The Truth About High-touch Surfaces

Germs…the invisible enemy. Well, not completely invisible, but we can’t see germs with our naked eyes. With COVID-19 cases climbing and flu season around the corner, individuals and families are worried about maintaining a germ-free environment. School is opening and many essential workers trudging to work with masks and hand sanitizer. How do you keep a healthy and safe home after bringing home germs?

It is almost impossible to keep an entire house completely germ-free. This is especially true when kids and essential workers are exposed to crowds. The best, practical approach is to reduce the number of germs in the home.

First, start with disinfecting high-touch areas. Using this method, you focus on the most touched areas and objects in the house because they might have bacteria and viruses. When these areas are properly sanitized on a frequent basis, you decrease the likelihood of infections.
