Flu season is considered to be October to May, which means March is not the time to slack on healthy habits. Parents often take precautions to protect their children from the virus, such as sending them to school with hand sanitizer handy and taking them to get the flu vaccine. However, the flu virus is easy to spread and can be passed on before you even know you’re sick. People carrying the virus can be contagious one day before their symptoms appear and about five to seven days after they first get symptoms.
Flu epidemics often start in schools, followed by students spreading the virus to family members and people around them. Parents can’t fully control the germs at school, but they do have the opportunity to make sure their home is in tip-top shape before, during and after flu season – if they have the time and materials to do so.
This is when Two Maids & A Mop’s ‘Top to Bottom Deep Cleaning Package’ comes in handy.
