Spring is a cleaning and decluttering season. Useful and straightforward home staging tips and house cleaning ideas help create a healthy environment at home and protect you and your family from bacterias and viruses. Recent viruses stay alive on surfaces such as glass, metal, and cloth for hours and days. Cleaning and disinfecting are one of the sure ways to improve your home environment and avoid getting bacterias and viruses from contaminated surfaces. Spring is the perfect time to get started on yard work, cleaning, and gardening in preparation for summer. Fresh air is a great way to strengthen the immune system.
Pay attention to cleaning and disinfecting high-traffic areas, like your bathroom, kitchen, and entryway. Frequent dusting, washing, and disinfecting door handles and switches should be added to your regular house cleaning routine. Plus, you need to disinfect these surfaces a few times a day. Cleaning a surface and then sanitizing it in disposable gloves and a mask with Lysol and Clorox are what you need. You can also dilute bleach or use alcohol solutions (with 70% alcohol or more) for hard surfaces, and wash soft surfaces, like carpets, clothes, rugs in warm water.

Handles and light switches
Cupboards and drawers knobs
Countertops, desks, tables
Appliances and trash cans
Toilets, sinks, bathtub, shower
Towels, sheets, clothing
Phones, tablets, keyboards, etc.
