Germs can be found on everything we touch including inanimate objects such as desktops, doorknobs, keys, remote controls, and computer keyboards to name but a few. Cold and flu viruses are found on many of these items as well as in the air we breathe, and the water and food we drink and eat. As many as 80% of all common infections are spread through the environment we live in and the buildings we go to work in. With so many new diseases and viruses emerging and established germs becoming drug resistant, we are all becoming more concerned about the health and safety of us and our loved ones. American Hometown Services has provided cleaning and hygiene expertise, janitorial and facility maintenance for businesses throughout Illinois, Iowa and Missouri since 1985.
Easy Transmission of Harmful Germs
The cold and flu virus is capable of surviving on surfaces for up to 72 hours; an adult working in an office environment touches as many as 30 objects every 60 seconds. Most people will have those germs on their hands and bring the virus’s home to their families. Once home the germs are spread through contact on door handles, light switches, appliances and more. Dare we even begin to think about how many germs our children bring into the home? If you are concerned about how clean and hygienic your business or home is, here are some things to consider – The definition of cleaning is “the removal of unwanted matter”. The definition of hygiene is “to reduce the risk of infections”. At American Hometown Services, Inc. we are dedicated to cleaning for both health and hygiene!
