Coronavirus is deadly. But what people seem to forget easily, is that it is also highly contagious. The virus easily travels through air and sticks to surfaces which you touch, risking infection. This is why wearing masks and gloves is being so stressed.

When someone in your house gets sick due to the novel virus, it is important to do your best to make sure no one else catches it. This means going beyond just social distancing, quarantine, and wearing masks—you need to disinfect your house.

The affected person may have been regularly getting into contact with other people, things around the rest of your house, and even other bedrooms and bathrooms. Leaving these areas contaminated means risking the other people in your house. Here are some ways to disinfect.

Cleaning The Bedrooms And Bathrooms When Someone Is Sick

When you are cleaning surfaces in the bedrooms and bathrooms, make sure that you are wearing gloves and a mask to limit the risk of infection as much as possible. Make sure you use proper and effective cleaning supplies, for example, EPA-registered disinfectants.

If you’re also cleaning the room and bathroom of the family member who is currently sick with coronavirus, make sure that you only clean when really needed to limit your contact with them. In case you have to share a bathroom with the person who is sick, make sure to disinfect after every use.

Making Sure The Electronics Are Safe To Touch

Electronic devices such as microwave ovens, TV, TV remote, laptops, and tablets are gadgets that people usually touch around the house and are most likely to harbor coronavirus germs. When disinfecting these surfaces, make sure that you use a washcloth, or 70% alcohol-based cleaning swabs.

When you’re done cleaning, make sure to wait for the surfaces to dry before using them. Moreover, consider putting a wipe-able, or disposable cover on your electronics so you can easily clean or change the covers.
