Smart Ways to Protect Your Home From COVID-19

by | Mar 16, 2020

The rapid spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has created uncertainty and upheaval in our daily lives throughout the nation and the world. The mantra of “social distancing” means that many of us will find ourselves limiting activities like work, shopping, school, and social events, and instead spending more time in our homes for several weeks, perhaps longer.

Our homes are our ultimate safe refuge. So it makes sense to ensure that they are equipped and prepared to provide us with the most hygienic, germ- and virus-free environment possible. To achieve this goal, we can take some concrete steps. Some are simple, common-sense preventative measures. Others involve making smart investments in our homes that will make them a safer place now and in the future.

Seek Out Accurate Information

In the fight against COVID-19, knowledge is power. Unfortunately, it’s easy to get incorrect information through social media and unreliable sources of news and information. Educate yourself about COVID-19 and keep up with the latest reliable information by accessing these websites. Bookmark them so you’ll always have accurate information on local, national, and international news about the progress of the disease.

Texas Health and Human Services

This website has information on the spread of COVID-19 in Texas, and provides basic information on preventative measures you can take to limit the spread of the virus. This will provide you with a useful local perspective on virus-related news.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

The CDC website is an extremely useful resource for information about the COVID-19 outbreak. It includes regularly updated news briefs, information on preventing illness and what to do if you’re sick, plus information on protecting homes, schools, workplaces, and community locations.

John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center

An excellent resource, with plenty of basic and advanced information on the COVID-19 virus. It is also home to the COVID-19 Interactive Map, which lets you examine the spread of the disease from the state level to worldwide.

Practical Steps You Can Take to Protect Your Home

Some of the best ways to protect your home and your family are some of the simplest. Here are steps suggested by health authorities that are both effective and easy to implement.
N

Clean

Keeping our homes clean is a basic part of disease mitigation. While cleaning does not kill viruses, regular cleaning tasks like dusting, vacuuming, and sweeping eliminates dirt and impurities that can harbor germs and viruses.
N

Disinfect

Disinfecting is the next step beyond cleaning. Disinfecting kills germs and viruses that adhere to surfaces in our home. Frequently disinfect surfaces that you come into contact with regularly, such as faucets, kitchen work surfaces, light switches, doorknobs, computer keyboards and mice, remote controls, and more.
N

Isolate

If you suspect someone in your home is ill with the COVID-19 virus, consult with your doctor. In most cases, they can be treated safely at home, and should not leave unless necessary. Consult this guide if you suspect a case in your family.

The first two of these steps, cleaning and disinfecting, are excellent habits to develop in your home. A clean home whose frequently touched surfaces are disinfected regularly is a healthier home. You’ll protect yourself and your family not only from COVID-19 but from many common illnesses, like colds and flu, by performing those steps. To learn more about, consult this excellent resource from the CDC.

Team Enoch Can Help Make Your Home a Healthier Place

You can do a lot to make your home a healthier place with the practical steps we’ve discussed. But Team Enoch can help you make improvements that will make your home a safer refuge now and in the future.

At Team Enoch we take your safety seriously. All of our technicians will take the necessary precautions to prevent spread in your home. Here are some ways we can help.

Install a Whole House Virus Killer

Viruses that enter your home can often survive for some period of time, circulating throughout your home in the air. Whole-home in-duct air purifiers can kill many common viruses, plus remove allergens and germs. A whole-home air purifier is a smart investment now and for the future.

We recommend the REME HALO whole-home in-duct air purifier. This award-winning device is installed in your central air handler and cleans the air in your home by producing a hydro-peroxide plasma that actively purifies pollutants. You’ll experience fresher, cleaner air in your home.

Team Enoch has REME HALO units in-stock and ready for your home at $890 installed.

Add a Water Filtration System to Your Kitchen

Clean water is always essential to your health. While COVID-19 is not spread by water, why not take the opportunity now to provide your family with a safer and healthier water supply. A reverse osmosis water system with UV light kills many harmful bacteria and viruses. We offer a system that mounts under your kitchen sink so you’ll enjoy clean, refreshing water whenever you open the tap.

Get your own system for $590, installed.

Install a Bidet Seat on Your Toilet

If you’ve been following the news, you’ve seen the images of store shelves that have been swept bare as people stock up on supplies. In particular, you may have noted shelves that have been emptied of toilet paper. There is an alternative.

In much of the world, personal cleanliness at the toilet is achieved with the use of a bidet. While installing a separate bidet can be a big, expensive job, you can enjoy many of the benefits of a bidet by having a bidet toilet seat installed in your bathroom. Beyond cutting down on the need for toilet paper, bidet seats offer many positive health benefits and keep you and your home cleaner.

We offer bidet seats, installed, for $390.

Make Your Home a Sanctuary

You owe it to yourself and your family to take the health challenges facing our community, state, and nation seriously. Stay up to date on current information and recommendations by using the resources we’ve provided and employ the practical measures we’ve outlined to make your home as safe as possible. And remember, even if you’re in good health, your attention to halting the spread of COVID-19 will protect those in our community who may be more at risk than you are.
