Preventing the spread of COVID-19 is a top priority for many companies and individuals. During this time, it is important for all of us to be informed and to learn from trusted resources like the CDC and the WHO when it comes to protecting ourselves, our families, and our communities. According to the CDC, COVID-19 is transferred through direct contact. This can be with other people or by touching surfaces that are contaminated. For this reason, it is important that every consistently wash their hands, disinfect surfaces, and practice social distancing. Apartment buildings, condos, & businesses should be getting regular disinfection services for all common areas to ensure that the building remains safe.
Choosing The Right Cleaning Products
One of the most important aspects of disinfecting or sanitizing areas during COVID-19 is working with cleaning products that have been vetted and approved. The CDC has great resources for both homeowners and for building managers that are working with public spaces. The first important thing is to understand the distinction between cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning is defined as the removal of any contaminants, whereas disinfection is defined as using products designed to kill or destroy contaminants. The EPA has a list of approved disinfectants for homeowners that you can see on the CDC’s website. This list is extremely important, you should not trust non-approved products to safely disinfect a surface. During this time, there have been many scams circulating on the internet selling everything from fake COVID-19 test kits, to treatments, to even cleaning supplies. The EPA is working hard to update their list with new products only after they have passed testing. Non-approved products may be good for cleaning, however, they should not be trusted to disinfect a surface.
