The Importance of Disinfecting Your Home

Keeping your home clean is always essential. However, with the current concerns regarding the COVID-19 global pandemic, it’s more important now than ever to clean and disinfect the surfaces and items in your home—especially if a household member has been sick or may have been exposed to any virus. Explore the importance of disinfecting your home.

It takes the safety of your home to the next level

Disinfecting your home takes safety to the next level. Disinfection is a great way to kill germs that sit and live on surfaces in your home. Some hotspots you should disinfect include:

  • Kitchen and bathroom countertops
  • Tables
  • Chairs with backs
  • Sinks
  • Toilets
  • Doorknobs
  • Light switches
  • Phones
  • Desks
  • Cabinet pulls and handles
  • Remote controls
  • Keyboards

While this may seem like a lot of surfaces to disinfect, one way to quickly and effectively disinfect many different surfaces is by using one of Baker Cleaning Solution’s handheld electrostatic sprayers.

It’s easy to do

Disinfecting is easier than it may seem, especially with an electrostatic sprayer from Baker Cleaning Solutions. When you are disinfecting, be sure to wear disposable gloves.

Once you finish the disinfecting process, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after carefully removing your gloves.

It’s effective when executed properly

When you disinfect properly, it is a very effective method of killing germs and making surfaces sterile. Especially with the extra emphasis on cleanliness during this time, it’s important not to forget to disinfect after cleaning. Surfaces should be re-disinfected every so often—more often in high traffic or high use areas.
