Cleaning and Disinfecting (suggested by the Centre for Disease Control USA)

Cleaning with soap and water, then disinfectant. Cleaning with soap and water reduces the number of germs, dirt, and impurities on the surface. Disinfecting kills germs on the surface.

Disinfecting

If surfaces are dirty, they should be cleaned using a detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

For disinfection with bleach:

  • Diluted bleach solutions (at least 1000ppm sodium hypochlorite) can be used if appropriate for the surface.
  • Make sure to allow contact time of at least 1 minute, and with proper ventilation during and after application.
  • Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleaner.
  • Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted. • Prepare a bleach solution by mixing: – 10:1 water to bleach – 5 tablespoons (1/3 cup) bleach per 3.5 litres of water or – 4 teaspoons bleach per 1 litre of water
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products for concentration, application method and contact time, etc.
  • Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants should be effective.

Bleach Cleanable

To disinfect spray a 10:1 ratio water/bleach mixture on the surface and allow to linger for the time specified by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

Rinse all cleaning agents thoroughly with water and wipe with a soft cloth.

Residue left by cleaning agents will degrade and shorten the life and/or affect the product’s.
