Your hands are literally crawling with germs and bacteria. On any given day, you probably touch hundreds of objects. No wonder germs spread so quickly! Did you know that the average office worker touches roughly 30 objects each and every minute? That same person also touches his or her face 18.5 times each hour. That adds up to a very high risk of catching a virus!
Stop spreading viruses: Follow these handy tips for washing your hands properly.
Wash your hands often:
Before, during and after preparing food
Before and after taking care of a sick person
When your hands are visibly dirty
After going to the bathroom
After coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose
After handling pet food or litter
After handling garbage
After sharing a cell phone or other electronic device
Keep hand sanitizer on hand at all times. Simply rub your hands vigorously for 15 seconds to remove 99.99% of bacteria – no water needed!
The easiest way to clean a device’s screen is with a microfibre cloth as they not only remove dirt but also trap and remove germs that can be found on the screen of your devices, preventing you from redepositing these germs on other surfaces. And unlike paper-based towels, microfibre cloths gently clean the sensitive glass on a smartphone or tablet without running the risk of scratching it.
Consider using a minimal amount of water to dampen the cloth first.
To remove large amounts of fingerprints or grease, apply Vert-2-Go Bio Electroclean to the microfibre cloth and then proceed to wipe down your electronic devices.
Never spray any cleaning or disinfecting solution directly onto the screen of your device.
To clean and disinfect your tablets or smart phones, SABER Wipes can be used.
Avoid dragging furniture or heavy objects along the surface of the floor when you need to move them. Attach felted pads under the legs of furniture and chairs so that you can easily glide them without scuffing the surface. Check the pads periodically for wear, and replace them when needed.
Never use wheeled chairs directly on the floor – use a chair mat or a hard plastic floor protector instead. Also place protectors under narrow furniture casters, or replace them with large rubber or soft polyurethane wheels.
Remember to wash your hands before AND after using the machines. Bring your own water bottle, towel, and floor mats (and clean them often). And don’t forget to shower after your workout. These steps will greatly reduce your exposure to the infectious germs that thrive in hot and humid environments like gyms and locker rooms.
Because abrasives and buildup like dirt particles and small pebbles are a direct threat to your floors! The friction of footsteps can cause these tiny troublemakers to act like sandpaper on a floor’s surface. All it takes is one puny pebble to mark the surface or damage the finish!
Tip: Vacuum as often as needed, and place mats both inside and outside entrances to trap these floor-scratching abrasives.
