5 Ways To Combat The Spread Of The Flu In Your Home
Use Soap And Water
Washing your hands is important in keeping the flu virus away, and it must be done regularly and properly. Simply washing your hands with water is not enough, you must use warm water with soap.
Antibacterial soap is best because it can kill germs and bacteria, and warm water can help in the entire process of washing your hands. You must wash your hands when touching surfaces that have come in contact with other people as well as washing your hands soon after you touch your face and other parts of your body.
Don’t Touch Your Face
If you have the flu, touching your face is inevitable, especially since you’ll be sneezing, coughing, having a runny nose, and having runny eyes. Although you may have to touch your face, washing your hands is necessary after touching your face so often.
Try to avoid touching the face or body with your hands, and try to use napkins or towels so you’re not always washing your hands. Dispose of napkins after a single use, and wash towels with soap and hot water to keep them clean, and this can all help to prevent the spread of the flu virus.

You need to ensure that your Las Vegas HVAC unit is working correctly and has a clean air filter. Check your air filter to make sure it’s not dirty, and the change the air filter if it’s been in the unit for several months without being changed. A clean air filter in an HVAC unit will catch all the germs and bacteria in the air, up to 99.9%, which means it will help in the prevention of spreading the flu.
Watch What You Touch
If you know you’re going to touch a faucet, then try to turn the faucet off with a paper towel you have just dried your hands with. Avoid touching surfaces that have a lot of germs because they are a great way to catch and spread the flu virus.
