Frankly speaking. Once the virus is out of the host, it cannot survive for more than a couple of hours. The virus does not hide in some corner or nook waiting for some unsuspecting person to latch onto. Disinfecting should be done diligently when there is an active infection, to prevent the spread. Once the active infection period is over it is just disinfecting for added assurance and for normal hygiene.

In schools there are tools of the trade to help with disinfecting. Disinfecting fumigation can be done. Can call in a company to fume the place or buy those canisters and DIY. Fumes used are non toxic so toys that cannot be washed can be laid out to be disinfected together in the rooms.
End of the day, the most effective way to break the infection is to limit contact.

The centres I've worked with got no budget for external fumigation costs and what nots. For carpeted areas in certain centres, we had to shampoo the carpets ourselves. As we deal with children in centres and at home, our contact with little ones are limitless. Which explains why majority of us are pretty particular when it comes to even normal hygiene. That said, different households, different standards. :xedfingers:

I let the morning sun shine into the living room and some parts of the dining area.

It is the airborne germs I am afraid of, esp when ah boy coughs or sneezes with no advance notice or covered up.

Going to turn on the air purifier and vacuum the sofa now.

Nope.

I going to be sick

Get your boys to wipe down everything in their rooms, and everything they have touched. The best time is the night before your younger one goes back to school. They should share the load with you.
