School’s Out!

Keep the Germs Out Too

School may be taking a summer break, but that doesn’t mean germs are. Between springtime allergens and all those upcoming events celebrating the season, it’s time to get some summer disinfecting on your to-do list. JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care can help.

Summer Disinfecting Tips

While the warming temperatures may make it more motivating to head outdoors, increased humidity also invites more germs and bacteria to the party. Whether you’re about to clear out the school supplies, host a backyard barbecue, or go on vacation, keeping your living space clean and disinfected is crucial for a healthy and enjoyable summer. Here are some tips to help you maintain a germ-free space.

  1. Focus on High-Touch Surfaces. Think of all the items you and your family touch every day. From the backpack and school supplies you may be packing away to the doorknobs, light switches, and remotes around your home, you could be harboring a lot of germs. Make it a habit to disinfect these areas regularly, especially if you’re tracking in dirt from all your outdoor adventures.
  2. Outdoor Gear. Now that you’re opening up the pool, dusting off the picnic table, and breaking out the lawn furniture from the garage, make sure these items are disinfected before they grace your garden oasis. When exposed to moisture, these outdoor items become breeding grounds for bacteria and mold.
  3. Kitchen Cleanliness. No matter if your main summer kitchen is indoors or out, anywhere food prep happens is a hotspot for germs. Clean and disinfect surfaces frequently, especially grills, cutting boards, countertops, and sinks. Always wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly, even if it’s coming straight from your garden.
  4. Laundry Hygiene. Summer means sweaty clothes and damp towels. Wash these items promptly to prevent bacterial growth while waiting for laundry day. Use hot water when possible and add a disinfectant like bleach or a laundry sanitizer. Don’t forget to regularly disinfect the baskets and hampers too.
  5. Air Out Your Home. Improve ventilation by opening windows and to allow fresh air to circulate. Use fans and air purifiers to help maintain good indoor air quality. But remember to regularly clean or replace air filters to ensure efficiency and that you’re not circulating dust and allergens.

While cleaning may be the last thing on your summer break mind, it’s important to stay on top of chores to create a healthier living environment. You don’t have to do it alone!
