Now more than ever, cleaning and disinfectant products are flying off the shelves at local grocery stores and mostly sold out everywhere online. Germs live everywhere and can be easily be spread through the air or on surfaces so its important to disinfect and kill the germs. 

There are different types of germs, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses. Bacteria are one-celled organisms found throughout nature that can help you through vaccines and medicine or can hurt you such as strep throat.  Fungi are multi-celled organisms that like to live in damp and warm environments. Viruses cannot live on their own and need a host to survive and can cause the common cold.  Protozoa are also one-celled organisms that love the water and can cause infections. 

The most important thing to do to protect yourself from germs is by washing your hands after touching anything. Use warm water and soap to wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds. Remember to clean under your fingernails and use alcohol-based sanitizer when soap and water isn’t available. 

Cleaning surfaces with soap and water around the house, helps to reduce germs. Areas should be disinfected regularly and remember to throw away paper towel or through towel in the washing machine once done disinfecting to prevent germs from spreading again. 

A little prevention goes along way. By doing these simple habits such as hand washing and disinfecting your home can help protect your health.
