Cleaning And Disinfecting Checklist To Keep Your Home In Top Shape This Christmas
By: Emaids

Keeping your home clean and in top shape this Christmas is not only the right and hygienic thing to do but also an excellent way of keeping COVID 19 at bay. When you have a clean and disinfected home this holiday season, it's a demonstration of love and the care you have for your family and the one or two guests you might invite over Christmas.

But for thorough and effective cleaning, it's vital to have a comprehensive checklist so that nothing goes amiss. You don't want to remember at the last minute that there's an area not done or cleaning equipment you don't have.

Take Notes Of What Needs To Be Done In Each Room

Before you embark on the actual cleaning, it's essential to first take a walk through all the rooms and areas of your home. In the process, write down what needs to be cleaned and disinfected in each room.

Taking such notes is essential as it will help you identify the areas and items that require cleaning before Christmas. Besides, if you have other family members or kids, this list will help you assign them some cleaning chores depending on each kid’s abilities.

This list can also help you spread out your home cleaning chores over several days rather than trying to do them all at once. With that in mind, let's take a look at the following Christmas home cleaning checklist guide.

Disinfecting all relevant surfaces is crucial if you have to get rid of pathogens from your home during this festive season. Remember, COVID  19 is still around and causing havoc. However, with the proper cleaning and disinfection, your home can remain spotless and COVID-safe.

Choosing the right disinfectant is vital. Get an EFA-approved disinfectant. This kind of cleaning agent enjoys the approval of health authorities and meets all the necessary quality and standards requirements.

As you make your home disinfecting checklist, pay special attention to high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs and light switches, among others. Such areas will require repeat disinfections to ensure they do not accumulate disease-causing microbes, including COVID 19.
