The Maids: Protecting Family from the Flu Epidemic

Cleaning experts from The Maids offer tips to protect your family from the flu. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this flu season is more severe than most, so find out how to reduce germs and stay healthy this flu season.

Omaha, NE (PRWEB) January 13, 2015 - According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this flu season is more severe than most. Due to mutations in the virus, flu shots are less effective, leaving families susceptible to the disease. The Maids offers these tips to cut down on the spread of germs to keep families happy and healthy.

  • Get a flu shot. According to the CDC this is still the strongest defense against the virus.
  • Wash hands regularly with warm soapy water. Scrub for at least 20 seconds. Have young children? Have them sing their ABCs while they scrub for a fun way to pass the time. Carry hand sanitizer with you for those times you can’t wash with soap and water.
  • Be sure to disinfect commonly touched surfaces in your home such as phones, door knobs, remotes and light switches. Germs can live on these surfaces for up to 48 hours. Be sure to follow the proper instructions when using disinfectants.
  • Wash items such as towels and bedding regularly with hot water to kill germs. If someone in the home is sick, be sure to wash these items before they are shared.
  • If multiple toothbrushes are kept in the same container or bathroom, you might want to consider replacing all of them.
  • If someone in your home has been ill, it’s a good idea to give your whole house a deep scrubbing, making sure to disinfect all hard surfaces on which germs might live.
