Think About How Germs Get Inside
The first step to thoroughly disinfect your house is to think about all the ways germs get into your home. We carry them inside on our hands, shoes, bags, and even our cellphones. So if your disinfection process doesn’t include these items and more, you may be missing something.
CDC Basic Guidelines to Disinfect Your House
There are two things to note here. The CDC refers to cleaning as actually removing the germs that cause illness. Removing them does not kill them, but removes them from the area you clean.
Disinfection refers to actual chemicals that kill the germs that cause illness, specifically Coronavirus in this case. Disinfecting a surface generally takes place after cleaning, to kill any residual gems that may still be present after cleaning.
