Because of this awful Covid-19 pandemic, most of us are spending more time at home than we have in a very long time, and we want to know that our indoor living spaces are as healthy and sanitary as possible. Along with your usual cleaning routine, following are few tips we have for you that you’ll want to keep in mind to increase your home’s overall hygiene.
Never Wear Shoes in Your Home
Did you know that your shoes hide and carry a lot of germs? They follow you wherever you go, including places like public restrooms, grassy areas where dogs have “taken care of business,” parking lots, restaurants, etc.. When you bring them into your home, you are inviting tons of unwanted allergens and bacteria into your space. To increase the safety and health in your house, begin a policy to leave all shoes at the front door upon entry. Better yet, when you get home spray them with a disinfectant, like Lysol.
Eliminate the Dirt, Bacteria, and Dust Mites in Your Bedroom
Most people wash their sheets once a week. Experts recommend laundering your linens in the hottest water possible to kill dust mites. Besides your sheets, you should be cleaning your pillows, blankets, and duvets every few months as well. This eliminates hidden germs, dirt, and–of course–those infamous, allergy-triggering dust mites.
Clean your Tech Devices
Not only are you constantly touching your phone and other tech devices throughout the day, many of us place them down on counters and other surfaces that who knows what have recently placed on them. These items are covered in germs that can be dangerous and cause you to get sick. Each day, it is wise to sanitize these items with disinfecting wipes so that they are clean when you reach for them.
Pay Extra Attention to your Bathrooms
Your bathroom contains the most germs of any room in your house. Each time that you finish washing, dry your bath or shower walls so that germs and viruses have no place to thrive. Also, experts advise homeowners to disinfect the bathroom floor once a week and to flush the toilet with the lid closed. This keeps germs and bacteria to a minimum.
Install Indoor Air Quality Products for Home & Business
When you add indoor air quality products, you can greatly increase the quality of your home’s air. These units lower the amount of dust, dander, seasonal allergens, and other pollutants that are swirling around your home environment. Odors can be eliminated as well.
