SO IS SWEEPING THE FLOOR!
hand held dry dusters (and yes that means Swiffers too)
dry cloths (you may not be polishing those areas to perfection like you are used to doing)
dry paint brushes (my favourite tool to use)
dry flat mops
to protect yourself and your clients you must use a damp cleaning method throughout the entire home and business such as damp clean cloths, and/or a wet mop. Do not dust or sweep which can distribute virus droplets into the air.
From John Hopkins Hospital - NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or cloth. While it is glued (the virus) to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only
-between 3 hours (fabric and porous),
-4 hours (copper and wood)
-24 hours (cardboard),
-42 hours (metal) and
-72 hours (plastic).
But if you shake it or use a feather duster, dry cloth, broom, hand held duster, swiffer product, dry flat mop, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.
