When it comes to your home, you want everyone to stay healthy for as long as possible. The best way to do that is to reduce microbes in your home. Different types of germs cause different illnesses. So, it may be hard to target every single kind of microbe. However, when it comes to the health of your family, some is better than none. With Extreme Microbial Technologies, we have proven equipment to help you combat microbes in your home. Even with the equipment, you still have steps to take to reduce microbes in your home.

Open Windows

Did you know that fresh air has actual health benefits? By opening your window, you increase the ventilation in your home. Increased ventilation in your home means there’s more air movement. If someone in your home recently got sick, you want those germs gone as soon as possible. Disinfecting the area with a disinfectant and opening windows will help kill the germs around your home. Even if it’s for a short period of time, you’re helping your family stay healthy.

Change Cleaning Cloths Between Rooms

Do you use a cleaning cloth when you clean certain areas of your home? Make sure you change cloths whenever you begin cleaning a different room. After all, you don’t want the germs from one room to go to a different room. That doesn’t effectively get rid of microbes in your home. Instead, when you use a new cloth per room, you ensure the germs you removed in one location don’t go to a different area of your home.

Clean the Inside of Your Fridge Monthly

Sometimes, food spillage in your fridge happens. If that’s the case, you need to clean the spill immediately to avoid microbes spreading to the foods in your fridge. Even if you don’t have food spillage, it’s still recommended that you clean your fridge once a month. That way, if microbes grew and you didn’t know about it, they won’t do as much damage as if you didn’t clean at all.

Disinfect Cleaning Tools

We’ve already discussed how you need to use one cleaning rag per room. But you also need to make sure your larger cleaning tools get sanitized in between usage. Mops and brooms are larger, meaning they have more surface available for germs to grow on. By sanitizing them after a cleaning session, you know germs won’t spread on the surface and won’t spread to different areas the next time you use it.

Wash Higher Services First

When you clean, start with all higher surfaces. When you do this, you kill germs higher up first. By killing higher up germs first, you ensure that the area stays sanitized for a longer period of time.

Reducing microbes in your home takes time. However, it’s worth the time since you’re keeping your family safe. By combining both the tips above and our microbial-reducing equipment, your family will stay healthier because their germ exposure is lower.
