How Covid-19 Spreads As Per The CDC
The virus spreads easily between people
How easily a virus spreads from person-to-person can vary. Some viruses are highly contagious, like measles, while other viruses do not spread as easily. Another factor is whether the spread is sustained, which means it goes from person-to-person without stopping.
The virus that causes Covid-19
Is spreading very easily and sustainably between people and quit possibly highly touched surfaces. Information from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic suggest that this virus is spreading more efficiently than influenza, but not as efficiently as measles, which is highly contagious.
The virus spreads on surfaces
There is a high probability that a person can be infected with Covid-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. This is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, but many people who social distance are getting sick and we are still learning more about how this virus spreads.
CLEANING VERSUS DISINFECTING
Understanding the distinction is especially crucial given the current coronavirus pandemic, because keeping our homes and workplaces clean will help us stay safe and healthy! This post should give you a much clearer understanding of the various methods of germ removal, and which one you ought to use when.
There are three main benchmarks you can shoot for when removing dirt and/or bacteria from a surface: cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting. Each benchmark is slightly different, so it’s worth taking the time to understand what those differences are.
What Is Cleaning?
Cleaning is the process of removing visible dirt, debris, and dust from a surface, and may or may not include tidying up or organizing the space. Cleaning agents usually contain some sort of soap or detergent that lifts dirt from the surface so it can be removed manually.
While it isn’t the primary goal, cleaning can manually reduce the number of germs on a surface.
What Is Sanitizing?
The goal of sanitization is to eliminate pathogens, or microorganisms that can cause disease. Sanitizing a surface reduces some, but not all, of the total number of germs present.
Sanitizing is particularly important when it comes to food preparation in order to avoid making people sick. Restaurants typically sanitize their surfaces and tools with cleaning chemicals or with extreme heat (like the hot water from a steam cleaner or dishwasher).
What Is Disinfecting?
Unlike sanitizing, disinfecting isn’t just about eliminating pathogens—the goal is to kill all microorganisms that are present on a surface. Disinfecting is particularly important in places like hospitals, where the spread of infection can have deadly results.
Disinfection can be achieved with EPA-approved chemicals, including bleach solutions, and alcohol solutions, or using UV-far light. This germicidal ultraviolet light breaks up the DNA of germs, rendering them incapable of reproducing or causing harm.
Should I Clean, Sanitize, Or Disinfect?
Now that we’re all on the same page as to what cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting mean, we can explore when it makes sense to use each method!
Clean Daily: Cleaning should be done most frequently, as often as every day, according to your needs and the amount of activity in your home or workplace. Basic cleaning helps slow the growth of harmful pathogens and keeps your home and workplace more orderly and hygienic. Cleaning should always come first, even if you ultimately want to sanitize or disinfect something. Sanitizers and disinfectants can’t do their jobs as effectively when they’re applied to dirty surfaces, so it’s important to wipe away grime before using those products.
Sanitize Frequently: Sanitizing certain surfaces helps keep your home and workplace healthy and hygienic. Use an all-purpose cleaner to sanitize the most frequently touched surfaces in your home or workplace daily, like your countertops, doorknobs, light switches, and common area furniture.
Other items around your house can be sanitized as needed. For instance, you should sanitize anything that has come into contact with bodily fluids ASAP. To sanitize clothing and linens, simply wash them in hot water.
Disinfect Daily: Disinfecting surfaces will help keep you healthy, but if someone in your house or workplace is already sick or has a compromised immune system, you should be disinfecting often. When using disinfecting wipes or sprays, it’s absolutely crucial to read and follow the directions on the label.
If you don’t use a disinfecting product according to its directions, you can’t be certain that you’re actually killing germs. And since we’re talking about people’s health here, that uncertainty could have seriously dire consequences! That is why using a certified disinfecting company is crucial.
Note: In response to the current coronavirus pandemic, the CDC recommends that we clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces around our homes and workplaces daily. There is currently no cure or vaccine for COVID-19, so it’s important to follow recommendations like these to help reduce your risk of getting sick.
Important Tips For Cleaning & Disinfecting
Nearly all sanitizing and disinfecting products need to remain on a surface for a predetermined time to effectively kill germs and bacteria. That means you must apply a sufficient amount of the solution to keep the surface wet the entire time, and then allow it to air dry. (Afterwards, surfaces used for food preparation or eating should be rinsed with fresh water and dried with a clean towel. When surface is done being used a new coat of disinfectant should be applied until further use.)
Never mix chemicals when cleaning or disinfecting. Some chemical reactions produce toxic gases that can result in lung damage or even death! Always ensure the area is well-ventilated when using any type of cleaning product.
Wear protective eyewear and gloves when using harsh chemicals. And always wash your hands with soap and warm water after cleaning, sanitizing, or disinfecting!
