TALX Topic:

Coronavirus 101: How To Properly Clean & Disinfect Your Home and Office.

The coronavirus has us all obsessively sanitizing everything we touch. It’s essential to understand the proper protocols and differences between cleaning and disinfecting. Get the facts, and be sure to use products effectively.

In our homes and offices, we should first clean and then disinfect.

The protocol to clean first then sanitize can cut down on indoor air pollution and help use disinfectants in the right quantities.

The first thing you’ll want to know is that cleaning and disinfecting are two very different things. The CDC recommends we all do a bit of both, even if nobody in our home is sick.

Cleaning is about removing contaminants from a surface.

Disinfecting is about killing pathogens.

Keeping Your Hands Clean: Washing with soap and water is the gold standard and best way to lower your risk of contracting or spreading the coronavirus.

If soap and water are not available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs.

Don’t forget to moisturize your hands. All this cleaning and disinfecting are hard on your skin. Dry, cracked skin becomes vulnerable to all kinds of infections, so after you wash, apply some moisturizer to your hands to keep them from drying out.

The best way to avoid getting the coronavirus is to stay home.
