Your home is your haven, especially during this time of social distancing and self-isolating. So what’s the best way to go about ensuring our house is clean? More importantly, how can we minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus? As a top realtor in the City of Abbotsford, we want to ensure that our clients are receiving proper information, not just on homes for sale in their area, but more importantly, staying safe right now.
Consumer Reports has provided a list of common household products you can use to ensure your home is clean and safe. You can check out this list via their website.
In addition, the CDC has excellent 'how to' guidelines on how to clean a variety of surfaces, for example;
"Hard (Non-Porous) Surfaces:
- Wear disposable gloves when cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. Gloves should be discarded after each cleaning. If reusable gloves are used, those gloves should be dedicated for cleaning and disinfection of surfaces for COVID-19 and should not be used for other purposes. Consult the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and disinfection products used. Clean hands immediately after gloves are removed."
And please remember: when picking up cleaning supplies from the store, a little goes a long way! Only buy what you need in order to make sure there is enough on the store shelves for everyone.
We are often being asked if we are currently in a seller's market, or buyer's market right now. Most importantly, we want to ensure that it is a safe market.
