Cold and flu season is no laughing matter. When the weather outside grows colder, forcing people inside, everywhere suddenly becomes an incubator for germs and bacteria. Catching a cold or the flu can cause misery in your family as you miss work days, school days, family time, and more. So how do you protect your family? Believe it or not, by keeping your Lansdale, PA, home and body clean and by hiring a carpet cleaning company like ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration, you can give your household a fighting chance.
Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth
Many people touch parts of their face throughout the day without thinking about it. During cold and flu season, however, this is a poor move. When you touch these vulnerable parts of your body, not only are you spreading germs and bacteria, but they’re able to get into your system. While it might be hard, do you best to avoid touching your face. If you think you might, use antibacterial wipes or liquid to keep your hands clean. Wash your hands when you can.
Clean Your Bedding Frequently
It’s important to wash your bed sheets regularly. Your bedding can host bacteria, viruses, and other nasty things, meaning you can go to sleep on a bed of germs. This is especially important if someone in the family has been ill. Wash the bedding right away and wash your hands after touching it
Keep Your Home Healthy with Carpet Cleaning
Germs, bacteria, dust, dander, and other irritants can find their way into your carpets and can’t be removed with regular vacuuming. Carpet cleaning not only extends the lifespan of your carpets, but can help keep your home healthy by removing contaminants from your carpeting!
