pittsburgh limo serviceUnfortunately, avoiding germs altogether is impossible, but there ways to cut back on spreading them, especially while traveling. If you follow the travel tips in this article, there is less risk of respiratory infection and contagious disease.

Preventing a Respiratory Infection

  • Always cover your nose and mouth with a handkerchief or tissue when coughing or sneezing.

  • Instead of leaving tissues lying about, place them in a trashcan with a sealed lid.

  • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, wash your hands with soap and warm water or use gel hand sanitizer.

  • If possible, stay out of the public whenever you have a cold or flu.

  • Before eating, always wash your hands.

  • Never share beverage containers or eating utensils with another person.

  • Avoid sharing things like towels, lipstick, toothbrushes, and other items that could carry respiratory germs.

Daily Tips

In addition to fighting off respiratory infections, other actions should be taken to stop germs from being spread.

  • Completely dry surfaces after cleaning, since dampness allows any remaining germs to survive.

  • Disinfect and dry cleaning materials, since germs stick and are hard to remove. This includes sponges and reusable paper towels. Cloths can be cleaned in the washing machine and brushes in the dishwasher.

  • Always close the toilet lid after use, even when the bowl is clean.

  • Use a disinfectant on the toilet seat, rim, and handle.

  • Both bathtubs and showers should be disinfected prior to use.

  • Make sure prep areas for food are hygienic.

  • Never use a wood cutting board, and have separate boards for vegetables versus meat, fish, and poultry.

  • After handling “high risk” foods, such as raw poultry, always wash and dry your hands.

  • Keep pet food away from human food.

  • Wash any plastic and hard toys; for soft toys, spray on disinfectant.

Remember, these are just a few examples of the many things that you can do to keep germs from spreading. Overall, you want to keep your hands clean, since this is the primary way in which germs are spread, but also think about different surfaces that are touched.

Making Life Easier

By preventing the spread of germs, you and your family will be much healthier. However, in addition to doing something good as part of daily life, sometimes you need to treat yourself to something special. For instance, the next time you and a loved one plan a night out on the town, hire a limousine company to be your escort.
