laundry and washing machineAs you probably have noticed from your sniffling neighbors, cold and flu season is well underway. While washing hands and increased consumption of vitamin C are great starting points, extra preventative measures can be taken around the home:

  • Disinfect – Think about parts of the home that are touched each day all day, doorknobs, faucets, light switches, remote controls, your computer keyboard etc. Wipe all these hot spots down with a disinfectant wipe.
  • Use ‘clean’ cleaning products – All this disinfecting doesn’t matter if you are using dirty supplies. Change out your mop heads and wash dish towels regularly.
  • Humidifiers are your friend – Help alleviate dry nasal passages with the use of a humidifier. Remember to clean them regularly to prevent bacteria.
  • Wash bedding – Wash your sheets, blankets, pillowcases as well as any furniture covers in hot water and put them in the dryer on a high setting.

So far in January, 43 states including Colorado are reporting widespread flu activity. If you or someone in your family is experiencing flu like symptoms, including a high fever, visit your physician. To learn more about flu signs and symptoms, click here.
