How to clean your home effectively in the current climate
Here at YVY, our promise has always been to clean up the way you clean by transforming household cleaning. We are out to bring you more value and convenience by providing natural products that actually clean, reducing plastic waste generated from cleaning products and reducing CO2 emissions in how those cleaning products get to you.
That promise is now more important than ever, so we wanted to share some information on how YVY products can help you in the current climate.
YVY is an effective, powerful, eco-friendly surface cleaner. Recently, the Brazilian EPA (one of the world’s toughest environmental agencies), declared that YVY Bathroom Cleaner is the only natural cleaning product that can be considered as a disinfectant in Brazil. In the United Sates, YVY has not yet gone through the EPA process. Even so, YVY products are tough on dirt and grime, as they wash away anything on the surface and leave your surfaces sparkling clean.
So how can YVY help reduce the transmission of bacteria and viruses?
To keep your home as safe and hygienic as possible, it is recommended you use a two-step process; first - surface cleaning, followed by disinfecting.
The following information will help you understand the difference between these two steps and how they work together.
Step 1: Surface Cleaning
Surface cleaning is the first step in creating hygienic surfaces, and where YVY will shine. When you clean you remove dirt and grime, and as part of this process you will also wipe away germs such as bacteria and viruses. You will not necessarily kill the bacteria and viruses, but they will not be on your surfaces any longer so you will reduce the risk of transmission.
Cleaning is also important to prep your surface for Step 2.
Step 2: Disinfecting
Disinfectants are the final step and should be used after cleaning to kill any remaining bacteria and virus microbes on your surfaces. A disinfectant will kill all microbes it encounters, including bacteria and viruses. But for a disinfectant to be effective, your surface must first be free of dirt, oil and grime (Step 1). If you are using a disinfectant to protect against COVID-19, check the label carefully to ensure it is effective against both bacteria and viruses.
Stay safe when disinfecting
If you choose to disinfect using alcohol or bleach (recommended to kill COVID-19), remember these are made from harsh chemicals, which is why they are so effective at killing germs. Please ensure you are always following safety guidelines to keep you and your family safe.
How to Clean with Covid-19 in mind
YVY is a surface cleaner and is a strong partner during the surface cleaning step of your routine to remove dirt, grime and microbes before you disinfect.
To ensure your clean with YVY is as effective as possible, it is important to follow some simple guidelines:
- Use a fresh cloth every time you clean with YVY.
- Make sure you scrub all surfaces thoroughly, even more than usual, to ensure you remove all dirt and grime.
- Throw away any disposable cloths used during cleaning or wash and dry reusable cloths on hot to ensure all germs are removed from the cloths.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after every clean.
