Disinfecting high-touch surfaces is an important tactic for reducing the transfer of germs. To disinfect door hardware, Allegion recommends following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines under “How to clean and disinfect,” which outline easy-to-prepare bleach or alcohol solutions for disinfecting your home or your building facility.

To do this, you simply wipe surfaces gently with disinfectant, and do not spray or immerse. Per CDC guidelines, do not wipe the surfaces dry. Instead, allow them to air dry to give the disinfectant time to work effectively. Use these tips on how to properly clean and disinfect door hardware.
