Cleaning to Combat Covid-19

  1. Open all windows and patio doors to ventilate.

  1. Wash hands thoroughly before and after each clean.

  1. Wear gloves. Blue for bathroom. Pink for other areas. Wash your hands immediately after removing gloves.

  1. Clean, then disinfect. Use detergent or soap and water to remove dirt, grease, dust, and germs. Once everything is clean, clean again with Byrotol Cleaner and Disinfectant or the disinfectact wipes. Byotrol 4 in 1 Multi-Purpose Cleaner Disinfectant kills 99.99% of bacteria and viruses including norovirus, coronavirus and Influenza A (H1N1). It has a quick kill in 30 seconds even if heavily soiled, so spray, let it stand for a few minutes, wipe and leave to dry. Once dry it protects surfaces from bacteria for up to 24 hours.

  1. Byrotol is suitable for most hard and soft surfaces including kitchens and catering areas, hard floors and floor coverings, walls, furniture and fabrics, offices, workspaces, bathrooms and sanitary-ware. 

  1. Don’t forget about sofas, rugs, drapes, and other soft, porous surfaces. Spray curtains. Carefully remove any visible dirt or grime, then spray with Byrotol

  1. Wear gloves to put all bedding (duvet, pillows, bed linen, mattress and pillow protectors, towels) into a wash bag and zip closed. Do not shake as this may spread germs. Bag it and leave it for 72 hours before washing. Wash on the hottest setting recommended by the manufacturer. Bring in fresh duvet, pillows, matrress and pillow protectors, bed linen and towels for next guests.

  2. Empty the vacuum cleaner after every cleaning. Wipe down the vacuum cleaner with disinfectant, along with appliances like your dishwasher and washing machine.

  3. Dispose of or wash your cleaning supplies. If you’re using paper towels, disinfectant wipes, and other disposable cleaning supplies, take the trash out after you’re done. If you’re using cleaning cloths and other reusable products, make sure to machine-wash them at the highest heat setting appropriate for the material.

  4. Safely remove any cleaning gear. When you’re done cleaning, immediately remove any protective outerwear like gowns, gloves, or masks, and dispose of them or wash accordingly. Remember to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds afterwards.
