Reality check: According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), your home’s air quality might be up to eight times more toxic than the air outdoors. Culprits like mold, pet dander and even chimney smoke all contribute to indoor air pollution, while viruses like COVID-19 can linger in the air long after a cough or a sneeze. So, how do you protect your family? To make cleaner air a priority in your home, try an air filtration apparatus like the Trane CleanEffects system. The Trane system removes up to 99.98 percent of airborne particles, including a wide variety of harmful bacteria and allergens. The system is also certified asthma and allergy-friendly, making it a good option for family members with breathing difficulties. Talk to the experts at SS&B Heating and Cooling about whether the Trane system is a good fit for your home.
Home cooks know all about the dangers of cross-contamination, or the risks of handling bacteria-ridden raw foods like meat, seafood and eggs. And while a cursory swipe with a Clorox wipe might seem like the best way to tackle surface bacteria, studies show that harmful germs—like the coronavirus that causes COVID-19—can linger on surfaces for hours. Think of it this way: If you venture out to the grocery store and pick up coronavirus on your hands, the virus can easily transfer to your bathroom faucet knobs when you wash your hands. To conquer cross-contamination once and for all, consider a hands-free, mess-free alternative like motion-activated sink fixtures. Not only do motion-activated fixtures solve food contamination issues, eliminating the need to touch your kitchen or bathroom faucet can also dramatically reduce bacteria circulation in your home.
