Cleaning and keeping our homes safe from outside germs are a priority for everyone right now. Is it enough to clean your space like you always have? Or should you be deep cleaning regularly as well?

What is the difference between cleaning and deep cleaning?

When you clean, you are removing dirt. You are sweeping and wiping counters with soap and water. Crumbs, spills, and leaves and mud that get tracked in are taken care of when you clean your home. The big mess is addressed, but what about the invisible germs that are around your home?

There is a difference between cleaning and disinfecting. The CDC recommends that we clean as usual during the pandemic and that we also disinfect. There are approved cleaning disinfectants on the market that kill 99.97% of germs on the surfaces of your home. After you clean, you should also be disinfecting all surfaces, including doorknobs, light switches, counters, tables, cabinet doors, stair railings, etc.

It may seem overwhelming to take on this extra step, but it is vital in order to kill the germs from COVID-19 and other viruses that may stay alive on surfaces for three or more days. Think about the way you clean your bathroom. Most of us are already include the disinfecting step in our bathroom cleaning. Apply this style of cleaning to the rest of your home during the pandemic.
