As a paraplegic female, wheelchair sterilizing and sanitizing for Coronavirus prevention is an important topic. Today, I will share how to sanitize my wheelchair and keep everything properly disinfected. Many people mistakenly think that cleaning your wheelchair is the same as disinfecting, but that’s not correct. Cleaning removes dirt and germs from most surfaces, but it doesn’t actually kill the germs. When we remove germs, we are just reducing the actual number of germs, and therefore, lowering the overall risk of catching and spreading infections. When we disinfect, sterilize and sanitize a wheelchair, however, we are killing microorganisms such as bacteria. We accomplish this by using chemicals, and essentially decreasing of the risk of catching and spreading infectious diseases. So, you have to clean and disinfect your wheelchair regularly, through a process of sanitizing and sterilizing. As I mentioned, as a paraplegic female, wheelchair cleaning, sterilizing, sanitizing and disinfecting during Covid-19 and Corona Virus is essential for safety and maintaining good health.
