Health is at risk if you do not clean your home

We are all aware that cleanliness plays a critical role when it comes to our health. However, after a recent report concerning the deadly rodent-borne Hantavirus was published, we at Click Cleaning believe that house cleaning will become even more prevalent in a bid to prevent this virus from spreading.

In the report it stated that a woman cleaning a house as part of a television programme called “Hoarding: Buried Alive” has developed a respiratory illness caused by Hantavirus. Further to this, 30 film crew and neighbours have been warned to look out for symptoms. The home in Huston is currently under quarantine.

Hantavirus is a disease that is carried by rodents and contracted by inhaling particles of mice droppings or urine. When cleaning, the disease can be carried into the air, but what is more pressing is that the Hantavirus has a 40% mortality rate. It is a fatal disease that has already taken the lives of three people who stayed in infested cabins whilst visiting Yosemite National Park.

It is extremely important that your home is sanitary and pest-free. When a home is not looked after and it is inviting rodents in, health will be at risk.

It isn’t just Hantavirus that rats and mice are known for carrying – Salmonella, Murine Typhus and Leptospirosis are all infections that can be contracted from these pests.

Whenever you are cleaning using chemicals or believe that you have had a visit from an uninvited visitor we strongly recommend that you wear protective clothing such as a face mask.
