Domestic cleaning to tackle summer flu
So, what should you do around the home to reduce the spread of this inconvenient virus? Well, there are several things you should clean to keep on top of your health and hygiene. These include:
- Cleaning kitchen surfaces and food prep areas- these are the perfect surfaces for viruses to hang out on, as they can easily infect a new human host when preparing food, or even eating. That’s why sanitizing these surfaces is essential to keep on top of the spread of colds and viruses. You should be extra vigilant about this when someone in the household is ill, and clean before preparing any food.
- Towels- towels can become covered in germs very quickly. And if you have any shared towels, like those in the kitchen or bathroom, you will want to wash these as regularly as possible, otherwise its highly likely for the virus to spread.
- Light switches and door handles- these are two objects that are touched by every member of your household on a regular basis. And as such, they will need to be cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis, if someone has a cold or the flu.
