Well, it’s almost common knowledge by now that during this year’s Holidays, things are not to as they’ve been in the past. COVID 19 is still around and running amok, at least in some parts. The good thing is you can’t allow this novel virus to destroy your holiday plans. That’s okay, but caution; actually, maximum caution is needed to avoid the risk occasioned by this pathogen.
Yes, there are many battlefronts on which to face this virus, and you need to know them and perfect your skills. One of these fronts is all about hygiene. These viruses and other pathogens can remain on the surfaces in your home for quite some time. And woe unto anyone who carelessly touches those surfaces and then unknowingly ferries the virus to their bodies.
One of the easiest ways that viruses get into your body is via your hands. You touch a surface with the virus, then touch your nose, eyes, mouth, and other entry points into your body, and the virus happily makes itself comfortable inside you. That is the first step to getting infected with this notorious enemy.
Knowing that is critical. It means you can minimize the chances of that happening by ensuring you using a Christmas cleaning checklist this entire season and beyond. So, these are some crucial tips on what to include in your ultimate cleaning checklist this holiday.
The Ultimate Cleaning Checklist this Holiday
While it’s true there are no rules set in stone as you clean your house, there are general guidelines that you can customize to suit your circumstances. Think of these as general guidelines.
- Divide the chores
If you have several people in your household, that’s a big plus. Divide the cleaning tasks among all capable members. It’s easier to clean when you do it as a group. You can distribute the tasks depending on each individual’s interests.
- Move one room at a time
This is another way of saying, be systematic. Instead of doing all the windows first, it would be more satisfying to know you’ve done an entire room and it’s clean and tidy before you move to the next.
- Confirm you have all the necessary equipment and tools
Depending on what you have in the house, ensure you have all the equipment, disinfectants, vacuum cleaners, cleaning cloths, and everything else you might need. You don’t want to start your cleaning only to realize halfway that you are stuck because you lack any equipment.
The cleaning agents you use, whether they are detergents or sanitizers, should be approved and eco-friendly. This ensures the ingredients are environmentally friendly and will deliver the intended results.
For your checklist, there are things you do daily, and others are best done weekly. Let’s see a rundown of these activities.
