Cleaning helps Prevent Infection

Among the Immune Compromised

 

Cleaning and disinfecting are important during flu season, especially for people with cancer. Cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, may weaken the immune system, and people with compromised immune systems are at a higher risk of getting the flu, which can lead to serious illness.

Proper cleaning and sterilization are effective ways to minimize the transmission of the influenza virus through surface contact. This involves washing and sterilizing high-traffic areas, such as computer monitors; mice and keyboards; doorknobs; light switches; faucet handles; counter tops; and conference tables.

Pazeto Cleaning Service is a partner with Cleaning for a Reason, which provides free cleaning for women with cancer. Visit CleaningForAReason.org or PazetoService.com. January 2014.
