When Jenny comes home from work everyday, the first thing that I do is wipe down every thing that she touches on her way in and she washes her hands. This thing has been going on for a month now and I've been self isolating with a few exception. When I do go out, I carry alcohol wipes and wipe down my hands. Since I don't seem to have contracted the virus I feel that my house is pretty safe without having to hire someone to disinfect it.

Same here. We had Custom Home Closets scheduled for a master closet install in late March. It's a much needed transformation of our basic m. closet. Requested a delay of the install till we call them & they easily agreed & understood. They've got our down payment already; I won't forget to reschedule when this health crisis is over.

Thanks OP for the information in case someone on TOTV would like to do the same. There could be some in TV unable to completely sanitize their home. There are always lots of thoughts and opinions on TOTV.

I did the same thing to my house using 75% isopropyl alcohol. I did all of the above including all the handles and cabinet knobs.

You had people you don’t know or where they’ve been to disinfect your home where you know who has been there and where they’ve been

What was the name of the company and if you don't mind, what did it cost you and the size of your home? Thanks

Thank you. My husband had me buy the rubbing alcohol & aloe but I didn't know the amount of each to mix. Very informative. I have been using bleach and water for cleaning for years. They say vinegar and water is good as well.

No matter whatever you try, try, and try - don't forget your shoes, car steering wheels, door handles, dog leash, golf club handles, paddle handles, and so forth. Oy Vey!

I agree. For now I asked my cleaning to be on hold. Only because I did not know house they cleaned before. They can disinfect top to bottom as long as you never keave your house. That includes going outside. But if it makes you feel better then it was money well spent

Don’t you just live it after the tile and grout people are done? It makes the whole house shine!

Why the unnecessary criticism? I'll bet the biggest skeptics here are the ones that were crowding the pools and/or standing shoulder to shoulder in the deli lines. Lighten up.
