Staying Healthy with Buckets & Bows Maid Service

Cleaning is critical anytime, but especially now. It’s more important than ever to keep your house clean as the global spread of the virus continues. Here are a few ways that Buckets & Bows Maid Service can keep you safe and healthy during this outbreak.

Our cleaning crew is healthy.

Our employees are prohibited from coming to work sick. Most cleaning companies stay so short-handed that they pressure employees to come to work anyway. Our employees know to stay home when they are sick or running a fever.

A clean home helps keep you healthy.

The virus spreads via respiratory droplets that can remain alive up for hours, even days on some surfaces, meaning that NOW is the time to schedule a deep cleaning and a recurring cleaning. Frequent cleaning of surfaces in high-traffic areas will do a lot to keep your family safe, along with other precautions like hand-washing, not touching your face, and coughing and sneezing into the crook of your arm or a tissue, not into your hand.

We clean frequently touched surfaces in your home.

The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to wash your hands frequently and disinfect surfaces. The EPA has a complete list of disinfectants you can use against the virus, including Clorox bleach, Ecolab’s multi-purpose disinfectant cleaner, and Kimberly-Clark’s Hitman Spray or Wipe.

Buckets & Bows Maid Service will be sure to wipe down the frequently touched surfaces of your home, like:

  • Light switches
  • Doorknobs
  • Cabinet handles
  • Drawer handles
  • Toilet handles
  • Faucets
  • Sinks
  • Microwave handle and buttons
  • Coffee pot handle
  • Refrigerator door handle
  • Hard-backed chairs
  • TV remotes

We encourage you to clean your cell phone.

We know you’re not going to leave your precious cellphone behind for us to clean, so we want you to know how to clean the germiest object you come in contact with every day. Have an iPhone? Apple says it’s safe to wipe down phone screens with a Clorox Disinfectant Wipe or 70% isopropyl alcohol wipe.

Tips on staying healthy

  • Home: Wash hands as soon as you get home, before and after food preparation, before eating, after using the bathroom, after touching garbage. If you’re caring for someone who is sick, be extra cautious with your cleaning, frequently laundering sheets and towels.
  • Work: Wash your hands as soon as you arrive in the office, before eating, and after using the bathroom. Avoid partaking in any communal snacks. If you feel sick, please stay home and encourage your colleagues to do the same.
  • School: Teach your kids how to properly wash their hands and for how long (20 seconds!). Remind them to wash before eating lunch or snacks and after using the bathroom. Keep children home if they are sick.
  • Shopping: Avoid touching your face after you touch anything other people may have touched. Use an antibacterial wipe on the grocery cart handle. If using reusable bags, be sure to wash them when you get home.
  • Traveling: Stay at least six feet away from anyone who is sneezing, coughing, or blowing their nose. Wash your hands after going through security and after getting off the plane. Carry disinfectant wipes to wipe down the tray table and its latch and your seatbelt clasp as well.
