Do You Know What You Are Bringing Into Your Home?

There are several things that you’re probably concerned about when it comes to the Coronavirus. When you go outside to get your groceries, you’re probably taking every precaution you can. You probably have your mask and gloves on, which is great being that wearing a mask has been advised by the President, CDC, and the Colorado Governor. Additionally, people are making sure that right when they get home, they strip their clothes and hop in the shower.However, there is growing concern about what you’re bringing into your home by way of shoes. How concerned should you be? Elite Carpet Cleaning wants to help you figure out what you need to watch out for when it comes to this Covid-19 virus.

Currently, there are studies that show that Covid-19 can live on your shoes for up to 5 days or more. This can be scary because when it comes to going out to get something you could be doing everything right and still get it because of your shoes. So, what are some things that you can do to make sure you’re not letting this nasty virus into your home?

  • Wear washable shoes. If you’re stripping in the garage and throwing your clothes into the washer before you get too far into the house, then go the extra mile and throw your shoes in the wash too. It is not advised that you put them in the dryer. Air drying is going to be your best option. Stick something in them if you’re worried about them not keeping their shape.
  • Wear shoes that you can spray with disinfectant. It is an extra step but a step that can help save your life or the life of a family member. Remember too that there is a difference between disinfecting and sanitizing. Sanitizing will help to reduce bacteria and viruses, but it does not kill them.
  • If you have leather shoes, then you’re going to want to spray them with alcohol and water. The only thing that you must be careful of is not ruining your shoes. So, make sure that you try it inside on the lip first.

These are three simple ways that you can help keep your family safe during such uncertain times. Of course, you will want to also disinfect your floors on a regular basis just as you have been doing with your doorknobs. You can never be too careful when it comes to your health.
