How to ensure a clean and disinfected atmosphere?

  • Using recyclable gloves, which are devoted solely to the washing and disinfecting, to clean and disinfect and remove gloves.
  • Clean any dirty surfaces using soap and water first, then use disinfectant.
  • Clean or launder items according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Clean your hands regularly for 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • If someone is sick, keep the person who is sick in a separate bedroom with a bathroom (if possible).

Use chemical disinfectants safely!

Read the instructions on the cleaning and disinfectant label and follow them to ensure safe and successful service.

  • Place your gloves and take contacts or glasses for eye hazards.
  • Ensure good ventilation (for example, open windows)
  • Just use the quantity on the mark.
  • Using water for dilution at room temperature (unless stated otherwise on the label)
  • Mark solutions for diluted washing.
  • Maintain and use chemicals beyond children’s and animals’ reach.
  • Do not combine chemicals or products.
  • Do not feed, drink, breathe, or use products to purify or disinfect you or your skin as they can seriously damage your health.
  • Do not use any washing agents to wipe or bathe your pets.

HVAC, air, and filtration

Airborne concentration of a virus triggering COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) can be minimized by drainage, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems (HVAC), thereby reducing the possibility of air spread.

  • Make sure that your HVAC filter is in order properly and consider updating the filter to the highest filter for your system (consult your HVAC manual or an HVAC professional for details).
  • When the fan is working, HVAC systems just clean the air, then run the machine fan for more than permanently. Many devices may be set to control the ventilator even though there is no heating or cooling.
  • When correctly used, air purifiers may lead to reducing airborne pollutants in a home or in enclosed areas, like viruses.
  • Improve ventilation with outside air to improve indoor air quality: Open the windows, or screened doors, if possible.
  • Open the outdoor air intake or a vent of your window air conditioner when in operation.
  • Operate a bathroom fan when the bathroom is in use or continuously, if possible.
  • Avoid these actions when outdoor air pollution is high or when it makes your home too cold, hot, or humid.
  • Care should be taken with portable ventilation equipment such as fans, to minimize air blowing from one person directly at another person to reduce the potential spread of any airborne or aerosolized viruses.
  • Running your HVAC system, using an air purifier or a portable air cleaner, and increasing ventilation is not enough to protect yourself and your family from COVID-19. Continue to follow other prevention guidelines.
