Green Cleaning before Disinfecting!

There is a step before disinfecting that many might skip.  You might think, “to save some time, why not just spray the counters down with a bleach solution and wipe away any dirt and grime at the same time?”  But to effectively disinfect a surface, it must be properly cleaned first. Switching to green-cleaning (before disinfection!) will improve your home's air quality, remove harsh chemicals from your environment and help you stay safe at home.


Limpieza Ecologica Antes de Desinfectar!

Hay un paso antes de desinfectar que muchos podrían omitir. Para ahorrar algo de tiempo, ¿por qué no simplemente rociar los mostradores con una solución de cloro  y limpiar la suciedad y la mugre al mismo tiempo? Para desinfectar efectivamente una superficie, primero debe limpiarse adecuadamente. Mejorará la calidad del aire de su hogar, eliminará los productos químicos agresivos de su entorno y lo ayudará a mantenerse seguro en su hogar.


Fragrance, Asthma, and Indoor Air Quality:

Do you have asthma, and have you experienced sneezing, wheezing, or itchy watery eyes when exposed to perfume or room deodorizers? Fragrance sensitivity may be impacting your asthma. When there are a lot of fragrances in an environment, even people without asthma may experience these types of symptoms.  


Fragancia, Asma y Calidad del Aire Interior

¿Tiene asma y ha experimentado estornudos, sibilancias o picazón en los ojos llorosos cuando se expone a perfumes o desodorantes de la habitación? La sensibilidad a la fragancia puede estar afectando su asma. Cuando hay muchas fragancias en un ambiente, incluso las personas sin asma pueden sentir este tipo de síntomas. 


Como Desinfectar tu Hogar

Todos estamos pasando más tiempo en casa durante estos tiempos desafiantes y sin precedentes. El distanciamiento social y permanecer en casa son nuestras primera líneas de defensa contra COVID-19, pero también debemos mantener nuestros hogares seguros y desinfectados para evitar una posible transmisión. Los Centros para el Control de Enfermedades de los EE. UU. (CDC) tienen una gran cantidad de indicaciones  para hacer que su hogar sea saludable cuando se trata de COVID-19.


Disinfecting your Home

We are all spending more time at home during these challenging and unprecedented times. Social distancing and staying at home are our first line of defense against COVID-19, but we should also be keeping our homes safe and disinfected to prevent possible transmission. The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a wealth of guidelines for making your home healthy when it comes to COVID-19.
