Social distancing, self-quarantine and frequent handwashing are crucial to stopping the spread of Coronavirus. So is keeping a clean home. Dirty surfaces can harbour bacteria, mould and mites that can weaken your immune system. Even worse, they may harbour the Coronavirus itself. Because of this, many people choose to engage professional cleaners.

Disinfect germ hotspots like the bathroom sink, light switches, doorknobs and drawer handles. You can use bleach or alcohol-based cleaning products. Both are harsher cleaners that are effective disinfectants but are suited for different surfaces. Bleach should not be used anywhere where food is prepared as it is toxic, make sure all the bleach has been wiped away before moving on. Bleach can also stain certain surfaces so make sure to research which surfaces are appropriate for bleach.
A wet counter-top can harbour germs and provide them with an ideal breeding ground and undo all of your hard work. Paper towels are a good option and should be thrown in the bin after a few wipes. You can use a clean hand towel for kitchen and bathroom surfaces, or a bath towel for hard floors. However, these reusable items require laundering, which may be too time intensive for cleaning professionals who have time constraints.
To reiterate, even though these cleaning routines are best practice amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, they are sound practice regardless. Be sure to encourage your clients to maintain and book in regular cleaning routines. This will ensure that their property never reaches that too messy point. A house that is in disarray can provoke poor health outcomes, hinder productivity and generally put you in a bad mood.
