Preventing Cold And Flu
With the weather changing and temperatures falling the flu and cold season begin. Many people are aware of the way cold and flu spreads, through coughing sneezing and other physical contact. However, people might not be aware of germs surviving weeks on surfaces and on items we use on a daily basis.
It’s important to sanitise phones, light switches, door handles and anything we touch many times a day without even thinking. These can be easily cleaned tho with a sanitiser spray or cleaning wipe. But going deeper still, what about fabrics and carpet?
Some reports suggest that bacteria and viruses can last for days even weeks on textiles. These include chairs, pillows, carpets, rugs, sofas and beds. We are all used to washing our bed linen, changing the sheets and pillows, but what about your carpet or sofa?
Getting your carpet and upholstery professionally cleaned can reduce transmission and keep the flu and cold virus at bay.
Using hot water extraction, sanitiser pre-spray and chemical cleaning agents combined can kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses that can make us ill. Plus this method also removes stains, spillages and brings back that like-new appearance.
So let’s all stay cold and flu-free at home this year.
