Household Cleaning Tips That Prevent Germs

Household cleaning is one of many ways to prevent germs and sickness

Household cleaning is one of many ways to prevent germs and sickness. With spring coming soon, it means that allergies will begin to flare up, and then you have to consider that children inadvertently bring bacteria home from school. Household cleaning is not only crucial for aesthetic value. Keeping yourself and your loved ones healthy and well factors into the reason why you should never neglect cleaning your home. Our residential cleaning services are reputable and reliable, and today we’d like to share with you some household cleaning tips that prevent germs. 

Cleaning Contact Points are Crucial

There are some places that people touch within a household more than others. In both homes and offices, you should know what the primary contact points are. Sites such as doorknobs, light switches, refrigerator handles, stair rails, remote controls, as well as faucet and toilet handles are places that multiple people touch regularly. Within a home and office setting, keyboards are also often a culprit behind germs and bacteria spreading. When was the last time you used a disinfectant wipe to sanitize your personal laptop or work computer?

Keep Your Cleaning Supplies Clean

Consider microfiber cleaning products. They are known for gathering dust and dirt more efficiently. Even with that being in mind, you still need to wash the towel and materials that you use to wipe down surfaces. Using cloths without wiping them down will indeed help to spread germs. 

Consider The Products That You and Your Loved Ones Share

Most homes have particular products that everyone uses within the household. Consider that warm, large, and comfy throw that everyone shares to keep warm. Clean the communal throw and clean it immediately if any of your loved ones are coughing, sneezing, or could be sick. Also, always keep tissues around so that when anyone is sick, they can cover their mouth.

Have a Serious Talk With Your Children

Little ones are known for spreading germs. Children should know about the importance of cleanliness and being hygienic, in and outside of the home. Here are a few helpful tips that you can share with children:

  • Teach them to wash their hands often and for 20 seconds at a time (getting them to sing their ABC’s as they do so will help them time it)
  • Advise them against sharing food and drinks with other children
  • Stress how crucial it is for them to cover their mouths while sneezing or coughing (this is one of the most challenging habits for children to break)
