If viruses get into your home you can pretty sure you and all other members will get sick. Follow these tips to enjoy a virus-free home.
Germs like to build up in sheets and blankets. Wash your bed linens and sheet once a week and clean your bedroom. Keep your towels clean and fresh to avoid transferring germs.
You should clean your cleaning tools every now and then. Otherwise you will contaminate everything you’re trying to clean. These include sponges, washcloths and dishrags.
Items people use a lot are more likely to be contaminated. Wipe down door handles, cabinet pulls, tables, remote controls, phones, keyboard and faucets.
If a family member gets the flu or any other disease, you can’t really kick them out of the house. Instead that person can use disposable cups, utensils and towels to reduce the risk of infecting everyone else.
This might be expensive but it’s worth it. Invest in high-efficiency filters to keep mold spores, pet dander and other bacteria outside. It is recommended by the American Lung Association. Alternatively, just keep hand sanitizers around the house so they stay at hand-reach whenever someone needs them.
