Keep Your Family Healthy

There are many dangers around the house, every parent knows that. Thankfully there are some ways to make your house safer for yourself and children.

1). Keep Rodents Out - If you have crumbs on your floor, rodents are bound to be attracted to the smell and will enter your home. They are disgusting little creatures, and definitely not sanitary for your house.

Even if you don't have rodents, keep rat poison scattered inside your pantry just in case. Also vacuum up crumbs after you finish eating meals.

Keep eating to the kitchen, and also use napkins and sponges to clean up the table.

2). Stop Spiders In Their Tracks - Spiders can enter the house just as easily as rodents, except some spiders can be dangerous and lethal.

Grab yourself some Mortein spider spray and spray it around the edges of the house, toilet, and any little cracks or holes inside the house. These sprays usually last around 6 months, so keep the bottle up high and spray the house twice a year.

3). Get That Heater Checked - If you have a wall heater, get it serviced and checked every few months or at least twice a year. Your wall heater could be doing your family damage, but you won't know until you get it checked.

4). Always Lock Up - Always keep the front door and back door locked inside your house, especially in the night time. Always lock everything up before you go out. It's better to be safe than sorry, and show the children how to lock doors and windows as well.

5). Clean Up Your Bathroom - There are tonnes of germs in your bathroom (think shower and toilet and sink). People using the toilet, brushing their teeth in the sink, standing in the shower, that's a lot of germs. Make it a habit of once a week of completely desensitizing the bathroom. Wipe down all the surfaces, wash the toilet and clean the shower to get rid of soap scum.

Germs spread easily, it's better to have a super clean bathroom than a moderately clean one.

6). Make Dust Disappear - Dust is awful for our bodies, especially if we are in contact with it a lot. Dust causes asthma, blocked noses and chest infections. Get out the dust buster and clean up any dust.

7). Banish Pet Hair - If you got a dog or a cat, you will definitely find fur all over everything. Vacuum up fur at least once a day, it makes the house messy, looks disgusting and can make children sick especially if they have a cold.

Keeping your house clean and tidy and safe is good for you and your family.

How to keep DUST off WALLS?!
It is attracted by anti static electricity. I was horrified to see it all - thanks to a new lamp throwing light up the wall.
