 Tips for Properly Disinfecting Your RV



Disinfecting your RV is always essential if you want to make sure that the surfaces inside it are free of bacteria and viruses. With the current global pandemic that we're experiencing, it's more important than ever to make sure that your RV is disinfected regularly. Here are some tips to help you take care of this cleaning job the right way.

Wear Gloves

You always want to wear gloves when you're disinfecting RV. You don't want to come into contact with any pathogens, but it's also important that you protect your hands from any harmful chemicals that might be in the cleaning products that you're using. You can change your gloves frequently if they're getting dirty. You can also put on a mask if you want to be extra careful not to inhale anything harmful.

Use the Right Products

There are all kinds of cleaning products on the market these days. Some of them are made out of natural cleaning agents that are very safe to have around pets and children. Unfortunately, many of these natural cleaners aren't strong enough to kill a virus like COVID-19. If you want to make your concoction, mix equal parts of bleach and water in a spray bottle. You can also find store-bought products that are effective enough to kill 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria. Spray on the various surfaces you're cleaning and then wipe off with a paper towel or soft cloth.

Soft Surfaces

Fabric surfaces should be cleaned with very hot water. If you can remove a cover or curtain of some sort, you can place them in a clean washing machine. If you can't remove the item, use a cleaning product recommended for cloth or soft surfaces.


You don't want to neglect things like your dashboard, cell phone, GPS, or infotainment system. Just be sure not to spray your cleaning products directly onto the electronic components of your RV. You can spray the rag or paper towel you're using, and use that material to wipe down things like buttons and screens.

It's important to remember that cleaning a surface is not the same thing as disinfecting it. Cleaning will remove dirt and grime from your RV, but disinfecting it will eliminate viruses and bacteria.
