How to Properly Use a Disinfectant
Always wear gloves when disinfecting an area and always dispose of them when you are through. Also consider wearing eye protection. Make sure the area is well ventilated before you begin. Avoid mixing products as the mixture can be flammable or pose health hazards if inhaled.
Start with the higher surfaces such as countertops and light switches before moving on to disinfecting the floor. First, clean the area with soap and water. Next, follow the instructions on the disinfecting product to learn how to correctly use the product.
It is important to read the instructions as not all disinfectants work the same way. Some only require you to wipe the surface with the product. Others, however, may require you to let the product sit on the surface for 10-15 minutes. If you don’t follow the instructions, you may not kill the virus as expected.
