In recent news, people have proposed the question of whether thoroughly cleaning as a preventive measure for Covid is still necessary. The CDC has also stated that COVID-19 transmission happens predominantly from airborne particles and less from surfaces. Despite these recent statements hanging in the air right now, does it really mean thorough cleaning is a losing game?
If we view this new information with a critical lens, there’s a vital component missing.
COVID Cleaning is Immune System Protection
It may be tempting to drop your disinfectant cleaner and rag after reading the current statement from the CDC – but don’t act too quickly. There’s a crucial piece of information we must all remember.
Having a clean and sanitary space can prevent other viruses, illnesses, and infections.
Now, you may be scratching your head and asking, “what does that have to do with preventing Covid?” Don’t worry, we’ll tell you!
One of the best ways to fight off any virus or illness is by having a strong and healthy immune system. But one way we can compromise our immune system is by getting sick.
It’s (blank) to catch a cold or the flu by touching commonly used surfaces such as door handles and countertops. Studies have shown that contracting viruses such as the flu can compromise the immune system and leave it vulnerable to foreign invaders.
The point we want to make to you is that by thoroughly disinfecting commonly used surfaces, you’re not only preventing Covid-19. By preventing the transmission of other common viruses – you are protecting your immune system.
Data released by the CDC states that 94% of people who have died from COVID-19 also had a pre-existing condition.
Instead of saying disinfecting surfaces does little to slow the spread of Covid-19 – let’s say it helps keep our immune systems safe and healthy.
Covid Cleaning Options
Since the start of this global pandemic, everyone has been on the hunt for the best way to clean their home and workplace surfaces. If you’re still unsure which method will work best for you, here are two terrific options.
A Quick Spritz
If you’re looking for a quick and easy method, disinfect sprays such as Lysol is a fantastic option. Although, the surface should later be followed up with a more thorough cleaning. Products like Lysol are best used throughout the day before your office cleaning crew comes in.
Cover all the Bases
When it comes to Covid cleaning, the ability to reach all of the nooks and crannies is important, but that can be difficult to do with just rags and sprays. For this reason, we recommend electrostatic spray cleaning! Electrostatic cleaning is typically done by a commercial cleaning company during non-operational hours. This process allows you to cover more area in less time. It is especially effective on public areas like elevator buttons, stairway railings, and other high-touch points.
