How to protect yourself during Flu season

It starts with a sniffle and an annoying tickly cough and before you know it, the aches, pains, headache and fever arrive too. We think you will agree that no one chooses to catch the flu, and this blog is dedicated to preventing the spread of this winter nasty throughout your home and office.

The annual ‘flu season is all too familiar, and prevention is key. Did you know that approximately 60% of workplace illness is contracted from contaminated office equipment? This scarily high percentage can easily be reduced through the introduction of the correct hygiene and cleaning regime. Often, we forget these invisible bacteria really can be everywhere. Think about all the communal door handles, keyboards, work desks, remote controls and so much more……

Below shows the shocking truth of how much bacteria are surrounding us daily at work and home, and even on our travels. Without the right sanitizing regime these bacteria and viruses can multiply at rapid speed. Read on to see how to protect yourself from these all too common nasties.

Your primary armour in the fight against germs is Anti-bac+, the new sanitizing range that really does have it all. Imagine an army of bacteria and virus fighters, ready to destroy 99.9999% of Influenza, E.coli, HIV, Rabies and so much more.

Did you know that after just one use, a smartphone containing a living virus on the screen will have transferred around 30% of that virus to your fingertips? So, the killer question: Do you wash your hands after each use of a smartphone? No?  Not not many people do, let’s face it, we all need an effective anti-bacterial screen cleaner.

AF’s re-sealable tub contains 60 wipes that activate in just 30 seconds of use, destroying 99.9999% harmful bacteria and viruses. We think you’ll agree that’s a rapid response time. Obviously, we’re fully aware how much time we spend scrolling away on our smartphones, so maybe we need to be looking at the areas that are not so obvious as we go about our busy lives like commuting and using shared office equipment.

We’re not trying to spread fear, rather more the word that there is a defence against the myriad of bacteria lurking on everyday surfaces. We should also mention the Sanitizing Surface Wipes. A re-sealable tub contains 50 extra thick, durable wipes to tackle the most stubborn residue from all surfaces. You can rest assured that these trusty wipes will kill up to 99.9999% of bacteria and viruses from your surface. Furthermore, you only need to clean for 30 seconds for the anti-bacterial properties to take effect.  Starting the Anti-bac+ sanitizing regime is a no brainer. If you would like to prevent the ‘flu viruses and other nasty bacteria spreading, a hygienic cleaning regime is your answer.

So, beware when you see people on guard leaping away from the office sneezes, remember that 80% of infections are spread via contaminated surface areas, rather than that person with the annoying tickly cough! You may want to pass them a sanitizing hand rub to be on the safe side though…
