How to effectively disinfect your home against COVID-19 virus


As government authorities and frontline personnel continue to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Filipinos are also doing their share to prevent virus spread and infection, including observing proper hand and respiratory hygiene, and social distancing.

Realizing how the novel coronavirus can spread through small respiratory droplets that can survive for days on surfaces, people have started to disinfect their homes and offices, especially if they have family members and colleagues who are vulnerable to infection.

Here are a few guidelines on how to effectively disinfect one’s surroundings against coronaviruses such as the COVID-19.

  • Use disinfectant sprays and multi-purpose cleaners to routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, elevator buttons, countertops, door and cabinet handles, desks, phones, and other hand-held gadgets, remote controls, computer keyboards, toilet seats, faucets, and sinks. Carpets, rugs, and curtains can also be disinfected.
  • It is best to use products that can disinfect 99.9% of viruses and bacteria since they can kill human coronaviruses.
  • To make disinfection more efficient, dirty surfaces should ideally be cleaned first using detergent soap and water, or other appropriate cleaning solutions. It is also advisable to wear disposable gloves while cleaning and disinfecting or wash hands immediately after using disinfectant products.

Do take care. This too shall pass. ❤
