Cleaning and sanitizing surfaces in your home or business can help lower the chances you and others will contract COVID-19 and lower the chances it might spread to someone else.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer these tips:

  • Determine what needs to be cleaned. Areas unoccupied for seven or more days need only routine cleaning.
  • Clean visibly dirty surfaces with soap and water prior to disinfecting.
  • Use household cleaners and disinfectants. Be sure to follow label instructions to ensure safe and efficient use of the disinfectant. Most EPA-registered household disinfectants should be effective.
  • Clean and disinfect high-touch surface areas, including phones, remote controls, counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, keyboards, tablets and bedside tables.
  • Continue routine cleaning and disinfection, and maintain safe practices such as frequent handwashing, using masks or face coverings, social distancing of six feet or more and staying home if you are sick.
  • Early research shows that the coronavirus’ survival is dependent on the surface it lands on – which can be from three hours to seven days, depending on the material.
