How to clean your house during COVID-19

April 14, 2020

A solid cleaning regimen keeps your house in visitor-ready style, and keeps germs at bay during viral outbreaks. Sure, it’s easy to get behind on cleaning tasks with the kids being home from school and more time spent around the house. Now’s a good time as any to review the CDC’s recommended steps of cleaning and disinfecting your home.

General Cleaning

A little soap and water goes a long way. Not only does it work best for keeping your hands clean, but it works for your house as well.

Get some warm water and soap together and wipe get into the routine of cleaning the frequently touched areas of your home. Be extra vigilant about cleaning areas, such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets and sinks.

Soft Surfaces

Your furniture, carpet floors, rugs and drapes tend to hold onto anything that gets near them, including germs. Launder what you can, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, using the warmest water setting and dry the items completely before putting them back up.

For what doesn’t fit in the washing machine, you can grab your handy soap and water again. Depending on the material you’re cleaning you can use a cloth or a light scrub brush to clean the surfaces.

Try to be a germ-buster

After you clean the surfaces in your home, you want to disinfect them to ensure that everything is squeaky clean. If using an EPA-registered household disinfectant, make sure you follow the instructions to avoid any damage.

You can also use a diluted bleach solution on most surfaces. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for specific items or surfaces, and ventilate the area you’re cleaning well. After mixing the bleach solution, 1/3rd cup of bleach per gallon of water, you want to leave the solution on a surface for at last 1 minute before wiping it away.

Electronics:  A Hotbed for germs

One of those things you might forget to consider when cleaning are the electronics in your house. Tablets, phones, keyboards and remote controls get plenty of contact with messy fingers (if you have kids) and are probably due for a good wipe down as well. 

Alcohol-based wipes, containing at least 70% alcohol, work great for wiping down devices. Follow instructions so you don’t damage any of the components.

Remember to stay safe and wash your hands regularly during your daily activities. With these routine cleaning techniques, it will help ensure your home stays clean and you can stay healthy.

Remember, we’re all in this together, so a cleaning regimen, coupled with social distancing and handwashing, is a great formula for stopping the spread of COVID-19.

The entire staff was very caring. I had my toddler with me and she was a bit rowdy and they gave her crayons with coloring pages and stickers and even a lollipop to help keep her occupied.

My son scribbled on a piece of paper and handed it to one of the woman in the front, saying that is say how his ears hurt, she accepted it and posted it on the artwork wall, when the PA came in to see him he was made to feel like a big deal because he had known about the paper. This is a place where the staff really cares about their patients and go the extra mile for them

I absolutely love our nurse Tiffany. She made our visit so comfortable. I had two very sick little boys who did not want to go to the Dr. She made the at ease in an instant and she took such great care of them. This was at the Quick care on 441 in Ocala Fl. I'll go back to this one because of her. And recommended to all my friends and family. Thanks so much!

I was there yesterday and I've never felt so shocked. The 3 girls I interacted with were the most pleasant and friendly caregivers I've ever dealt with. Idr the rep's name, but she was quick and prompt at taking all my info and with minimal Qs (kinda hard to answer when I have a cold), then Alexis took over. Very sympathetic, nice, and helpful. Then the physician saw me and was charismatic and very funny. Trying to keep me in good spirits. It was like all 3 were happy to be at their posts and to

We had Zaib Kahn as the provider and NEVER have I seen such a good bedside manner, as they call it! AND he personally called this a.m. to ask how my husband is feeling! (The pharmacy was closed when we left the ofc., and they asked us to allow until 11 to pick up the RXs, but that's NOT YOUR fault ;D I'm thrilled w/ Mr. Kahn's service and may well use your clinic for ALL my medical needs!!!!

The absolute BEST! Everyone here is so nice! We've had to come in a few times & they've always taken great care of us. We're usually out within 20-30 min. All the girls up front are very nice & helpful (you don't find that too often), so is the girl that takes your vitals. Dr B is the amazing! He takes his time to listen to what's wrong & always has a big smile. If we could have this office as our primary care location we would
