Prepare your Home for This Flu Season
At Stanley Steemer, your health and the health of your loved ones is our main priority! That’s why we do our best to help you prepare for the flu season. Getting flu vaccines and stocking up on the right supplies may not be enough. You can prepare your homes as well.
Why is it so important to prepare your home for the flu season? The flu virus is contagious, spreading through the air and through direct contact with a person or objects carrying the virus. Since it’s an airborne virus, it’s easy for it to get trapped in your home from the air you breathe to the bed you sleep in. Stanley Steemer recommends the following four areas of your home to be deeply cleaned to protect you and your family this flu season.
Stop the Flu from Spreading in your Home
- 1. Air Ducts: You can clean the air in your home by changing out your air filters and getting an air purifier as well as cleaning out all of the vents. The air vents in your home collect dust and dirt, as well as trapping and transporting germs and viruses throughout your home. Stanley Steemers keeps you air ducts free of dust and dirt that could be carrying the flu virus.
- 2. Carpets: The cleanliness of your carpet also helps make the air in your home cleaner for your family. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, cleaning your carpet regularly throughout the year can significantly increase the air quality in your home. The renowned Stanley Steemer carpet cleaning service keeps your carpet free of germs and bacteria that vacuum’s can’t get out.
- 3. Oriental & Area Rugs: The cleanliness of your area rugs have similar effects on the cleanliness of your air as your carpet. On average, homeowners clean their area rug once a year, which may not be enough since area rugs are one of the things that collect the most germs and bacteria in your home. Stanley Steemer service for oriental and area rugs is very similar to their carpet service that removes the hidden germs that vacuum’s can’t get out.
- 4. Furniture: The furniture in your home is the perfect host for the flu virus because your furniture is susceptible to dust accumulation, germs and stains. Keep your furniture free of the flu virus with Stanley
