Quick Tips for Cleaning and Disinfecting During Cold and Flu Season

The dreaded cold and flu season is upon us, and keeping you and your loved ones healthy is of utmost importance. While hiring a cleaning service to disinfect your home is a great solution, there are plenty of ways you can eliminate germs on your own between cleanings. Follow these quick and efficient cleaning tips to help keep those nasty germs out of your home

Clean Surfaces Often

Surfaces such as door handles, faucets, appliances, remote controls, computers, and toilets are all breeding grounds for bacteria because they are touched multiple times per day. During cold and flu season, pay special attention to these areas and wipe them down frequently with your favorite disinfectant. This is the first tip for keeping your home as clean as possible and preventing the germs from spreading from person to person.

Use Safe Cleaning Supplies

There are many types of cleaning products on the market, but some contain harsh chemicals that can be damaging to your health. Look for biodegradable products that disinfect without causing dangerous side effects. Biodegradable products are made out of materials that break down quickly and safely without causing harm to humans or the environment, which is why we favor non-toxic brands such as Mrs. Meyers, The 7th Generation and Method. Their bottles are also made from recycled materials and are fully recyclable. Win, win!

Disinfect More Than Just Surfaces

While it's important to wipe down surfaces during cold and flu season, it's equally important to disinfect shared items in the household. Things like blankets, hand towels, and dishes are all items that need to be cleaned thoroughly when a member of the household is sick. Be sure to wash all bedding at least once a week. Change out hand towels daily, or switch to paper towels when someone is sick. Wash dishes in hot, soapy water, or use the sanitize option on the dishwasher.
