Fighting Germs Around the Home

A Clean Home is a Healthy Family

Winter is coming up quickly and we all know what that means: germs. Yes, that dreaded five letter word that seems so much more prevalent in winter months. For years the question has been asked, why do viruses spread so much faster in winter than in summer?

There are different theories as to why germs seem to spread faster in winter months.

  1. Most of us are stuck indoors in tight quarters.
  2. The lack of sunlight makes a person lose vitamin D, an important vitamin to our immune system.
  3. People touch surfaces, then another touches the same surface, and another and another, until it spreads.

Then everyone brings that home. They touch cabinets, open drawers, pet their dogs or cats, use the television remote, and the germs continue to spread. Cold and Influenza or worse, the dreaded stomach bug, begins to spread from person to person. People miss work, children miss school.

There are a few important steps to protecting yourself and your family's health.

  1. Wash your hands. Do not touch food, or your face unless the digits are clean.
  2. Take your vitamins. Vitamin D is an important immune booster we lose with the lack of sun.
  3. If your child is ill, do not send them to school. Not only can they infect other children, but with their immunity low, they can be at risk for other secondary infections. Wait 24 hours after the last serious symptom.

Most importantly, maintain a clean house. It is so important to keep a clean living environment to slow the spread of germs. Not to mention the benefits for those with allergies, asthma, or other breathing or immunity compromising issues. Daily spot cleaning and weekly dusting is fine, but there are nooks and crannies that we just can't seem to reach or maybe wouldn't think of cleaning.
