The world has been through so many changes in the last few months because of the new coronavirus. We have had to drastically change the way we live our lives and even how we clean our surroundings.
Masks and hand sanitizer are a must-have to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Some experts warn that this virus could be in our lives for a year or more to come. So how will this change the way we clean our homes going forward?
New cleaning habits have sprung up over the last few months like frequent hand washing, wiping down doors, even sanitizing our groceries has become commonplace. Undoubtedly, a few new gadgets are being created to help us clean better to prevent the spread of this virus and possibly others.
One new piece of technology has already been popping up in advertisements across the internet lately, UV light sanitizers. This form of sanitation has been utilized in doctors' offices and hospital settings for decades. However, due to the novel coronavirus, companies have been developing a home or portable version of this idea.
UV light technology is a great way to sanitize but must be used with extreme caution. Use incorrectly it could severely damage soft tissues like the eyes or skin. When it is used in hospitals, everyone is cleared out of the room for their safety.
Many of these products are touted as safe for public use but have not been approved by the FDA. This doesn't mean all of these new gadgets are unsafe; it just means more trials and testing are needed to make sure serious injury is avoided.
Technology is continuously improving to help make our lives better in every way. No doubt, a brand new industry is being born at this very moment just for cleaning and sanitizing homes and public places. For now, traditional cleaning and good ole elbow grease work the best.
