New Year, new flu.
We doubt that's on anyone's list of New Year's resolutions! It's hard enough to get back into the swing of things after the holidays without a round of flu or cold going through your house. If you're looking to start off 2020 well, here are some things you can do to keep the cold and flu out of your home.
Become BFFs with sanitizer
Cold and flu germs can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours after the virus has landed on them. If you think about all the traffic your home's surfaces have gotten over the holiday season, you may already be running for the Lysol. Set a daily routine of wiping down all countertops or places where you eat, and set aside time every week to clean doorknobs, handles, and faucets throughout your home.
Germs can also be tracked in and spread across your floors, so regularly clean them with a sanitizing product made for your specific flooring type. For a super fresh start to the year, schedule an appointment for your local Zerorez® team to deep clean your carpets, tile floors, and area rugs. These cleaning services all use the Zerorez® patented cleaning process that includes Powered Water®, which will leave your floors free of germs without a trace of harsh chemicals or odors.
Give your respiratory system a fighting chance
We all know that coughing and sneezing are one of the main ways the flu and colds are passed along. It's why hand washing and teaching children to cover their mouths is so important. But have you thought about what happens to those airborne germs once they're released? You can clean your hands and surfaces of your home, but if you forget about your home's air ducts, you're still leaving yourself at risk.
Having your air ducts cleaned regularly (even seasonally) helps rid your home of a hidden build-up of allergens, germs, and pathogens and keep you and your family healthier throughout the year. At Zerorez®, our air duct cleaning service delivers the most effective air duct cleaning available by using a powerful whip line sent up each duct line from the furnace towards the vent coupled with a vacuum system using over 15,000 cfm. Once clean, a botanically-derived cleaner is sprayed throughout the entire system and home. This will eliminate bacteria, germs, and viruses while releasing ZERO toxins into the home.
Give yourself and your family a fighting chance this cold and flu season and get your home protected against the millions of germs just waiting to attack. Call Zerorez® today and let us help you safeguard your home!
