To minimise the risk of accidents at home, we all know the risks associated with spills and trailing wires in regards to slips, trips and falls. Yet, sometimes simply keeping your home tidy isn’t enough. We need to ensure that our surfaces are kept disease free to prevent illness at home, and the spread of germs.
Ensuring your surfaces are kept disease free
Hygienic cleaning can ensure that your surfaces are kept disease free. This process involves considering where there are likely to be more germs in your home, and focussing your clean there to prevent the spread of germs.
If you want to be certain that your surfaces are kept disease free, it is best to use a disinfectant spray. This will kill the majority of germs, and so prevent them from spreading.
It is possible to wash germs away with warm, soapy water, however, this does not guarantee that the germs are killed, nor does it ensure that your surfaces are kept disease free.
Remember to thoroughly dry any areas that you have washed. Damp surfaces encourage germs to live, and water can facilitate the spread of germs.
Claiming compensation for accidents at home
If you have been involved in an accident at home, and you believe a third party is to blame, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for the harm and distress you have been made to endure.
No matter whether you slipped due to a leaking boiler, or have become ill due to unhygienic conditions in your new rented property, whatever the situation, Accident Advice Helpline can assist you.
