During these crazy times, it’s very important and potentially life-saving to regularly clean the surfaces around your home and/or workplace. It doesn’t do much good if you spend 20 seconds washing your hands to only re-contaminate them once more when you open the front door to grab a package, pick up your phone, or hop on a computer. These are examples of everyday activities that we all engage in, but we probably don’t stop to think about disinfecting those surfaces.
Did You Know…
The Coronavirus can last up to 7 days on certain surfaces? It’s scary but true. Depending on the types of surface material, if you don’t disinfect your surfaces regularly, COVID-19 could linger around your home, office, car, school, or other public places long after the initial contamination occurred. Neglecting to regularly disinfect surfaces, especially during a pandemic such as this one, can cause a serious threat.
You should be mindful of the surfaces that are frequently touched. For example, doorknobs/handles, deadbolts, light switches, faucets, toilets, railings, handheld electronics/smart devices, computer mouse and keyboard, elevator buttons and desks or tabletops are all things that need to be cleaned regularly.
Below is a list of how long the Coronavirus can last on different surface types:
Cloth/organic fibers ≈ 48hrs (2 days)
Brass/Copper ≈ 4hrs
Cardboard ≈ 24hrs
Glass ≈ 96hrs (4 days)
Paper/Tissue ≈ 3hrs
Plastics ≈ 72hrs–168hrs (3–7 days)
Paper Money ≈ 96hrs (4 days)
Wood ≈ 48hrs (2 days)
Stainless Steel ≈ 168hrs (7 days)
