As a house cleaning service, we know this is one of the most important pieces of advice. Your hands impact everything. So the cleaner you keep them, the less likelihood of having them leave germs and bacteria behind.
Encourage your kids to wash their hands regularly. Scrubbing them with soap and water is the first line of defense. While it’s a good practice to wash hands before you eat, also encourage everyone in your family to wash hands whenever they return home. If you don’t bring the germs and bacteria in, washing them away upon reentry, your risk of illness decreases immensely.
Contrary to what many advertisements suggest, it doesn’t take fancy sprays and harsh chemicals to make everything clean. A simple solution of vinegar and water is enough to get rid of the bad stuff in a good way. Do you really want tiny hands touching harsh chemicals left behind by sprays and ending up in your child’s mouth? That can be just as bad as the bacteria in some cases.
Keep It Clean
We all get busy. Especially this time of year, when school activities occur all the time, and you’re always on the run. It’s easy to assume cleaning can wait another day, until a day turns into a week. Leaving germs and bacteria sit in your home only gives them more opportunity to thrive.
Hiring a house cleaning service makes this an easy step. It gives you regularity with your house cleaning, meaning you only have to worry about the touch-ups in between.
While our regular service ensures the most crucial areas of your home are clean, it’s up to you to take care of the rest. At a minimum, wipe down the kitchen counters and ensure the floor is free from spills. Ensure you clean areas where meat and poultry are cut immediately. Clean the toilet seat regularly.
