4 Tips for a Clean & Sanitized House
Keeping a home clean is important any time there are visitors - whether that's for a single showing or an open house. Tidiness can become an even higher priority when health concerns are present.
So, in order to maintain a clean and sanitized home, here are a few tips to help keep visitors - and yourself - safe and healthy.
1. Clean air filters
Routinely cleaning or changing air filters not only helps your heating and air conditioning system run more efficiently, it also helps keep particles like dust, pollen, bacteria and more from circulating in the air in your home.
2. Provide shoe covers
Our shoes take us everywhere - from muddy puddles to city streets. One way to prevent dirt from those places entering your home is to wear shoe covers. Many visitors will avoid removing their shoes before entering a home, so providing a shoe cover option could help keep floors and carpets clean.
3. Use hand sanitizer
We touch many, many surfaces throughout the day and we often bring part of those home with us as soon as we open the door. It's always best to wash your hands frequently, but if that's not an option, keep hand sanitizer handy to help between washes.
4. Wear a face mask
Face masks are one of the best ways to prevent airborne particles from entering your nose and mouth. Not only does it help keep you safe, but it helps others by preventing any bacteria or microbes from your body from entering the airstream.
These are just a few precautions you can take to maintain the health and safety of you and your home. Do you have any other tips?
