Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Keeping your Home Safe

4/1/2020 (Permalink)

keyboard, sink, door knob, light switch, phone, tablet, table, toilet Make sure to clean these areas regularly!

In this unprecedented time, community members are recognizing the importance of a daily cleaning routine. In accordance with the CDC, SERVPRO recommends the daily cleaning of the following items:

  • Keyboards
  • Phones & Tablets
  • Tables & Counters
  • Door Knobs
  • Light Switches
  • Toilets
  • Bathroom Fixtures

Keep in mind that while general surface cleaning can lower the number of germs, it does not kill them. By cleaning, sanitizing, AND disinfecting, you are further lowering the risk of spreading infection.

General Surface Cleaning: Physically removes microbes if possible, rather than killing them with a sanitizer or disinfectant.

Sanitizing: To be a registered sanitizer, test results must show a reduction of at least 99.9% in bacteria.

Disinfecting: Destroys or irreversibly inactivates microbes, but not necessarily the spores of bacteria and fungi.

It is also important to remember to wear disposable gloves when cleaning, disinfecting, and even handling laundry. Be sure to wash your hands after cleaning as well as washing them regularly. If someone in your household is sick, it is especially important to safely clean and disinfect your home.
