How to 100% format all my drives?

Noogles
I've heard that it's possible for a virus to still be left on a drive even after format, so because of paranoia that I have, I've decided that I want to 100% wipe out all the data on all of my drives. Could you please tell me how to do this? I don't have too much technical knowledge, so I'm sorry if I said something absurd.
Thank you!

What I meant by theoretical is that the document doesn't say whether or not any viruses that exploit this area exist.
