How to Clean Your RV During COVID-19

Michael Balle Hansen by Michael Balle Hansen

Now is the time to be extra thorough with your cleaning. 

Based off the CDC’s
cleaning and disinfecting your home guidelines I’ve created a quick guide for you to follow to ensure your RV is clean and safe.


Required Supplies

You’ll need the following items:

  • Reusable or disposable gloves. These are the typical gloves you would normally use for cleaning.
  • Disinfectant.
  • Paper Towels.
  • Bleach.
  • Mask


Step 1 - Cleaning

During the cleaning step we clean away dirt and germs as we would usually do. This step isn’t to kill any potential viruses. It simply removes large amounts of them which lowers the risk of infection. 


Put on your mask and ensure you have proper ventilation. Then start cleaning as you would usually do. If the surfaces allow for this you can use a diluted bleach solution, but of course be aware that bleach isn’t good on all types of surfaces so you would need to research this before hand. A good mix is 5 tablespoons of bleach per gallon of water.


Soft Surfaces

These are surfaces like carpeted floor, drapes and rugs. Clean these using soap and water and then launder them if possible.



Follow the manufacturers instruction on cleaning these. This is important so that you don’t damage your devices.


Clothing, Towels and such

Launder these items according to the manufacturers instructions. Use the warmest possible water they allow for. Do not shake the laundry to limit spread!


Step 2 – Disinfection

Once you’re done cleaning then its time to disinfect. At this point you just use your disinfectant on all the surfaces. Make sure you let it sit as it takes a bit of time to work. It is especially important to disinfect electronics like phones since we use these so much and especially if they are shared amongst family members
