2 tips for maintaining a sanitary home

If you want to maintain a sanitary home, here are two tips that should help you to do this.

1. Cover your doors and windows with UPVC flyscreens

Flies can make a house unsanitary. The reason for this is as follows; flies often feed on animal waste. When they do this, some of the dangerous pathogens on the waste can be transferred to the flies' bodies. If this happens to a fly, and the fly in question then enters your home and lands on the fruit bowl in your dining room, or the leftovers on the kitchen counter, this food could end up becoming contaminated with the bacteria on the fly's body.

This could then result in you or your family members becoming ill when you eventually eat the fruit or the leftovers. As such, if you want to ensure that your home is sanitary, you must do what you can to keep flies out of it. This is easier said than done, especially during periods of hot weather, when you probably prefer to keep some of your doors and windows ajar. One way to resolve this conundrum is to place UPVC flyscreens over the doors and windows that you tend to keep open a lot of the time.

These flyscreens will act as physical barriers that will prevent flies from entering your home and contaminating your food. Moreover, you will still be able to enjoy the cool breeze that comes in through the open doors and windows to which they are attached.

2. Clean up promptly after having barbecues or dining al fresco in your garden

If you often cook your meals indoors and then dine al fresco, or if you like to host barbecues in your garden on a regular basis, then it's important to be aware of the impact that these dining habits could have on the cleanliness of your home. The reason for this is as follows; if you are a little bit blasé about tidying up when you eat outdoors, you could find yourself dealing with a highly unpleasant and unsanitary rodent infestation at some point in the future.

This is because the rats and mice which roam around your garden will be drawn towards your house by the crumbs left behind in your patio area or by your back door after you dine outside. This could then result in these rodents sneaking inside and setting up camp somewhere inside your home. Due to the fact that some rodents transmit very serious diseases, this could be a major sanitation problem which could put you and your family's health at risk.

As such, it's important to clean up promptly and thoroughly every time you dine outside.

New Home and New Garden

Hello, my name is Cindy and this blog details the things my husband and I have learnt during the process of renovating our home and garden. If there is one thing I hate, it is a messy garden and home. Although the property we moved into was very nice, the garden was overgrown, there wasn't a patio and I really wanted a water feature. The inside of the house was outdated and I decided I would like to extend the kitchen. It was going to be a big job so we found the best contractors we could. They were fantastic and they explained exactly what they were doing at every step along the way.
