Prevent the Flu by Keeping Your Home Clean with D’s Cleaning Service
With the flu season here and most likely staying for a good while, many people are looking into ways to prevent the flu. While practicing good habits everywhere you go, such as washing your hands and not touching your mouth is good, protecting your family from the flu starts at home. Since you spend most of your time at home, you need to make sure it’s clean and that you are practicing the healthy habits there most of all.
Keep a Completely Clean Home
Germs, viruses, and bacteria tend to collect on the items we use the most every day. These places are the flu virus’s ideal spot to lurk and wait for you to pick it up, which ends with you being out of commission for a couple of weeks. To help protect your family and yourself from catching the flu, you’ll need to clean these hots spots frequently to attack and defeat those dangerous viruses.
- Door Handles
- Toilets and Toilet Handles
- Sinks and Faucet Handles
- Fridge Handles
- Desks and Computers
- Remote Controls
Washing towels frequently and disinfecting hard surfaces that people touch often are some of the best ways to prevent the flu from spreading to your whole family. If you have trouble cleaning your home daily because of your busy schedule, consider hiring a professional cleaning service like D’s Cleaning Service to help. D’s Cleaning Service can come to clean your home when you need and just in time for flu season.
Practice Healthy Habits
A clean home is a great start in preventing your family from catching the flu, but you’ll also want to make sure your family is practicing healthy habits as well. As stress has a major impact in weakening your immune system, you’ll want your family to stay relaxed, especially around the holidays. Also make sure your family gets plenty of sleep, exercise, and vitamins and minerals. Overall, these habits will help support your family’s immune system so it can fight off any germs it comes into contact with.
Use Flu Disinfectant
When cleaning your home and maybe even your workspace too, you’ll want to make sure the products you are using are effective against the flu. Only certain cleaners are flu disinfectants and can remove the virus from surfaces. Be sure to check which cleaners you are using for maximum protection.

Wash Your Hands Often
Washing your hands often during the flu season is a must to keep the germs at bay. Not only do you need to wash your hands often, but you need to wash them with soap. Soap is essential in helping to clean germs off of your skin. You don’t even need to worry about reaching for anti-bacterial soap. In fact, the FDA issued an article stating that anti-bacterial soap is no more effective in killing germs and can actually cause problems. If you’re wondering what kind of soap to use, any regular soap in your local market will do the trick.
When flu season is in full bloom, cleaning your home and hands as well as practicing healthy habits is a must for both you and your family. Visit our blog for more cleaning tips and call D’s Cleaning Service for help in keeping your home clean in order to prevent the flu this year.
