Cleaning During the Shelter-In -Place Order




Published On: March 25, 2020


According to Gov. Walz’s shelter-in-place order, which goes into effect Friday 3/27 night at midnight and lasts two weeks, house cleaning services are considered an essential business. 

I will be deciding over the weekend whether I will continue providing cleaning services for the next two weeks during the shutdown and will post new information then.

Over the past two weeks I have been following CDC guidelines to review and perfect my disinfecting routine. My current routine greatly helps reduce the virus exposure potentially brought into homes from residents’ activities outside the home.

At the same time, I have been tightening up my protections in terms of not bringing in dirt and germs from outside the house. I do this through using rubber gloves and shoe covers, washing my hands frequently, disinfecting my tools and the tools of the clients that I use, and using either the client’s vacuum cleaner (when possible) or my own vacuum with a fresh vacuum bag with each home I clean.

I am attempting to make my service as safe and as useful as possible in this stressful time.
