Cleaning and Disinfecting? Don't Forget Your Carpets

Cleaning and Disinfecting? Don’t Forget Your Carpets.

Cleaning and disinfecting your home are two of the most important things you can do to help keep your family healthy. These separate tasks involve removing visible and invisible debris from surfaces and then eliminating bacteria. You’ll use soap and water to clean and chemicals, like Clorox wipes, to disinfectant. The CDC recommends cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched household surfaces as well as in high-traffic areas daily.

Clean and disinfect anything you handle throughout the day. That includes your PC or laptop components, gaming controller or consoles, remote controls, and smartphones and tablets. Doorknobs, faucet handles, hand sprayers (sink or shower), and soap dispensers should be wiped down as well. Remember to check the labels to ensure the safe and correct use of all cleaning products. Some may need to sit on a surface for several minutes to be effective.

Don’t Forget Your Carpets

In addition to routine household cleaning, it’s a good idea to consider professional services, such as carpet cleaning. You can even check it off your spring-cleaning to-do list. By removing allergens and pollutants from the fibers of your carpet, carpet cleaning helps create of a healthier living environment for you and your loved ones. It also helps to eliminate stains and odors. Carpet manufacturers recommend having this done every 12 to 18 months, and more often in high traffic houses, or homes with asthma or allergy sufferers.
