Covid Free Tips

Firstly, we would suggest that you keep all those important surfaces that are constantly used or touched ultra clean. Currently, it is still unclear just how long the virus can live outside the body but a few studies are doing the rounds that are saying the virus can last up to three days on stainless steel and plastics and cardboard up to a day.

One of the things that can affect the Virus’s survival rate is temperature the Coronavirus struggles to survive in hot temperatures. The virus can survive on surfaces up to 30 times longer in places with a temperature of 5 degrees compared to somewhere that has a temperature of 20 degrees or more.

Keeping your surfaces clean and disinfected is the best way to keep any germs at bay, especially in high traffic areas, such as the living room or kitchen, especially if you do still have people in your home that are having to go out to work daily. Pay attention to door handles, kitchen surfaces, light switches and remote controls where germs can linger.

We suggest using disinfectant to clean, Antibacterial wipes are good for keeping surfaces clean, but they will not kill the virus, because bacteria and viruses are two separate germs. Some antibacterial wipes and cleaners will still be effective in keeping germs at bay but we would suggest you disinfect first, Coronavirus is classed as an “envelope” virus this simply means it is enveloped in a fatty layer meaning this can be broken down with the right cleaning supplies.

We suggest you get into the habit of disinfecting your surfaces at least once a day, if possible. Also removing your outdoor shoes before entering the house will stop you from bringing in any bacteria or viruses from the outside world.

And lastly… keep washing those hands as much as often as possible …for at least 20 seconds with soap and hot water.
