How to clean and disinfect your apartment?

First clean, then disinfect

It is important to understand that cleaning refers to the removal of germs from surfaces. Whereas disinfection involves the use of chemicals to kill germs. We recommend that you read the labels on disinfectants before using them in your apartment, especially if you have pets or small children.

Clean the most exposed surfaces

For example, the kitchen table, doorknobs, light switches, laptops, toilets, controls, taps, washing machine, etc. Look closely at your apartment and make a list of the objectives and the environments where you spend the most time of the day. It will help you to have everything well mapped.

Wear gloves and your mask

You can wear disposable gloves and throw them away after you have finished cleaning and disinfecting. In addition, for some allergy sufferers it is essential to clean using a mask and thus also protect yourself.

Wash your dirty dishes and clothes in hot water

Use your washing machine’s hot water setting. It is important that you look at the manufacturer’s instructions for the most delicate garments. Do not forget to also wash the laundry bag, as that surface can also contain germs and viruses.

The kitchen in your apartment is another key environment for the cleaning process. For dishes and cutlery, it is also advisable to use hot water in conjunction with a good dishwasher.

Aerosol disinfectant

The sofas in your apartment, the carpet, cabinets, closets, mattresses, shelves, and lamps that you do not usually clean as often, you can use a disinfectant spray to eliminate invisible germs. We recommend that you let it dry well before sitting, using, or walking on the surface of each object.

Do not forget about electronics and exercise equipment

Phones, tablets, weights, ropes, microwaves, televisions, etc., are also high-contact surfaces, so you should clean and disinfect them well. Here you will want to avoid the use of alcohol, disinfectants, or similar sprays because you could damage the screen. Therefore, turn off your device, lightly moisten a microfiber cloth with soap and water and gently rub the screen.

If you follow all these tips, you will have a germ-free apartment. In this way, you will live in a healthier and more protected environment. Now, it is the time to show you some of the best options for moving.
