Winter cleaning through the flu and winter illness season

Winter cleaning through the flu and winter illness season is something that you need to start thinking about. Particularly, as we’re now in to Autumn, the darker nights are drawing in and temperatures are starting to decline.

Don’t worry, there are things that you can do to reduce the risk to your home or business through winter cleaning, including:

  • Clean first! Yes there is a difference between cleaning and disinfecting. Clean first to remove the dirt, dust, debris, Disinfect after to remove bacteria, viruses and germs
  • Do it regularly – especially the ‘high touch points’ (the areas in the property that are most commonly touched, things like remotes, switches, handles etc)
  • Use effective products – Check the product label for what they are effective in cleaning against. Not all products can disinfect common viruses
  • Follow the manufacturer instructions – To get the best from a product, you should read the label for how to use the product most effectively
  • Wear gloves – Protect your hands from dirt, germs and cleaning products by wearing suitable gloves
  • Use microfibre cloths, not sponges – That’s because they have multiple surfaces to give you better contact with your surface
