Once a virus is in the house it’s a matter of time until the other household members catch the illness. To minimise the casualties you have to act fast. Your house will need a deep cleaning and special attention. Here is a checklist for you to follow!
Open the windows: Open the windows as many windows as possible. Your house needs fresh air. Let the germs fly out of the windows. Let the sunshine come in and kill the germs.
Get an air cleaner: Air cleaners or air purifiers are perfect for cleaning the air in the house. Some of those devices have an option to add essential oils which brings additional freshness to the room. It would also help you to get through the sickness easily with the help of eucalyptus scent.
Wash the beddings: It’s highly advised to change the pillowcases every day until the sick person gets better. When the virus left your house, wash all the beddings that sick person used. You can add 1 cup of vinegar with 2-3 drops of tea tree oil to the washing machine to help disinfect the linens. Before making the bed with new beddings don’t forget mattress cleaning. Mix 5 tablespoons of baking soda and 5 drops of lavender oil. Sprinkle the mixture over the mattress and vacuum it after an hour. If you haven’t had your mattress cleaned for over 4 months it’s better to have it deep cleaned. Justmop’s professional mattress cleaning team can clean your mattress in only 30 minutes.
Clean the bathroom: Germs can linger on most areas of the bathroom. Deep cleaning the bathroom is essential after the sickness. Taps, sink, toilet, the bath should be disinfected after the sickness. Wash all the towels used by the sick person.
Disinfect points of contact: Even in a good day doorknobs, light switches, fridge handles, toilet flush handles can hold lots of germs. Can you imagine how bad it can be after a sickness walked around? You can use an antibacterial wipe to wipe all frequently touched places. Vinegar is another option that you could consider.
Refresh the living room: When we are not well sometimes instead of bed we prefer to lay down in the living room. It’s kinda therapy falling in the sweet arm of sleep while watching tv. In that case, you may consider cleaning the sofa, cushions and blanket used by the sick person. If you are not sure how to clean the sofa and upholstery Justmop can do it for you!
