Our homes are like a miniature ecosystem. It has everything needed to sustain life, which includes germs and bacteria. Here are a few tips for making your home healthier.
In the kitchen, clean contact surfaces. Bacteria breeds on moisture and organic materials on your hands, which then gets deposited on faucets, light switches, cabinet pulls and refrigerator handles. To sanitize these surfaces, you should use a disinfectant spray. The spray should stay on the surface for at least 10 minutes.
Use a hands-free trash can. This can eliminate contact germs. Get rid of those dish rags. They are full of germs. Use a microfiber sponge instead. Clean your sink drains weekly with a bio-cleanser to remove harmful bacteria from your sink.
The bathroom is a prime location for mold to grow. To reduce the moisture and humidity in your shower or bath, leave the exhaust fan running for 20 minutes after each use. Switching from aerosol cleaners to a dry steamer can zap mold before it has time to grow.
In the living room, have a no-shoes policy. Shoes can track all sorts of toxins into your home. Using these simple tips can help make your home a healthier environment for you and your family.
