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.

At Click Cleaning we don’t just offer you a large range of cleaning supplies, we also offer advice through our guide section. No matter the cleaning task we have a step by step guide to assist you.

From ‘How to remove rust stains’ to guides that help you to employ eco-friendly cleaning, our guides are here for you to come back to whenever tough job comes up. There are also many videos for you to watch - these demonstrations can be viewed on our website or on YouTube. Take a look at our guide section today and find out how efficiently and effectively you will be able to clean the house.

Protective clothing and gloves

Protective clothingHealth and safety plays an imperative part in all sectors, but even more so in the commercial cleaning industry as the nature of the job entails dealing with chemicals on a daily basis. Protective clothing and gloves are an essential part to your uniform, especially as some cleaning products can be abrasive.

Many of the products are also available to bulk buy, allowing you to provide your staff with all the necessary clothing and save money.

Not only has safety been thought of in the design of these products, the comfort of your employees has as well. Nothing is worse than wearing mandatory clothing that is uncomfortable and it doesn’t motivate staff to wear the apparel throughout the working day. This is why such products like our safety goggles are manufactured with comfort in mind; these goggles are constructed with extra material that acts as a cushion around the wearer’s eyes.
