The covid-19 pandemic has exposed a lot of our lack of cleanliness and need to be more active in our environment. In this short article we will name three great habits that you can incorporate in your home or office that will help to cut down germs and bacteria.
Cleaning With EPA Approved Products
Before you start cleaning it is important to make sure that you have an EPA approved cleaning product nearby. The environmental protection agency also known as the EPA has worked to provide the public with loads of information in regard to how to safely kill the SARS-Cov-2 virus, on surfaces. The most popular approved products are the Lysol disinfectant spray and the Lysol disinfectant mist. If you are looking for a product that is biodegradable you can find a list of EPAs approved green cleaning products on their website.
Wiping off Nearby Areas
Cleaning off the areas that we often touch more than once a day is crucial to having a clean environment. Most times these objects become so familiar with our day to day lives that it can be easy to forget to clean them. Cleaning such things as doorknobs, light switches, knobs, and refrigerator handles are great habits to have. Cleaning these areas more often will reduce cross contamination and overall bacteria that traveled into your home or office through outside contact.
Encourage Your Children or Employees to Help
Encouraging the people in your life to help make their environment a cleaner place will increase the level of health in your home or office. Sometimes constantly cleaning up behind other people can become stressful, overbearing, and tiresome. In many ways the Covid-19 pandemic has helped to give people a sense of responsibility and awareness about keeping their environments clean. Hiring a cleaner or janitor is also a way to get the extra help that you need if you find that you need additional support.
