Sanitizing‌ ‌Your‌ ‌New‌ ‌Home‌

Have you recently bought a new home in Florida in 2020?

Congrats, buying a new home is an exciting process, but it can be very stressful when you become concerned about sanitizing it. In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are looking for ways to minimize their chances of coming into contact with the Coronavirus.

Are you interested in learning how you can sanitize your new home? We’ve created this guide with a few tips to help you discover the best sanitation tips to keep you safe during the pandemic.

Choose the Right Cleaning Products

To ensure that you’re properly sanitizing your new home, it’s important that you choose the right cleaning products. Choose products that will not only disinfect your home but are also safe to use on certain surfaces.

You should carefully read over the back of the cleaning product instructions to make sure it is safe to use on marble, ceramic, wood, or plastic surfaces. If the cleaner isn’t safe to use on one of the surfaces, you will have to invest in another type of cleaning product that will be safe.

Sanitize Common Surfaces

The first place you should start disinfecting in your home is areas that are the most commonly touched. You should begin with faucets, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, and other common areas.

After you have sanitized those places, go through your home and sanitize other areas that aren’t as commonly touched. Any furniture that was left in your home, the sinks, and other areas should be sanitized. Once you’ve sanitized these areas, go back over and re-sanitize the items in your home that are frequently touched again.

Rubbing Alcohol 

If you don’t feel comfortable using bleach in your new home because of how aggressive it is, you may want to use rubbing alcohol. 70% isopropyl alcohol is safe to use in the majority of the surfaces and in your home without damaging them.

You can use rubbing alcohol to disinfect by applying it on a rag and rubbing it on surfaces. You can also put the rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and spray it on the surfaces you are attempting to disinfect.

After you have applied the rubbing alcohol to a surface, make sure that it completely dries out before touching it again. This will ensure that the surface you’re sanitizing has been completely disinfected.

Understanding the Best Way to Sanitize Your New Home

If you aren’t interested in hiring a cleaning service to help you sanitize your new home, there are several steps that you can take by yourself to sanitize and disinfect. Make sure that you choose the right cleaning products to wipe down the most commonly touched areas in your new home. You can also spray or wipe down surfaces with rubbing alcohol as another useful step in the sanitization process.
