Cleaning During COVID-19

Summary

 

Harmony Cleaning has cleaned thousands of homes and offices over the years and have experience in some of the best and safest ways to do so. With so many questions on how to clean and disinfect for COVID-19, we felt releasing this summary could help our customers.

 
 

Use Soap & Water

The cheapest, most natural, and effective method for cleaning is with soap and water. Soap removes viruses from surfaces for Covid, cold and influenza protection. **According to Health Canada, soap destroys this lipid layer (of Coronaviruses), stopping the virus from being able to infect you**

Ventilation and Air Purifiers

The latest scientific studies have proven the virus is transmitted by airborne droplets and not by touching surfaces. Proper ventilation by opening windows or doors or using an Air Purifier work best.

Disinfecting vs. Cleaning

Disinfecting and cleaning are different. Disinfecting neutralizes the virus using chemicals while cleaning removes it from a surface.

Best Disinfectants

Order of the best to least favorable disinfectants: 60% – 95% Alcohol, Hydrogen Peroxide, Iodine, Bleach. The best disinfectant is alcohol with concentrations of 60% – 95%. It will stop the virus and only takes 10 seconds of contact to do so.

What Does Not Work?

 

A little cleaning and disinfecting knowledge will go a long way in keeping your family safe. That said, finding time to clean and sanitize can be just as hard as doing the actual cleaning.

Vinegar

Vinegar, 10% Malt Vinegar has some signs of killing influenza, but not corona family viruses. Amesh A. Adalja, M.D., an infectious disease expert at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, sums it up well. “[Vinegar] does have acid in it, and it [can] damage bacteria and viruses, but it’s not something I’d recommend using to prevent the spread of coronavirus.”

Ammonia

Ineffective toward enveloped viruses

Alcohol

Of any type below 60% concentration. Drinking alcohol is not an option at all.

Tea Tree Oil

Has been shown to help cold sores (herpes virus) but not against the corona family.

Be Smart

Be smart. Wear masks when inside or in confined outdoor spaces. Wash your hands. Ventilate indoors spaces.

“The place looks and smells great. There were so many WOWs, like the banana treatment on the plants, the windows being cleaned and cleaning the grease under the stovetop. Thank you for the “treat” on the pillows”.

“The house was so clean and fresh that the whole family, including my 21 month old got our best night’s sleep we have had in months. You have got to tell me what you used to clean our bathroom counters, they’ve never looked this good, even when we bought the house”.

“All of my furniture was virtually brand new after the cleaning. They did a fantastic job. They scrubbed and cleaned the furniture over and over until it looked new again. The grey layer of concrete/paint splatter was gone. It looked like it did the day I got it. And the price was seriously reasonable. Highly recommend!”

“Fantastic service! They were a pleasure to deal with and set us up with a post-construction, pre-baby house-cleaning and we could not be happier! Our cleaner was friendly and very thorough, leaving the house smelling clean and not at all like harsh chemicals. We were also pleased to find that their rates are extremely reasonable. We are so happy with their service from start to finish and would recommend them to anyone!”.
