As much as we all hate to admit it, summer is slowly coming to an end and that means one thing – back to school time! For many caregivers, this also means another round of cleaning the house, from top to bottom, in order to make sure it’s ready for the new school year. In addition, the added worry of keeping your family safe from illnesses and diseases can be a daunting task. Here are five tips to help make back-to-school cleaning easier for caregivers:
- Set up a designated “clean zone” in your home where everyone can leave their shoes and jackets when they come inside. This will help to prevent dirt and germs from being tracked throughout the house.
- Make sure everyone in the home is regularly washing their hands with soap and water. Hand-washing is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infection.
- Clean high-touch areas like door handles, light switches, and countertops on a regular basis. Use disinfectant wipes or spray to help keep these surfaces virus-free.
- If someone in your household gets sick, make sure they’re staying in a separate room from other family members and using their own bathroom if possible. Regularly clean any surfaces that they have used, such as bedding and towels.
- Keep your home ventilated by opening windows or using fans to circulate air. This will help to prevent the buildup of airborne viruses indoors.
Although it may seem like an impossible task, cleaning your house from top to bottom in preparation for the back-to-school season is definitely doable. And don’t forget – a clean environment is one of the best ways to keep your family safe from illnesses and diseases. I hope you found these tips helpful.
