Cleaning is an essential part of disinfection.
Removal of germs such as the virus that causes COVID-19 requires thorough cleaning followed by disinfection.
Coronaviruses can survive on surfaces for many hours but are readily inactivated by cleaning and disinfection.
It is good practice to routinely clean surfaces as follows:
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces with detergent solution (see diagram attached).
  • Clean general surfaces and fittings when visibly soiled and immediately after any spillage.
