With health at the top of everyone’s mind, Top Mops Cleaning is committed to helping people in their community keep their homes and offices cleaned and sanitized.  Sometimes appearance of cleanliness can sometimes be misleading. Just because something looks clean, doesn’t mean it’s actually sanitary (after all, you can’t see germs without a microscope). For peace of mind, it is important to disinfect potentially-harmful pathogens from hanging out on surfaces in your household.

As you know, it is imperative to wash your hands and to avoid touching your face to help limit the spread of illness.   But it is also important to regularly clean and sanitize all of the surfaces that are touched frequently.

The COVID-19 virus can remain stable for hours to days on surfaces according to a new study from NIH, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University scientists in The New England Journal of Medicine. They discovered that the COVID-19 virus that causes disease was detectable up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. This finding suggests that people may acquire the virus by touching contaminated objects.

This confirms the guidelines from public health officials to use sanitizing practices similar to those we use to stop the spread of influenza and other respiratory viruses. Therefore, it is advised to take the precaution of frequent cleaning of high touched surfaces to reduce the spread of illness. Some of these surfaces include:

  • All Knobs and Handles (doors, cabinets, toilet, etc)
  • Light Switches
  • Countertops
  • Car door handles
  • Railings
  • Remote Controls
  • Telephones and cell phones
