It is astonishing how many people cough and sneeze without covering their mouths!
Members of our family have come down with the cold or flu even though we take every proven precaution there is. Hand washing with soap and water, alcohol based hand sanitizer after touching any surface. Not touching our face, nose or mouth when out. And we ALWAYS cover our mouth when sneezing. (The inside of the elbow comes in handy for that!)
Just think about how many people in your own place of work have come into contact with these cold and flu germs. Having a competent cleaning service will help keep those days off work to a minimum. Our service takes every precaution to keep flat surfaces clean and sanitized during this season.
Key spots that you should pay extra attention to when trying to disinfect after sick people have come in to contact with are:
Light switches - Easily one of the most touched surfaces!
Desk tops, table tops, counter tops, remote controls, computer key boards, door knobs, faucets of sinks and tubs, toilet handles and trash cans.
Switch out a/c filters and leave doors and windows open for a bit to circulate the air.
Throw out your tooth brushes.
Alcohol or bleach based wipes are quick and easy ways to clean some of these items. You can also use a disinfectant spray that states that it helps kill viruses that cause cold and flu.
Cleaning up after the flu is one of the most important things to do. Is it really worth the risk of getting it again or passing it off to a family member.
