There is a perception that if the surface, this could be anything from a table to a tile flooring, is not susceptible to germs from growing because the surface is non-porous one.
Because of this misconception and lack of cleaning attention giving to hard surfaces, it is ever so important to pay extra attention to cleaning and to disinfect during these heighten days of Coronavirus.
The majority of us decide to clean hard surfaces only if there is a visible sign of dust and dirt is at present. However, that hard surface could potentially be housing potentially many different types of microorganisms that could be dangerous to your and loved one's health.
Take the kitchen counter as an example. You come from the store with grocery bags on hand and place them right on the counter. By the time those grocery bags and items end up on your kitchen counter, they have touched by a countless number of people and exposed to various unknown conditions. By placing the bags on to the counter and not cleaning them right after can potentially be an enormous health risk.
In the days of Coronavirus, we have to be more vigilant at monitoring our behaviors, and one slip up can land the health of our loved ones and ourselves in jeopardy.
What to Clean
Hard surfaces in the kitchen are the most prone to risk because that is the one common area you have with the rest of the family. Food gets prepared on the surface, and everyone eats. If the surface is contaminated, those harmful germs will end up in someone’s body.
In addition to kitchen countertop and flooring, other areas to keep in check in your house are.
- Floors (Ceramic Tile / Hardwood)
- Bathroom surfaces
- Doorknobs and Door Handles
- Hardwood or Metal Chairs
- Any other hard surface made out of metal, glass, and wood
Visitors From Outside
