Default House Disinfection

With all that is going on I had my house totally disinfected and sanitized. They disinfected everything. Light switches, door handles, bathrooms, counters, anything we touch. I highly recommend. Their number is 352-433-3408.

Unless you have an underlying illness to be concerned about it seems to be a bit overkill considering the next time you use the bathroom, open a door or touch something outside your house or circulate your air with A/C then come back in it and touch anything inside it will be un-dis-infected again but if it gives one comfort and peace of mind than it is well worth it. That's most important.

Here is another idea. Don't invite strangers into your house.

I'm confused. How is that any different from the guy at Publix wiping off the grocery cart handle. It seems like you could do that yourself in an hour or so without having strangers come into your house and charging you money?

Why not make your own sanitizer ? It is simple to make a bucket of sanitizer with clorox and water. Clean your house with it,and dont bring in people who could get you sick.

We all have so much time on our hands, lets clean our own houses... a little at a time, take care when you have to go out to shop, and then we can beat this virus Letting folk into your house when they have been in others doing the same, however careful is too risky

So I work for a Surgery Center and I've been told that the most effective homemade hand sanitizer is rubbing alcohol and aloe. I went and bought 70% rubbing alcohol and the aloe that you put on sunburns and put it in a bottle 30% aloe and 70% alcohol and your good.

Was someone in your home ill? Why did you feel it necessary to "sanitize" it?

I found that disinfecting at the source is much more efficient, so I drink plenty of alcohol.

If you are using 70% it should be 1/4 aloe 2/4 alcohol.....if using 91% or higher 1/3 aloe 2/3 alcohol. The goal is 63% alcohol once mixed. Is what I have read.

Several months ago I had scheduled our annual tile/grout cleaning. I called and cancelled because I was concerned about coming in contact with strangers, especially ones who are going from house to house touching everyone's dirty surfaces and then dragging their equipment through my house. Figured it wasn't that important and it's something that I can reschedule for another time. My house is my safe zone. I want to keep it that way as long as possible.
