Germs are microscopic living organisms that form a natural part of our living environment. Many bacteria are even useful to our well-being and cause no problems to a healthy immune system. So no need to get alarmed - however, it is important to keep in mind that some germs can be extremely dangerous and cause severe illnesses. A high concentration of germs can also strain the immune system. Fortunately, you can take some simple measures to protect yourself against these germs and bacteria. Continuous disinfection of all surfaces is not necessary - more important is to understand how germs spread, the risks involved and how sufficient hygiene helps combat germs.
Simple steps for protecting yourself
Not all germs and bacteria are harmful but some can be extremely dangerous. Protecting yourself against germs is essential for your own comfort, health and well-being. Elderly people and children often run a higher risk of bacteria-caused infections but everyone can be at risk if proper precaution is not taken.
Most illnesses and discomfort could be avoided by following some simple advice:
Remember to wash your hands regularly
, especially after going to the bathroom. Consider carrying a hand sanitizer such as one of the Cyber Clean® Cleaning Essentials line
with you to clean your hands.
Avoid contact with sick people and stay home if you feel unwell.
Germs spread through physical contact; shaking hands with someone that has a cold can lead you to getting infected as well. Read more about how to prevent the flu.
Regularly clean your living environment.
Be it at home or in the office, cleaning your immediate surroundings helps you fight bacteria and prevent illnesses from spreading. Avoid infections by regularly disinfecting surfaces that have a high potential of interactions, such as controllers, door knobs and keyboards. Cyber Clean®
is the most efficient method for cleaning objects and surfaces with hard to reach cracks and crevices that often harbor harmful bacteria.
