Cleaning in the Time of Coronavirus: How to Keep Your Surfaces Clean through COVID-19

As cleaning professionals, we’ve always taken great care to ensure that everything from our tools to our customers’ surfaces is at the highest standard of cleanliness. As coronavirus has spread over the course of the year, it has become more and more important for families and businesses to make sure their surfaces, both interior and exterior, are as clean as possible. When it comes to keeping exteriors clean, we’re big on showing instead of telling. That said, in our business and in our homes, we’ve carefully followed the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s guidelines to ensure exceptional cleanliness every day. Today, we’re sharing some of our most useful tips for how to keep your surfaces clean through COVID-19. Let’s get started.

Keeping Interior Surfaces Clean

Spot-cleaning is your new best friend! With coronavirus still spreading, it’s highly recommended that you incorporate a quick but effective hard surface cleaning routine into your daily schedule. This is particularly important for surfaces in your kitchen and bathrooms, which have high foot traffic and usually come into direct contact with your hands. When it comes to hard interior surfaces, best practices for cleaning, as outlined by the CDC, include:
5

Wearing disposable gloves, if possible, or washing your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds under warm water prior to cleaning.

5

Wash all surfaces with soap and water before going in with disinfectant.

5

Don’t forget the surfaces you touch the most: faucets, remote controls, doorknobs, and light switches are crucial to clean (and often forgotten).

5

Once you have cleaned and dried surfaces with soap and water, go in with an EPA-registered disinfectant or bleach that’s been diluted with water.

Make sure that any bleach you use is within its expiration date and is intended for household use.
5

Wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds when done cleaning.

Keeping Your Exterior Surfaces Clean

Though the coronavirus is likely to live longer on interior surfaces than exterior ones, exterior cleanliness is every bit as important. That said, thorough exterior cleaning is very different from interior cleaning, and we strongly recommend leaving it to a professional. Though DIY pressure washing is very effective for removing dirt and debris, professional exterior cleaners utilize special solutions that kill germs and can prevent buildup from recurring. Now more than ever, it’s critical to ensure that your property is clean from the outside in, and that starts with turning to a professional you can trust.
