After a challenging year, full of anxiety about health and safety, the pandemic is rearing its head back. This means that it’s important to continue to take proactive steps to help protect you and your family from COVID-19 — as well as from illnesses. Fortunately, there are tools available to learn best practices for killing germs in your home.
Research has found out some metal fittings can protect handles, switches, and taps — and transform a home. That's why at all Hiranandani projects, the best metal fittings and fixtures are used to keep residents safe and happy.
Ventilation also plays an important factor in preventing the virus that causes COVID-19 from spreading. Recirculated air should be avoided where possible. The unique design at Hiranandani projects that include 7ft large windows and 8ft high doors keeps the home ventilated and safe.
Here are some additional steps to help protect you and your family from the spread of the virus and other illness-causing germs.
Prioritize cleaning and disinfecting your home
Cleaning and disinfecting your home is one of the best ways to help protect your family from illness-causing germs. While you may think your home looks clean, the truth is that decluttering does not equal disinfection, and even a clean-looking home may contain illness-causing bacteria and viruses.
While most people say they clean to make their house look and smell clean, 25% of surfaces tested in those same homes were found to have moderate or heavy bacterial growth, according to a study about the transmission of viruses in households.
To reduce viruses and bacteria in your home, focus on disinfecting frequently used touch surfaces like doorknobs, laptops, etc, and spaces with heavy traffic.
Top four areas to prioritize:
Free up the kitchen: Clean and disinfect all other high-touch objects and surfaces in the kitchen, such as light switches, cabinet doors, drawer and fridge handles, faucets, countertops, and trash containers.
Banish bathroom germs: Between the high traffic and the moist environment that germs love, your home bathroom is a space that needs extra care. Make sure that disinfecting the sink, counter, bathtub, faucet, shower area, doorknob, and toilet handle are all a part of your cleaning and disinfecting game plan.
Don't forget electronics: Check manufacturers’ websites for your electronic items such as phones, remotes, game consoles, tablets, and computers to follow their instructions on safe cleaning and disinfecting of those frequently used items — then plan to clean and disinfect them often.
Take precautions while outside: While more individuals are slowly opening their circles, it’s important that people don’t let their guard down too soon and continue to take precautions. At Hiranandani Parks, Oragadam, the large open green areas which make up 70% of the township allows ample space for residents to enjoy the open space with safe social distancing norms.
