Battling Back-to-School Germs

August 16, 2017

When your kids head back to school in the Pine Mountain, Georgia, area, they often pick up germs and bugs from other children who come to school when they’re sick. Help your little ones battle these pesky illnesses by keeping your home extra clean and healthy.

Encourage Good Hygiene

From a young age, teach your children about the importance of good hygiene habits. Regular hand washing can help keep germs at bay, especially if your kids wash their hands before and after eating, after using the restroom, and after playing with friends. It’s important to lather and scrub for at least 20 seconds to kill bacteria. Use a colorful foaming hand soap to help children see that the soap is lathered evenly on all parts of the hand.

Indoor Air Quality

When your little one is fighting a bug, it’s important that your home offers a healthy atmosphere for healing. Poor indoor air quality can cause a number of health problems, including cold and flu symptoms that will force your body to put more effort into fighting. Avoid worsening of symptoms by having your air ducts cleaned regularly, which can make a big difference in the overall quality of air you breathe.

Mold can grow due to excess moisture in the ducts, which often leads to allergic symptoms and worsening of asthma and other breathing conditions. During a duct cleaning, your technician may use sanitizing spray to kill spores and improve the overall indoor air quality.

Keep It Comfortable

Kids need to get enough sleep so their bodies can rest, recharge, and fight illnesses. When your home is too warm or too cold, it’s hard to get comfortable and fall asleep. Make sure your heating and cooling system is operating at peak efficiency by bringing in a technician at least once a year for routine maintenance. During a maintenance service, the technician will look for signs of damage and clean components to improve airflow.

Keep your family healthy by scheduling an indoor air quality check and tuneup with Indoor Solutions Inc. at 706-225-8241.
