I stopped at the store and picked up a few more spray cans.
The last three weeks have been simply miserable. What started out as a common cold, or so I thought, turned out to be a respiratory flu. I have been batting it ever since and even though I don’t have any congestion anymore the nagging cough is still hanging on. So much so that I no longer have a voice which is really frustrating all on it’s own. My poor husband has been cleaning and disinfecting every surface of the house and trying to take care of the house all this time too. He, fortunately, did not come down with the same thing. I really feel bad for him and when I have the energy I try and clean up as much as I can myself. I went to the doctor today for a check up and he asked me how we were making sure that no one else got sick at home. I told him the steps we were taking and he asked me what type of HVAC system we had. I told him that we had hot water heat and there were baseboard registers throughout the house. He asked me if we had cleaned them and I told him I never even thought about it. He said that the germs and bacteria could easily grow on these surfaces because they were constantly warm. He suggested spraying them down with a disinfectant when I got home. I stopped at the store and picked up a few more spray cans. I walked around a dowsed each register really well when I got home. The house smelled great and I felt better having done so. I hope this whole thing ends soon and I can get back to my normal life.
