We do the best we can to keep our homes clean and healthy, but we can’t always see germs and bacteria. They are often hiding in plain sight all over your home.
Which Room Collects the Most Bacteria?
Although it is commonly assumed that the bathroom is the germiest place in the home, it is actually the kitchen. Some food stored in the kitchen, such as raw meat and vegetables, can carry toxic bacteria like Salmonella and E.Coli. This bacteria can contaminate a number of items and surfaces in the kitchen including:
- Cutting boards
- Hand towels and rags
Bacteria can also escape from your refrigerator and circulate into the air. Exposure to these types of bacteria can pose serious health risks.
Germs aren’t the only things polluting your kitchen, however. Nonstick pans have been known to contain perfluorooctanoic acid, a toxic chemical that can linger in your air. Cooking can also disperse smoke into your air, while cleaning products spread chemicals around.
Keeping It Clean
Since the kitchen is where food is kept and meals are prepared, it is important to make sure to reduce and eliminate harmful bacteria missed with regular cleaning practices. The best way to accomplish this is a professional disinfection treatment to reset the environment.
At Green Home Solutions TrueEnviro, we use Halosil’s plant-based disinfectant to kill bacteria in any space. It is EPA registered and has been proven to kill 99.9999% of bacteria, including C.difficile spores. Not only will this fine vapor sanitize surfaces in your kitchen, but it will treat your indoor air as well, leaving your kitchen completely fresh and clean.
Unlike other cleaners, our disinfectant does not use harsh chemicals, making it perfect for the kitchen. It combines hydrogen peroxide and silver ions to release free radicals that combat bacteria, breaking down harmful enzymes all the way to their core. It also binds to the bacteria’s DNA, preventing them from multiplying. Hasil’s formula then decomposes into water and oxygen, leaving behind no harmful chemicals.
GHS TrueEnviro also offers fast, effective, affordable and eco-friendly solutions for mold testing and removal, air duct cleaning, odor remediation, and water restoration.
Have the peace of mind that your kitchen is clean and safe with Green Home Solutions TrueEnviro. We Make Air Better!
