Cold and flu season in the United States is typically at its highest between December and February. Your home and office are a petri dish of germs and the chance of exposure during the peak of cold & flu season is high. One of the most successful ways to control the spread of germs in your home or business is to hire a professional cleaning service to keep the interior of your property spotlessly clean, sanitized and free of germs. The professional cleaning technicians at Nadia’s House Cleaning are the experts when it comes to eliminating germs and disease causing bacteria from your home. Nadia’s House Cleaning provides both residential and commercial janitorial office cleaning services to keep you healthy and germ free during the holiday season and beyond.

The cleaning professionals at Nadia’s House Cleaning recommend the following cleaning tips between their professional house and office cleaning services to help keep your home or business free of germs and bacteria.

1. Wash your Hands and Wipe Down Surfaces Regularly – The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends routinely wiping down all frequently touched surfaces that can spread flu and cold viruses through person to person contact. This includes handles on doors, light switches, faucets, refrigerator door handles and remote controls. In the office, pay particular attention to keeping keyboards, phones and other desk accessories such as staplers and tape dispensers regularly wiped down. Be sure to keep bathrooms stocked with antibacterial soap as well as plenty of disposable paper towels. Keep alcohol based hand sanitizers and cleaners nearby for a quick clean up. Pay particular attention to the backs of your hands and underneath your fingernails. Your hands have a habit of finding their way into your mouth, as well as your nose, and eyes without you even realizing it — all of these are areas where germs can enter the body and cause infection.
2. Importance of Personal Cleanliness – an adult can spread the flu virus a full 24 hours before developing symptoms and up to an additional seven days after becoming sick. Children can spread the virus for an even longer period of time. By practicing good hygiene and keeping surfaces regularly sanitized you can decrease the risk infection spreading to you and your family members.
3. Prevent the Flu from Spreading – if you do contract the flu virus, stay home from work to avoid spreading germs. If you are in a position that you can’t avoid contact with other people there are some things that you can do to help limit the transmission to others –
a. Cough or sneeze into your elbow or even better; a tissue and properly dispose of it in a trashcan and then wash your hands immediately after
b. Wash hands and wipe down surfaces regularly
c. Wear a facemask around high risk family members such as pregnant women, children under the age of 5 and seniors ages 65 and older
