Back To School Disinfecting Tips
It’s that time of year again. Kids gearing up and getting back to school. Whether it’s on the bus or walking to school or moving onto a college campus. It’s an exciting time for both parents and students. Although the prospect of homework, assignments, midterms, finals etc might not be super exciting, getting back to some sense of what was “normal” before the COVID-19 pandemic was at it’s height certainly is.
Over the past year or so when the majority of learning was being done in a virtual setting there was less risk of students being exposed to high frequency community touch points that transmit pathogens and cause the spread of diseases. Now that students are back in on campuses, in classrooms, in dorms, school gyms, computer labs, workshops, etc. that risk is going to increase. Schools at all levels are taking measures to help prevent the spread of pathogens, specifically COVID-19. There’s regular testing involved, there’s vaccination requirements involved and, in some places, there is still a mandatory mask/face covering mandate in effect.
There is however ultimately no way to make sure that everyone coming and going on a school campus is safe all of the time. It’s more important than ever to take steps to make sure that students have the best disinfectant and the best disinfecting protocols when they leave the home or dorm to make sure they are protected against viruses and bacteria while they are in class or on campus.
Whether your home is on a school campus or off campus, it’s the one place where you have the maximum control over high frequency community touchpoints and the one place where you can make sure you are getting the best disinfection and protection against viruses and bacteria. When coming home from class or from errands, make sure that you are disinfecting your hands, your face covering or mask, your personal items like your phone, keys, and wallet, books, backpack, tablet, laptop, and your student ID, especially if you use your ID for services like meals and vending machines, etc. It’s possible that these things have come in contact with pathogens without your knowledge and you don’t want to transfer the pathogens to your own home.
Regularly disinfect surfaces in your home like countertops, computers, light switches, and door knobs. Take special care to disinfect the doorknob on the outside of your front door. It is, again, possible that you have touched a surface that does not have the best disinfection or protection against viruses and bacteria before you get home, so make sure the outer doorknob is disinfected. The best possible way to ensure complete your dorm room, apartment, or house is disinfected is to use GTech Clean and a ULV disinfectant fogger or disinfectant sprayer like the nuPower Compact Trigger Sprayer.
GTech Clean is an EPA approved, all natural, non-toxic, disinfectant spray that kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria including SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) on contact. GTech Clean’s special formula also leaves a microscopic layer of protection that continues to kill viruses and bacteria for up to 7 days. GTech clean contains no alcohol and this is a crucial point for attaining complete, hospital grade disinfection, because the disinfecting power of alcohol based disinfectant sprays and sanitizing wipes dissipates once the alcohol is dry. The disinfecting power of GTech Clean remains and continues to kill pathogens and disinfect. Even better is that GTech Clean contains no VoC’s and it’s all natural formula is safe to use on any hard or soft surface. That means in your home, GTech Clean can be the one step solution for providing complete, long-lasting protection against pathogens.

This simple to use ULV disinfectant fogger can disinfect a 1000 square foot room in minutes. With GTech’s recommended cleaning protocols, you can maintain the best disinfecting power by performing a “deep disinfection” using the disinfectant sprayer just once or twice a week.
