How to Ensure Your House and Car Is Virus-Free in Vacaville

With the coronavirus putting the entire world on lockdown and many people on hospitals, it is important that you do your part in ensuring the virus won't come into your household. There are many places around the world where people are allowed to do personal errands specifically on buying essential supplies like food, water, and medicine so that they can live through day-by-day. However, being assigned to this task can put a person at risk since they're exposed to the outside world, in which the coronavirus could be patiently waiting for a host to attach to.

With that in mind, you should take some precautions on not letting the virus reach its way towards your home. It could have the possibility of affecting members of your household which can be very risky for everyone. So, it's important to follow some simple ways from the Vacaville Chiropractors, that you could do to sanitize your home from the virus, as well as other areas that you need to disinfect.


  1. Clean surfaces using disinfectant wipes - There are things inside our house that we touch multiple times a day. This includes cabinets, doorknobs, sinks, cabinet handles, remote controls, refrigerator doors, and the list goes on. These objects can have lots of germs lingering on its surface and one of them could be the coronavirus.
    • Our home is also the place where we feel relaxed the most, which is why some people don't practice proper handwashing as they do in public places. This is the reason why it's best to get used to the habit of wiping certain surfaces inside your house using disinfectant wipes. These wipes can help remove the germs and if a member of your household is feeling sick, then you should practice wiping those surfaces more frequently.
  2. Use a bleach mixture in cleaning the floors - Your footwear touches a lot of gross stuff on the floor and if you're not used to taking it off inside your house, then whatever germs and viruses it may have come in contact with will be brought in. To ensure that these nasty contaminants don't remain inside your house, it's ideal to clean your floors with a mixture of 1 cup bleach and 5 gallons of water.
    • However, you should be mindful of the materials used on your floor. If your house has hardwood flooring, then using bleach isn't a good idea since it can remove the stain color. For this flooring type, you can use a mixture of ½ cup of white vinegar and 1 gallon of water. Make sure to know your floor material before using certain mixtures for disinfecting so that you won't damage them as you do your cleaning.
  3. Use a disinfectant spray when cleaning surfaces - There are other surfaces in your house that can't be wiped down such as your couch or carpet. For these surfaces, try using disinfectant sprays to clean them instead. You can spray using a sweeping motion on the entire surface and allow it to dry before you sit or walk on them.
    • Disinfectant sprays can also be used as a substitute if you run out of wipes. Just aim your spray into a paper towel and wipe away.
  4. Clean the house using hydrogen peroxide - You've seen people use hydrogen peroxide in whitening their teeth, but what you didn't know is that it can also be used to kill certain types of bacteria and viruses. Upon pouring this substance on surfaces, you have to let it soak for a good 10 to 15 minutes so that it can do its job. Once the time has elapsed, you can scrub the area and rinse it with water.
  5. Disinfect your car - Apart from your body, your car is also exposed to germs and viruses when you roam around the area. It's good to sanitize areas of your car where you interact with the most such as: steering wheel, car door handles, keys, gear shift, all buttons, the console, cup holders, sun visor, and rearview mirror.
    • Disinfectant wipes can be used on the surfaces, except on the leather and touchscreens. You can purchase a specific type of wipes to use on your car's leather. But if your car seat uses cloth, a disinfectant spray will do the trick. Just make sure to let it dry first before you sit on it. For the touchscreen part, a microfiber cloth can do the job but make sure to check your car's manual to see if they've specified something for it.

The coronavirus is no joke which is why basic cleaning on yourself and your surroundings is your primary defense against it.
