These cleaning tips are good year-round, but especialy during the Coronavirus and flu season. Special thanks to Purofirst Disaster Services for providing them.
#1 – In the common areas of your HOA, focus on the high-touch areas – handrails, countertops, sinks, bathroom stall doors.
#2 – Use bleach solution or an alcohol solution, then use the soap and water after, especially in a food area.
#3 – When you can’t find professional cleaning products like Lysol or bleach, use soap and hot water. Some cleaning is better than no cleaning.
#4 – The product should sit for :30 to a few minutes to be most effective. Allow the product to airdry, so it can kill the virus. Then go back over it.
#5 – Clean your common areas often throughout the day, especially high-touchpoints. The more times you clean, the better off you’ll be.
#6 – When cleaning your vehicle is important – such as steering wheel, door handles, gearshift, window buttons, volume control for music, air condition and heat buttons, seatbelts. Consider cleaning your hands before you get back in your car.
#7 – For your personal home (similar to the common areas in the HOA), clean light switches, remotes, doorknobs, cabinet knobs, toilet handles, etc. – any high-touch areas.
#8 – For grocery shopping, wipe your cart handle down. Wipe down your groceries when you get home, especially if you’re using your own reusable bags.
