As flu season quickly approaches, it’s essential to be proactive and take steps to protect ourselves and our loved ones. One effective way to reduce the risk of infection is by diligently disinfecting high-touch surfaces in the home and workplace.
To help you combat the flu this year, we've identified the top 5 high-touch surfaces you should prioritize when sanitizing your space.
Doorknobs and Handles
Doorknobs and handles are among the most frequently touched surfaces in any setting, making them prime candidates for transmitting the flu virus. To decontaminate them, simply spray our award winning Multi-Surface Disinfectant & Cleaner and wipe clean with our Anti-Microbial Cloths, killing 99.9% of germs on contact.
Light switches are another often overlooked high-touch surface. Our Heavy Duty Foaming Wipes are the perfect partner for cleaning any common surface, tackling harmful flu pathogens, grease and grime. Go through your home during your cleaning routine and disinfect each light switch in the most regularly trafficked rooms.
Commonly used countertops like the kitchen island or a work desk can harbor the flu virus. Make sure you take the time to frequently spray and wipe these surfaces down after each use to eliminate any dangerous germs or bacteria that may be lurking.
Television remotes, game controllers, smartphones, keyboards, and other handheld devices frequently shared among family members can be hotspots for the flu. Wipe these electronic items down thoroughly, cleaning the buttons and crevices before allowing them to air dry.
Bathrooms are notorious breeding grounds for germs, and flu viruses are no exception. Scrub each surface including faucets, counters, mirrors, and toilet handles to wash away soap scum, mildew, and, most importantly, germs to maintain a hygienic environment.
By taking the appropriate precautions and prioritizing the cleanliness of high-touch surfaces, you can help reduce the risk of transmission for a safe, happy, and healthier season ahead.
