Fight The Flu

In addition to missing school and work, sick family members will often pass the flu back and forth to one another for weeks on end leaving everyone tired and unhappy. Here are five simple steps you can take to combat the spread of flu in your Brenham home.

Germs can be in your home for quite a few days before any family members show symptoms of being sick and survive for a week after the final symptoms of the flu have gone away. This means that sick family members should be quarantined for a minimum of two weeks. Parents will need to make different sleeping arrangements for sick family members and deep clean everything they touch.

Not many people realize just how many germs that they have on their hands at the end of the day. Once the germs are on one's hands, it is only a matter of time before they touch their mouth or eyes and transfer the germs. During flu season, washing hands should be a mandatory practice for everyone in the family.

Cleaning and sanitizing certain surfaces in your Brenham home might kill off the germs before your family ever has the chance to touch them. The most important surfaces include the bathroom and kitchen counters where people tend to touch their eyes, mouth, and nose.

Many health experts claim that a flu shot is the single best step for preventing sicknesses. These shots are generally safe for those who are over 6 months old and younger than the age of 65. If you have family members who are not between those ages, then you will need to speak with their doctor to see if they are healthy enough for vaccinations.

Your HVAC system plays a bigger role in your family's respiratory health than you might realize. During a service call, your HVAC technician will thoroughly inspect the system for any extra mold or bacteria in the ducts. They will also be able to change out old filters to improve the air quality within your home and ease the symptoms of the flu.
