- Surfaces should be cleaned using regular products and then where possible, disinfected using a product that is certified to kill 99.9% of germs
- Special attention should be paid to “high touched” areas such as; door and cupboard handles, light switches, TV remotes, tables, countertops etc
- Warm water (not hot or cold) should be used when cleaning surfaces and mopping floors, to maximise the effectiveness of cleaning products
