The COVID pandemic is far from over. This is especially true in Arizona, where the state is opening back up despite a sharp increase in new cases.
Now more than ever, it’s so important to keep your home clean and sanitized. Not only will this help you stay safe and unexposed to the virus, but having a clean home in quarantine tends to be better for one’s mental health.
How to Keep Your Home Clean and Sanitized During COVID
Investing in a house cleaning service such as Maids of Honor (specifically a service that has protocols in place to ensure the virus is not transmitted during cleaning) is a great way to make sure that everything is clean.
You may be thinking, “But what can I actually do to ensure I am properly sanitizing my home between visits?” There are a number of things homeowners can do to keep their house clean:
- Start by doing some basic clean up if you’ve let your housecleaning go while in quarantine. (No judgment here. We get it.)
- Be mindful of the products you are using. The EPA has a list of disinfectants that can be used against COVID-19 and similar viruses. Specifically, products that have active ingredients like ethanol, hydrogen peroxide, and quaternary ammonium are excellent choices.
- Disinfect areas that you may not think about normally. These include door handles, cabinet and drawer knobs, light switches, twist rods for blinds, wood chairs, door trims, furniture leveling handles, washer and dryer lids and doors, hardwood floors, and remote controls. Anything people touch on a regular basis.
- Do NOT mix cleaning agents with anything other than soap and water, especially if you are using harsh chemicals, as this can cause a dangerous reaction.
Keeping a home clean and sanitized is all about consistency. If you’re still staying inside, what better time to build better cleaning habits than now?
