Flu prevention tips from Maid Right

Flu season is expected to a rough one this year, but there are things you can do to keep your family and workplace safe.

Kyle and Tania price of Maid Right stopped by WBTV News Sunday Morning to share tips so that you don't get sick this holiday season.

Tips include:

Flu vaccines are the best way to reduce the chances of getting the flu and minimizing any the time you might be sick in bed. The CDC recommends everyone 6 months or older get a flu vaccine every year. Shots are available at many pharmacies and grocery chains during the fall. Although they suggest nasal spray vaccines for children 2 to 8 years of age, they stress the importance of getting the protection early.

Keep hands clean to stay healthy. Wash your hands often with soap or water, or use an alcohol based sanitizer. Cleaning your hands regularly ensures that cold and flu germs won't enter your body through eye rubbing or touching your mouth.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth! Public surfaces are a hot-bed for flu germs and other bacteria, and when you touch your eyes, nose, or mouth, you're giving these germs easily entry to your fragile immune system.

Try to avoid contact with sick people, and if you're sick, try to avoid contact with others.

Always be sure to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or tightly closed arm when you cough or sneeze.

In between Maid Right cleanings, be sure to clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may have been contaminated with germs like the flu.

Try and relax during the cold and flu season. Stress is a big contributor to a lowered immune system. Don't let stress make you susceptible to the flu. Maid Right can help you take away a little of your stress, and also take care of disinfecting those surfaces in your house as well.

Our residential home cleaning company owners keep your home clean and germ free as another line of defense against the flu.
