How to Keep Your Home Safe During COVID-19 and Why Should You Hire Professional Cleaning Company to Disinfect Your Home?

With the ongoing outbreak, frequently cleaning as well as disinfecting your home has become a lot important than ever to keep our families safe and healthy in COVID-19.

There are various modes of transmission of COVID 19; however, the main route of transmission is by air through small droplets produced when an infected person sneezes, coughs, or maybe talks.

This is the reason high-touch surfaces pose a higher risk to health. As per the CDC- Centers for Disease, cleaning and disinfecting high touch surfaces are advisable to clean more than once a day, even if you are not going out of your home. From grocery to household essentials, number of items are coming and going out of your home; that’s where the chances of increases.

As per a recent study published by Aerosol and surface stability of hCoV-19,  Coronavirus can exist in the air for up to 3 hours and lives on surfaces such as cardboard for up to 24 hours, whereas it stays on plastic and stainless steel for up to the 03 days.


Cleaning is Different From Disinfecting

Cleaning is associated with eradicating dirt and particles from the surface. It is a lot more different than disinfection which includes killing viruses and bacteria. Number of products are available in the market that you can use to clean the hard surfaces like Vinegar and soapy water. To remove dust, debris, and contaminants, it is an essential step to clean your home.
