In the midst of the novel coronavirus pandemic, it has become difficult to find cleaners, who provide home sanitizing services in Noida, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, and other parts of NCR and also the cleaning supplies than usual. You might be wondering how to keep your house clean and well-sanitized.

At many blogs and articles, you will see alcohol listed as an active ingredient to kill viruses, but is that really true? Sanitizers and rubbing alcohol are often used by people to neutralize germs and viruses. But, is that applicable to sanitize your home too or, you will have to hire professional cleaners who can provide you home sanitization service in Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, or other cities?

The truth is that you need a special or particular kind of alcohol to disinfect germs, bacteria, and viruses from your home that can spread infectious diseases. The alcohols that we humans consume are not the type of alcohol that can be used for home disinfecting.

At this time, sanitizing your hands is important and this can be done simply by washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly and don’t forget the back of your hands, under nails and between the fingers. Rub the hands and then rinse it with running tap water. This will prevent the spread of germs. And use sanitizers that contain at least 60% alcohol. But, using alcohol like vodka can never be recommended to clean your hands. Absolutely no!

If you still hoping to use alcohol to clean the surfaces then, here’s know what you need to know before you do so.

Is Disinfection Surface Possible with Alcohol?

The hard objects and items that you use regularly can be sanitized by rubbing alcohol that usually available in stores and online as well. These bottled rubbing alcohols are made using isopropyl alcohol, which is a colorless solution with a strong odor. So, the solution that contains 70% alcohol is best for killing the viruses and other bacteria on a surface. But, you cannot consider using rubbing alcohol to sanitize your entire home, because these mixtures can be tough to use effectively when covering a large space.

Can I Use Liquor to Sanitize My House?

As we have already discussed above that it depends on the strength of the solution whether or not it will kill the germs. But, to be very frank and straightforward I would say ‘No’ you cannot sanitize your house with your favorite cocktails, because they are not intense enough to actually sanitize of disinfecting the surfaces to remove the germs and viruses. People say that vodka, works as a sanitizer even for the pandemic COVID-19, but it’s not true. Disinfectants and sanitizers that can kill germs, bacteria, and viruses have a much higher alcohol concentration and are actually much different than the kinds of liquors consumed by humans orally.

If you find any version of alcohol products and you are thinking of using it to disinfect your house then make sure that the product contains at least 70% alcohol. Otherwise, just get a professional service provider for disinfection sanitization services in Noida and nearby cities.
