Health experts recommend some ways to keep norovirus from spreading. Although the virus is resistant to soaps and hand sanitizers, doctors nonetheless recommend washing or – better yet – scrubbing hands thoroughly. Public places such as schools and cruise ships with a norovirus outbreak will need a thorough scrub down with at least a 5-percent bleach solution.
At home, people can do their part to beat norovirus. Those who opt to bleach their homes should use a 10-percent solution, given that bleach degrades quickly in the bucket. Additionally, hard and soft surfaces need thorough cleaning whenever possible. Professional experts in carpet and rug cleaning in Ann Arbor can also ensure that people’s carpets and rugs are free of viruses or other things.
