The current reality of the Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic is forcing many changes in the functioning of households. Common safety and virus prevention has become a priority. Restricting of staying in public places and staying at home are the most desirable behaviors to protect against infection.
The house or flat we live in every day is our safe base. Care for order and properly disinfected objects and spaces will protect us against dangerous viruses and bacteria. See 5 ways to take best care of your nearest space during an epidemic.
Prevention and thorough hand hygiene.
The first step that will help us to protect ourselves against dangerous pathogens is to be particularly careful and ensure that we bring in as few viruses from the outside as possible. When crossing the threshold of the house, especially after returning from shopping or traveling by public transport, the most important hygiene procedure should be started which is washing or disinfecting hands. Another important step is to carefully wipe and take-off shoes and outerwear – and preferably a complete change of clothes.
Remember to air rooms out frequently
Heat and moisture are favorable conditions for the development of pathogens, which is why it is so important to circulate air at home frequently to get rid of viruses and other contaminants. Airing out also has a beneficial effect on the condition of our mucous membranes which are one of the body’s protective barriers.
Gloves for special tasks
When starting cleaning and disinfection put on gloves – during this period of time we should use the supply of disposable gloves. During cleaning, under no circumstances do we touch the face, especially around the nose, lips and eyes.
Preparations for cleaning and disinfecting
We use classic soap and detergents to remove dirt and protect against coronavirus
Places and surfaces that require special attention
In every home there are many objects and small elements that are touched even a dozen times a day – you have to remember about them every time you start cleaning.
The list of frequently touched items at home which need thorough disinfection consists of:
• door handles – especially those for front and bathroom doors
• sink and shower faucets
• furniture handles, especially kitchen and in the wardrobe
• light switches and intercom headphones
• small items and devices used every day, such as: remote controls, switches and buttons for all electronics and household appliances, phones, keys.
The surfaces requiring regular cleaning and washing are also floors, furniture, washbasins, bathtubs and toilets
