A Clean Home = A Healthy Home – by Reflections Extreme Clean
You may wonder why the same colds, flus and nasty viruses keep going around in your household. The answer might be as simple as, it needs a good cleaning! During the cold and flu season people spread germs by coughing, sneezing, touching door handles, water faucets and other hard surfaces in your house. Germs can last on these surfaces for hours and even weeks! Cleaning these surfaces often, can help prevent the spread illnesses in your home.
Kitchens can be one of the worst areas in your home when it comes to getting sick. Keeping your kitchen clean will help protect your family from bacteria and other germs. Raw foods like chicken can leave behind germs that can make you sick as they carry salmonella, E coli and other bacteria. These bacteria can be life-threatening for anyone with a compromised immune system.
Food particles left behind in cupboards can attract insects, mice and rats that can carry disease. Wiping up with a dirty sponge won’t do the trick. You must clean and disinfect the kitchen after food preparation so that no bacteria or germs are left behind.
If you have allergies you know how bad mold can be. Mold grows in damp areas in your home like bathrooms and basements. Mold triggers allergies, lung-related problems, cold like symptoms and more. Clean and dry areas like showers and bathrooms to reduce and prevent the growth of mold.
Dust is another contributor to allergies and like all home owners, you know it’s one of the hardest things to keep on top of. To minimize dust, you must dust, sweep and vacuum on a regular basis. If you can, get rid of unneeded items in your house that attract dust. Dust mites that live in dust can also carry unwanted germs.
You might not think of clutter as a heath issue, but when someone trips and falls over clutter scattered throughout your home and winds up needing an emergency room visit, you’ll realize how important an organized home is in preventing accidents. Boxes, toys, rugs, laundry and other items left on the floor can present a serious tripping hazard. Some people are better at organizing than others and sometimes we find that we’ve collected to many unneeded and unwanted items in our home. Cleaning and organizing and deciding what to get rid of can be stressful but with the help and advice of a professional house cleaner, it can be accomplished. A clutter-free home helps prevents injuries and makes your home more inviting.
A clean and organized home can help you relax and stay healthier.
