COVID-19 vaccines are on their way. But do not forget that we are still at risk of contracting the disease while waiting to get vaccinated and even after a few days of taking the shot. So, it is still a must to practice all sorts of safety measures to remain healthy. One of these measures is having a clean and safe environment. Here are some tips and recommendations that will keep you and your family safe while you are at home.
Use protective gear for routine cleaning and disinfection – When cleaning your home, wearing of cleaning gloves, mask, and eye guard are essential to protect your eyes, nose, and mouth that may serve as entryway of disease-causing germs and viruses. Frequent cleaning of touched surfaces such as Tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks is necessary. For these surfaces, you can use Lola Wowables™ together with household disinfectants against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Keep a separate room and bathroom (If possible) for people that are sick – During outbreaks, home quarantine is a considerable option especially when hospitals and other medical facilities can no longer accommodate the massive number of patients. When at home, an ill individual must be isolated from other healthy family members unless proven that his/her illness cannot be passed. Otherwise, a separate room and bathroom (if space allows) must be prepared to reduce the exposure and the contact between the patient and other the healthy people. You must also clean these facilities used by the infected individual with disinfectant regularly. Use protective gear when doing so. You can also count on our Lola Rola Sticky Mop™ for debris and stains on walls and floors. It also has cleaning sheets that you can tear and dispose instantly afterwards.
Wash items (if possible) – After every trip outdoors, you must change your clothes and wash them to kill the viruses that you have brought with you. This also applies on other clothing materials such as towels, linens, and other items. Thoroughly clean them with Lola Scrub brush to remove all debris including dirt and dust. You should also disinfect laundry hampers to make sure there’s no live virus left.
Have proper sanitation in food preparation – Food plays a crucial part in spreading viruses since we consume it through ingestion, germs and bacteria that can make us sick may come along. It is important to properly wash and sanitize your hands before you handle food to prevent contamination. Also make sure that you have a cleaning cloth such as Lola Anti-microbial Clean N' Wipe™ cloths by your side to wipe countertops, cooking tools, or your hands.
Practice proper waste disposal – Before throwing anything in the trash, make sure you have a bag that won’t leak or spill the garbage. Use protective gear when removing garbage bags, and handling and disposing of trash. Use Lola Handled Scrubber Brush to disinfect and clean garbage cans and bins and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.
