Family cleaning with ULV500

Can you catch COVID - 19 by touching a surface?

One of the easiest ways of spreading the virus is through contact from person-to-person. However, it’s also possible to be infected from touching a surface or object that has the corona virus on it. It could even have a detrimental effect on hand hygiene and encourage complacency about physical distancing and other measures which is the disinfectant. Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.

What’s the risk of catching coronavirus from a surface?

First, you must be aware that there is always a risk of catching coronavirus from a surface. We all know that fears have been spread about catching viruses from dirty objects. The question has been on people’s mind lately, and social media has been reporting conflicting information, therefore making it difficult to determine what really causes the virus to spread. Based on the data from lab studies about COVID-19, it is really possible that a person might be at risk and get COVID-19 by touching a virus-infected surface or object and then touching their own mouth, nose, and eyes.

How do I avoid COVID-19 at home?

Consistent disinfecting at home is crucial in ensuring your family’s safety from the virus. However, if you’ve been using harsh chemical cleaners to disinfect your home, you may want to take a double look. Most of us have relied on bleach and Lysol when it comes to disinfecting our surfaces at home. While they can kill common germs and viruses, the health risks they cause could be fatal after prolonged use. Bleach and Lysol have harsh chemicals that tend to leave residue and fumes which may have adverse effects on people and pets even through indirect exposure. Thankfully, we no longer have to worry as much about harsh chemicals used to fight COVID-19 and other health risks. There are plenty of other options to try, which can help us keep our homes clean without risking our family’s safety.

What’s the importance of disinfecting?

Now is not the time to be self-assured that you are always safe from Covid-19, it’s important to understand the importance of disinfecting.
