Hygiene is an extremely important part of your living space, and sanitization is a great way to keep your living area clean. Our loved ones, especially if they are seniors, should live in a well-sanitized space because they may be more susceptible to illnesses and diseases. It is also safer to invite your loved ones over to your home if you are sure that your house is properly sanitized. If you are interested in learning some tips for sanitizing your senior apartment, then you have come to the right place!
Spots You Should Sanitize Frequently
Every senior apartment has certain areas that are frequently used and touched. Therefore, these areas should be sanitized thoroughly often. While you should assess your senior apartment accordingly to find out which areas are used often, the typical areas that require more attention include doorknobs and railings, because people make contact with them often when entering and leaving. Also, tabletops and countertops are areas where people tend to be in contact with for a longer period of time. In addition, bathrooms and sinks need to carefully sanitized often as these are spots where the presence of bacteria may be more prevalent.
Easy Access to Sanitizing Supplies
Sometimes, it can be inevitable to forget about cleaning and sanitizing properly. Thus, it is important for sanitizing supplies like soap, tissue, towels and sanitizers to be placed in visible areas that you can easily access. You should also keep your sanitizing supplies constantly stocked so that they are on hand whenever you need to use them. If you are constantly seeing sanitizing supplies around your senior apartment, you may also feel more inclined to pick up your towel and clean the area. It is also a good idea to leave these supplies around the areas you have identified that need frequent sanitizing.
Consider Installing UVC Lighting
UVC lighting is a type of lighting that disinfects the surrounding environment easily. Studies show that UVC lighting is able to destroy harmful organisms in the environment quickly and effectively. If you do not know how to install this in your senior apartment, you can also consider getting the management of your senior apartment to install UVC lighting across all units in the apartment or in common areas where people gather. This will benefit all residents and allow these areas to be sanitized efficiently.
How to Maintain Level of Sanitization with Visitors
You can further maintain the sanitization level of your apartment by encouraging any visitors to go through the proper process of disinfection before entering your apartment. For example, you can get them to wash their hands and provide them with hand sanitizer. You should also remind them not to visit if they are feeling unwell or appear sick when visiting.
