Covid-19 Awareness in Durham County
You can do your part to slow down the spread of the coronavirus in Durham County. Following the suggestions of the CDC and the EPA can help you get back your peace of mind during this pandemic. Review recommendations to keep your home or business sanitized as you deal with the coronavirus right now.
According to the CDC, it’s important that you clean surfaces in your property regularly during this pandemic. Note that you should always wear gloves when sanitizing areas that may be exposed to the coronavirus. Cleaning involves first using soap and water in many cases. You should use soap and water – or another appropriate cleaner – on:
- Hard surfaces like counters or tables
- Soft surfaces like rugs or carpeted floors
Once the surface is cleaned with soap and water, you should use a disinfectant to complete the cleaning process. The EPA has issued a list of disinfectants that are approved for use with the coronavirus. You can also use a 70% alcohol solution or a diluted bleach solution. Make sure that you clean your hands after removing your gloves when you are done cleaning.
The CDC also issued recommendations for cleaning clothing and other linens during the pandemic. Make sure that you wear gloves when handling the laundry. You should not shake out clothing and you should wash items in the warmest water available. Taking these steps can help you keep your clothes and linens sanitized during the pandemic.
