Maintain a clean, healthy home all winter long!

A tidy home isn’t just visually appealing. It can also prevent the spread of germs that cause illnesses such as the flu. Maintaining a healthy home is particularly important during the winter season, and even more so if you have small children that spend their days at school or daycare. This winter, learn how to keep your home germ-free with the following tips.  

Address all Touchpoints

Some viruses can linger on surfaces for minutes, hours, and even days. One way to limit the germs in your home is to wipe all touchpoints with a homemade cleaning product or natural product. Touchpoints consist of doorknobs, faucets, television remotes, railings, and more. Walk through your home with a cleaning agent and microfiber cloth, and gently clean all of the most common touchpoints.

Deep Clean the Kitchen

Homeowners spend a considerable amount of their time in the kitchen. It’s the heart of the home, after all, and it’s important that it’s a cleanly space. Sanitize the kitchen island, wipe down the counters, and scrub the interior of the sink. Replace your sponges, if need be, and wash all dish rags or kitchen towels. Wipe the exterior of the refrigerator with a cleaning product and cloth, as well as the exterior of the oven and microwave.

Watch Out for Allergens

Spending more time at home during winter can be relaxing, but it can also increase a homeowner’s sensitivity to allergens. Fireplaces and heating units can general dust and other allergens easily. To limit exposure to dust and more, wash your wedding frequently. Watch out for mold and mildew that might accumulate in the bathroom. Vacuum your carpets at least once a week, or more depending on your allergies.
