. For those homes with more members of the family, perform this mopping every day at least once before sleeping or in the morning to prevent the spread of the virus. 

Finish Up with Hydrogen PeroxideHydrogen Peroxide

Yes, it’s for cleaning wounds. And yes, it is also an effective teeth whitening. Yet, several tests have proven that 3% of hydrogen peroxide has the properties to inactivate “rhinovirus,” the most common viral infectious agent, within 8 minutes.

To ensure the spread of the liquid substance, we suggest that you rebottle it in a spray bottle. Spray highly-contagious surfaces with hydrogen peroxide and let them sit for around 12 to 15 minutes. 

Seek Support from Professional Cleaning Services professional-carpet-cleaning-services

While we all have domestic cleaning supplies and equipment at home, it is almost necessary to hire professional cleaners to ensure your and your family’s safety. Professional cleaning services are skilled and highly trained to carry out cleaning jobs. They are also knowledgeable about the proper disposal of one-time-use supplies.

Wrapping Up!

We understand that house cleaning in Auckland, despite being at home 7 days a week due to the lockdown, is time-consuming. Not all of us have the golden opportunity to relax due to work stress or household chores. 

Since every member of the family is home, we know that the mess has doubled or even tripled! With that, you can choose to call your trusted cleaning services to do the cleaning tasks for you.
