Our family, like many of you, have been impacted very much by COVID. While many countries and states are easing Covid-19 restrictions and the places seem to be opening up again, you are sure to be feeling the impact of this virus for a very long time. This is an inescapable fact that it will be impacting our lives for a long time. Of course, though, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t stop yourself from enjoying your life. Working to keep your home Covid-free is a good way to ensure that you can be social and host guests, while also providing you with a safe space that will actively work to protect you and your family from getting sick.

Air Quality

One of the things that made Covid-19 so potent and challenging is its ability to be transmitted through droplets in the air. The more of these droplets that someone comes into contact with, the more likely they are to catch the virus, and this means that air quality is very important. You can buy air filter devices that will work to clean a lot of the bad things out of the air in your home. This can be a great way to get started with this process.

Air Movement

Air movement is another good way to prevent a virus from building up inside a building. Opening windows can often be enough to help with this, allowing air to pass through your home and keeping the air that you are breathing nice and fresh. You can also use electronic tools to help with this. Many air conditioning systems bring in air from the outside, and this means that they can work to cycle the air within your property. You may need to find an AC repair company to make sure that your machine is functioning correctly before relying on this.

Hygiene & Cleaning

Hygiene is incredibly crucial when you’re trying to avoid a virus. Cleaning can be a great solution when you’re trying to find ways to reduce your viral load, and there are loads of products on the market that have been proven to defeat Covid-19. Getting into a routine of cleaning all of the things that people touch around your home can be a good way to ensure that the place is as safe as possible. I have my family change clothes when they get home and drop them in the laundry room and each day I sanitize the high traffic areas and door knobs.

Testing

When everyone on is tested for Covid prior to meeting with groups, it is one of the best ways to avoid being exposed and or spreading it. Many governments around the world are offering at-home tests to their population, making it possible to test yourself before entertaining guests. You can ask your guests to do the same thing, ensuring that everyone is free from the virus before you get together.

As you can see, there are loads of ways to keep your home free from Covid-19. While you can’t guarantee that something won’t slip through the cracks, doing work like this can be a great way to make sure that everyone around you is healthy and able to enjoy the easing restrictions.
