Cleaning has Taken a New Level of Urgency
Spring cleaning has taken on a new urgency in 2020. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States and other health regulatory bodies have advised all citizens to take preventative measures. As a result, individuals are intensely washing and disinfecting homes and offices, knowing that lives may depend on these actions. With more homeowners and business owners taking extra precautions, professional cleaning services providers have been receiving active requests for deep cleaning to eliminate virus-carrying particulate.
Understanding the COVID-19 Virus' Lifespan on External Surfaces
Scientists from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and CDC are conducting ongoing studies about the COVID-19 virus. So far, the 2019 novel coronavirus can live between two and three days on stainless steel and plastic surfaces. Because of the virus' survivability, individuals must keep their homes thoroughly clean during this time. If a family member or loved one is unwell, it is vital to disinfect high-touch surfaces in the household daily. These surfaces include light switches, keyboards, countertops, tables, handles, and doorknobs.
