How to keep your home safe from COVID-19
COVID-19 has got everyone serious about their personal hygiene. Along with personal hygiene it is equally important to keep your home clean and sanitized for protecting your family’s health. COVID-19 transmission risk is at the highest in person-to-person than from touching surfaces. Still the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces at least once a day. Every surface in your home needs sanitization even if you do not go out. People coming in can carry germs and also the things you bring are possible carriers of the virus.
Recently, a study has indicated COVID-19 virus can remain in the air for 3 hours. When it comes to surfaces it stays for 24 hours in cardboard and up to 3 days on stainless steel.
Control the spread of the viruses with certain guidelines. There are steps to follow to completely sanitize your surfaces and keep your surroundings clean and healthy.
What is the difference between cleaning and sanitizing?
Cleaning and sanitizing are definitely not the same. Cleaning just removes the dirt and grime from the surfaces and does not kill the bacteria. The cleaning agents work on hard surfaces by removing dirt, contaminants, debris and more. But to get rid of the novel coronavirus it is important that you use a surface sanitizer to kill the virus.

Appliances like refrigerator, dishwasher and even microwave handles.

Ways to sanitize when someone is sick
If there is someone in your home who is sick with flu or other viral infections that are communicable then you need to take extra measures to ensure that your home is well-sanitized. Initially, separate the person from the others in the family. Confine them to one room to make sanitizing easier.
It is best to let the sick person use a separate bathroom. Limit the contact with the sick person and ensure cleaning and sanitizing only when visibly soiled. If they have enough strength, provide them with surface sanitizers to frequently sanitize and clean the surfaces around them.
