It’s that time of year again when the cold and flu season begins. The cold and flu season presents a unique set of issues for your workplace, gym, school, or favorite restaurant. Fortunately, there are cleaning and disinfection routines that can help you and your family maintain a healthy and safe atmosphere at work or home.

Cleaning and disinfection procedures are a method of preventing the transmission of germs and infectious diseases. Traditional cleaning is necessary and is the first stage of disinfection. In order for a disinfectant to successfully destroy a virus or bacterium on a surface, the surface must first be free of oils and debris; otherwise, the disinfectant will not be able to do its work. A high touch point surface, such as door handles, countertops, handrails, elevator buttons, faucets, and so on, is one of the most critical places to disinfect on a regular basis. When utilizing the appropriate EPA–registered chemicals and following manufacturer requirements, increasing the frequency of disinfection will help stop the spread of germs.ati

While appropriate cleaning and disinfection are helpful in preventing the spread of infectious diseases, the CDC reminds us that our personal actions can also help. The CDC offers the following advice:

  • Avoid coming into contact with sick people.
  • Limit your contact with others if you’re sick.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Proper handwashing practices should be used.
  • Keep your hands away from your eyes, nose, and mouth.
