Coronavirus is a virus that spreads primarily through respiratory droplets and sometimes through contact with surfaces.* It has been found to be highly contagious, so it’s important for people who are at risk of getting COVID-19 to disinfect their homes or offices to protect themselves. This article talks about the importance of proper disinfection against COVID-19.
It is important to follow CDC, State, and Local Public Health guidelines and recommendations when it comes to proper cleaning and disinfecting against coronavirus. The virus is primarily spread through the air and the risk of getting COVID from a contaminated surface is low- this is why the CDC recommends social distancing from others at least 6 feet away.**
Additionally, the EPA is advising people that a simple soap and water cleaning is very effective in reducing the spread of COVID. This includes washing your hands with soap and water and washing hard surfaces with soap and water.**
There are many disinfectant products out there that may be less effective and sometimes not safe for household use. The EPA has a great resource to check your disinfectant product for safety and effectiveness against COVID at https://www.epa.gov/coronavirus/about-list-n-disinfectants-coronavirus-covid-19-0.
When disinfecting, make sure to follow label directions and be aware of the label warnings. You don’t want to end up harming your health when trying to disinfect. Disinfectants are required to be registered with the EPA in accordance with federal law, so never use any unregistered disinfectant.
Some stronger methods of disinfecting against the coronavirus include fogging, fumigating, and electrostatic spraying. These are methods that are recommended to be done by trained professionals who can effectively and safely use them. At Beyond Expectations, we are using the Electrostatic Victory Machine to effectively disinfect our client’s homes and businesses. The electrostatic machine works by “applying a positive charge to liquid disinfectants as they pass through the nozzle. The positively charged disinfectant is attracted to negatively charged surfaces, which allows for efficient coating of hard nonporous surfaces”.***
