“As the number of COVID-19 cases in the United States continues to rise, people are spending much more time at home, so cleanliness is critical. While typical household chores can maintain the general cleanliness of the house, it’s more important than ever before for people to keep their homes and personal spaces germ-free.
Living and family rooms are also hosting a variety of different germs. Remote controls, computer keyboards, phones, and tablets that are used by multiple family members and guests are exceptionally dirty. In inspecting and testing 22 households, the National Sanitation Foundation found yeast, mold, bacteria, and viruses on the computer keyboard, remote control, and video game controller.

Frequent maintenance and cleaning with disinfectants will give your family a better chance of staying well and infection-free.”
