Spring Flu: What Mom Should Know

With cold and flu season upon us, there are important things to know in order to protect yourself and your family against the flu.

Disinfecting and cleaning the surfaces alone, won’t do. That only removes particles that have already landed on tables, floors, countertops and other surfaces. However, flu particles can linger in the air when a person coughs, sneezes, talks or breathes and spread to other people that walk by.

Indoor air quality plays an important factor in preventing the virus from spreading through your house. During winter and spring, when windows are kept sealed and your heaters are constantly running, stagnant, recycled air will harbor airborne allergens and bacteria – making it more important to get the right filter and change it regularly. Doing so is an important aspect of keeping your indoor air clean and free from dust and particles that can contain airborne infections.

The right filter can capture the smallest microbes in the air, reducing harmful airborne germs that not only include cold and flu viruses, but also dust, pollen, mold spores and pet dander.
