5 Ways To Get Your Home Ready For A Disinfection Service

As Singapore continues to treat Covid-19 as endemic, many people are recovering from COVID-19 in the comfort of their own home. This has its benefits, but also brings with it other risks. One of those risks is passing the virus to your family. That’s why more and more people are opting for home disinfection services after recovering from COVID-19.

If you’re one of them, here are a few things you need to do to get ready for your service.

Getting Your Home Ready For A Disinfection Service

  1. Close all doors and windows and vacate the house

One way to reduce the amount of time spent on home disinfection is to vacate the house. This means leaving the home with its doors and windows closed for about an hour or less while our professionals disinfect every room.

Not only does this keep you safe from possibly harsh chemicals, but it also ensures that we are able to thoroughly disinfect your home. We also recommend that you return only 30 minutes after the service is completed.

  1. Don’t cover your curtains, bedsheets or sofa

Before your home disinfection service, you don’t need to worry about covering your curtains, bedsheets or sofa. The disinfectant will act as a sanitizer and will kill any bacteria or viruses that may be present on them.

However, if you’re unsure about whether the material of your upholstery can withstand disinfectants, do check with us when you ask for a quote and we’ll be more than happy to help!

  1. Store away any food that’s out on an open surface

If you’ve got any fruit bowls or snacks lying out, it’s best to put them away in a covered place before your home disinfection. Leaving them out could cause them to become exposed to disinfectant chemical mist and make them unsafe for consumption.

  1. Cover up any open electrical components with plastic

Make sure to turn off and tightly cover up any open electrical components with plastic, as the chemicals used in home disinfection can be damaging to electronics. This includes plugs, switches, computers or keyboards.

  1. Leave utensils and pots in the kitchen cabinet, but wash them well after the home disinfection service

If you normally keep your utensils and pots in the kitchen cabinet, we suggest that you leave them there – disinfection is only conducted on exterior surfaces. However, be sure to wash them well afterwards. You want to make sure that you’re safe in case some of the chemicals made their way onto the crockery.
