DISINFECTING YOUR HOUSE FROM COVID-19
These steps focus on home settings and are intended for the general public.
· Disinfect House means removing microorganisms, dirt, and impurities from the surfaces. Cleansing does not kill microorganisms, but by eliminating them, it reduces their number and reduces the risk of spreading the infection.
· Disinfect Home means using chemicals to kill microorganisms on surfaces. This procedure does not necessarily clean up or remove microbes, but by killing microbes on the surface after cleaning, it further reduces the risk of infection.
STEPS TO CLEAN AND DISINFCT YOUR HOME BY STAYING AT HOME
Wear disposable gloves when House cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. Gloves should be discarded after each cleaning.

Consult the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and disinfecting used products. Rinse hands immediately after removing gloves.
If surfaces are dirty, rinse them with detergent or soap and water before disinfection.
