Before you begin, make sure to read and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the product label for safe and effective use.

  1. Gather your supplies:

    • Q-64 Disinfectant Cleaner and Deodorizer
    • Disposable gloves
    • Cleaning cloths or disposable wipes
    • Empty spray bottles (if not already in the right form)
    • Trash bags
    • Soap and water
  2. Wash your hands: Start by washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Proper hand hygiene is essential when dealing with disinfectants.

  3. Wear gloves: Put on disposable gloves to protect your skin while using the disinfectant.

  4. Prepare your disinfectant:

    • If the Q-64 Disinfectant it diluted and ready-to-use, you can skip this step.
    • If it's in concentrated form, follow the manufacturer's instructions for dilution of 1 oz. of concentrate to a gallon of water.
  5. Clean and disinfect surfaces:

    • Start with high-touch surfaces like doorknobs, light switches, remote controls, and countertops.
    • Spray or apply Q-64 Disinfectant Cleaner and Deodorizer directly onto the surface.
    • Let it sit for the recommended contact time as indicated on the product label. Typically, this is around 5-10 minutes, but it may vary. Ensure the surface remains wet during this time.
    • Wipe the surface clean with a clean cloth or disposable wipe.
    • Discard the used wipes or cloths in a trash bag.
  6. Clean frequently: Be diligent about cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces daily, or more often if someone in your household is sick.

  7. Clean and disinfect soft surfaces: For soft items like couches, pillows, and curtains, follow the manufacturer's care instructions. Some items can be machine-washed or sprayed lightly with the Q-64 solution.

  8. Disinfect the air:

    • Consider using an air purifier with a HEPA filter to help remove airborne contaminants.
    • Proper ventilation, such as opening windows when possible, can also help improve indoor air quality.
  9. Maintain personal hygiene: Encourage good hygiene practices within your household, such as regular handwashing and covering coughs and sneezes.

  10. Dispose of cleaning materials: After you're done cleaning and disinfecting, remove and dispose of your gloves. Wash your hands thoroughly.

  11. Store Q-64 safely: Store the Q-64 Disinfectant in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and out of the reach of children.

  12. Regular maintenance: Continue to clean and disinfect surfaces frequently throughout the cold and flu season, especially when anyone in your household is feeling unwell or has symptoms of illness.

Remember that while Q-64 Disinfectant can help reduce the risk of illness, it's important to combine its use with other preventative measures, such as getting flu shots, maintaining good personal hygiene, and following local health guidelines to minimize the spread of cold and flu viruses.
