Bah Humbug! Holiday Flu and Christmas Colds!
Did the holiday flu visit your home or business this season? Or maybe it was a nasty Christmas cold? Seems inevitable – every year – despite our best efforts to remain flu-free for the festivities. And soon many of our kids will head back to school, likely with a host of germs tagging along behind them. How can we keep them safe from illness in 2017? The best place to start is with a deep clean, and winter break is one of the best times to make that happen.
Here are 3 reasons why:
- Facility decontamination. A few germs (well, more than a few) were likely left behind by students and staff when they rushed off to enjoy their holiday break. Why battle an outbreak of influenza upon your return? Do a winter break deep clean and decontaminate now while the kids (and the germs) are away.
- Flu season. It’s that time of year. And schools across the nation – the world, really – are dealing with it. A school in Scotland recently closed early for Christmas break after 53 of its students and staff were hit by a “vomiting bug.” And there’s more where that came from (even in warmer states…)
- Winter wear and tear. Ice, slush, salt, and more can significantly reduce the lifespan of a school’s wood floors, carpet, tile, and more. A good clean halfway through the year can extend the life of this valuable asset. It can also help keep these surfaces germ-free, which is a great from of illness prevention.
What’s the best way to deep clean? Surface Shield.
Surface Shield cleans and stops the spread of germs. It’s an antimicrobial technology that forms a non-toxic shield on surfaces to prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and other germs that may be harmful to kids. It’s also safe, non-leaching, and harmless to both humans and animals.
